Cutting tools sooner or later become dull, requiring timely sharpening and polishing. A simple but effective accessory like the BeaverCraft LS2P1 Leather Strop for honing and sharpening will make your wood carving process much easier and fun.
As you know, a good tool is half the battle. However, it remains of high quality and reliable as long as you maintain its condition and take good care of it in time. Cutting tools like wood carving and whittling knives require special attention and care. The working edge of the blade can wear out during the carving process, become dull and stop performing its functions. And instead, it can crumble or tear the wooden material and ruin your whittling project.
If your knife has lost its sharpness and needs to improve its cutting edge condition, the BeaverCraft LS2P1 will come to the rescue. It is much easier to keep the cutting edge sharp with a leather strop than re-sharpen a completely dull wood carving tool blade.
You can sharpen your wood carving knives just with one leather strop. But to get more effective results, you can use a green-grey polishing (stropping) compound. This polishing compound is blocky, hard, and has a crayon-like texture. Just apply it to leather or stropping block, and make your knives razor-sharp easily.
