    but if they did they'd be a little like this one! lol

    fancied making something this evening for a bit of fun and i decided on making a new strop,wood backed with an antler handle.

    so heres the raw materials,a nice bit of English yew and a red deer horn from an Exmoor stag that met with an untimely end ....but thats another story!

    and heres the job done:



    now a strop as this deserves better than jewellers rouge or toothpaste for a compound so i managed to aquired some 60micron diamond cutting paste:

    apply just a little:

    and this stuff cuts well! razors edge in just a few strops of the knife.

    thanks for looking.

    Very nice. My strop has always just been the back of an old belt, but now that I have seen this..........
