Wood and Knife: Make a Strop


Not offered in 2020-2021

Out of stock

Categories: ,


Make your own strop (for keeping your knife perfectly sharp) while practicing your knife grips and cuts. Learn to carve your own decorative mark too!

Wood and leather for the project provided, as my gift.

The class may be extended to an additional afternoon or evening, depending on how the carving unfolds, to allow for the glueing and decorative carving.
