A Sharpening Strop System, Optimized for the Workbench or Countertop.
Maintain your edge sharpness!

~~~~~~~~~~

Woodworkers, Makers and Cooks alike require sharp tools for their best work.
We have found that keeping tools sharp as you work speeds
both the working and sharpening process and takes less time and effort.
Whats needed is a clean and simple way to maintain that
sharpness at the bench while working wood.

The Magstrop One - Sharpening System fulfills that need.

Click Here for some detailed Features and Specifications of our Tools.

Leather strops are not created equal.
Many strops are designed for honing carving tools,
and some are sold as loose pieces of leather.

Strops for carving tools often don't offer enough space
to properly strop a plane iron or chisel,
particularly when you use a honing guide.

A loose piece of leather isn't flat and is difficult
to fixture when two hands are on the blade.
Waves in the leather can also distort the stropping path,
changing the effective sharpening angle.
High-level sharpness demands consistency as part of it's process,
How does a blade compensate for inconsistency in sharpening media? It can't.

Magstrop Strop Tops solve those issues.

We find that stropping works best on a
leather surface that is flat, and that will not move
under the bevel edge while the blade is being pulled.
We make Magstrop Strop Tops with a perfectly flat magnetically interchangeable platen,
that allows for a quick change of Strop Top types that are all flat and ready to hone.
This can mean all the difference between
sharpening and dubbing, and dubbing is dulling.

We also find that stropping is a clean sharpening method
that helps maintain sharpness while woodworking.
We find that the plane iron and chipbreaker often do not need
disassembled for strop honing, creating an ease of use,
and saving woodworking time in the process.

Keeping your work clean is important,
and keeping tooling sharp is the most efficient way to work.

The Magstrop™ One - system is a multi-piece, interchangable strop single station sharpening tool.
It is optimized for use with Plane Blades, Chisels, Gouges and Knives.
We offer leather stropping surface interchangibility in Very Firm,
Hard Rolled Genuine Horse Butt Leather,
Cowhide Suede Leather and Basic MDF for any sharpening need.

Whether you choose to strop with or without compounds,
we offer a flat stable sharpening tool, with options for the surface you prefer.

We also offer the strop tops, in Glass and MDF.
Glass for sharpening with Sandpaper.

Simply pull your blade when honing or stropping, never push,
because pushing any edge tool during fine sharpening
even when working on the hardest stones, can dub the edge,
and will definately damage any leather strop.
This tip is a secret about sharpening, it's what gets the job done.

The Magstrop Strop Tops have a spacious 3 x 11-5/16 area for stropping.
Wide enough for nearly any woodworking blade.

The Strop Tops can be quickly interchanged from the base.
It is easy to exchange tops quickly while honing with different abrasives. Order extras and keep spares.
All it takes is a firm grasp while lifting and the magnetic force
that hold the Strop Tops to the base releases the Strop Top.
This allows for the quick change of Strop Tops on the strop base, for versatility.

Multiple Strop Tops allow sharpening flexibility.
Load them with the sandpaper grits or abrasive compounds you prefer
for the tooling you use, or switch between smooth or rough surface strops.

Veritas Bench Dog Not Included.

The Strop Base is key to the stropping system. Not only allowing Strop Top interchangability,
it also lifts the Strop Top above the bench providing room for the hands
when stopping the backs of blades and handled tools.

It also has three, dog holes in the base to help fixture it on the workbench.
The dog holes can be ordered to fit 3/4-inch round dogs, or square dogs.
Fixturing is as easy as slipping it over a single raised bench dog.

*IMPORTANT* When Ordering for Square Bench Dogs, Sizes Widely Vary.
Please annotate the diagonal length of the top of the Bench Dogs you use.
We will supply a round hole that fits over those appropriately.

Alternatively, we offer a set of four rubber non-skid feet that can be added,
for when a bench dog isn't handy.
