Our 1x30 leather strop honing belt is manufactured with the highest standards in the sharpening business. Use this belt to finish your sharp edge and you'll get great mirror polished results. It will remove minor scratching, polish, and keep the edge sharp longer. When sharpening knives, the nearly finished edge can be brought to an even sharper point by finishing on leather. Much like the old barbers' leather strops, this keeps the razor's edge. It works great on the Harbor Freight 1"x30" belt sander, but can also be used on any 1x30 belt grinding machine. The leather belt is manufactured just slightly less than the 30" to allow for stretching. When you first put the knife stropping belt on your sander, it will be very snug. Make sure to take the belt off when not in use as you don't want it to stretch too much. All of our 1x30 leather belts are made by hand in the USA. We do not cut any corners to make sure that your tool and knife sharpening experience goes smoothly with our pro and diy products. Use the included buffing compound to put a mirror finish on your knife or tool. Many knife makers and sharpeners use the leather honing belt to maintain knives as well. By regularly honing your belt on leather, you can avoid more time consuming sharpening that requires removing metal and then refining the sharp edge. The leather strops and belts perform best when a knife edge has already been brought to a sharp point. Then it is used as the final refinement to get shaving sharp and be able to shave hair on your arm. The rotation on the belt can go either way so you don't have to look for directional arrows and worry about that. The Harbor Freight 1x30 belt sander can be adjusted to allow for slight variances in the lengths of the leather honing belts.
