The Slip Strop is specially molded to polish and deburr hard to reach areas inside v-tools and gouges, as well as do a fine job on outside bevels.

Carving A Path To Success
The National Boy Scouts Jamboree was recently held in Woodcraft's home state of West Virginia. Check out this blog to see how Woodcraft helped this year's attendees earn their carving badges.
About as simple as a sharpening tool can be, but works great.
Not much to this, but it does the job. I have 2 now - one came with a Flexcut set, and I got another separately. It's amazing to me how sharp you can get carving tools with this. I was going to give 4 instead of 5 stars because every now and then I have to scrape off the polishing compound from the leather and reload, and then thought, "that's not a defect, that's maintenance on the tool". This will keep your razor-sharp tools razor-sharp, and will sharpen any slightly dull tool to a fine edge.
save time and money
makes it quick and easy to touch up an edge to keep things really sharp
Great Little Kit
Nice little kit, this thing keeps my gouges and chisels scary sharp. Easy to use, nice product. A perfect compliment to a set of carving knives.
I've been using this for roughly 10 years now. It really works great but the thing that makes it work great is the stropping compound that comes with it. The various shapes on this strop are great for your carving chisels. I keep it next to me when carving and use it every 15 - 20 minutes or so to touch up the tool I am using. I love it, but the real advantage to this is the stropping compound.
Perfect for Honing Edges
With compound, provides a razor–sharp edge.
The multi shaped block is weak in design
a safe tool is a sharp tool
Very good in keeping tools sharp and ready to use
I Just got it.
I've just got a chance to use it for the first time and it sharpened my carving tool great.
I use this to keep my Flexicut carving tools nice and sharp. The slip strop shapes are very useful in removing the inner burr. The leather could be a little better quality but over all very effective. Really lengthens the time in between sharpenings.
Best I have seen for gouges
Best I have ever seen for gouges. Leaves it so sharp it will make your mama cry! I even use it for flat chisels. The compound is great and leaves it sharp for a long time!
Necessity for gouges
Has multiple arcs for different size gouges
This strop should be part of the kit for flecut blades it really is good.
The Flexcut slipstrop does a very nice job finishing the sharping of most tools.
Works for me
I thought all the surfaces would be leather but they aren't. However, it fits all my gouges and works well. Clearly worth the money.
Works very well
Keeeps tools sharp
Helps keep chisels wicked sharp.
Periodic stropping will keep chisels sharp enough to give you a wet look in end grain cutting.
Cheap, made in China......
Great product! I purchased a beginner set of carving knives but had nothing but old wet stones to keep them sharp. I hadn't had great success keeping pocket knives sharpened with the stones and didn't want to dull my carving knives worse than they were. I carved several projects while trying to figure out the best product to keep them sharp. Found this product and after a few quick passes with this strop I found immediate results. Easy tool maintenance. Really worth the money. Really glad I purchased and tried this strop. Worry about sharpening my carving knives is gone.
Perfect for V-tools
The best way that I've found to strop V-tools. It does what it's supposed to do.
Sort of OK
The leather clad portions of the strop work well but the profiles don't load up very well with the compound so it's hard to tell if they are working effectively.
Polish carving knives
Great product, I have a Pfeil 12 tool intermediate carving set and found them to be extremely sharp, but after a few quick passes with this strop I found immediate results. Easy tool maintenance. Really worth the money! A definitely worthy product, but I'd like to see it in a 6in. version.
A very necessary tool!!
Good for developing the hands on feel necessary in tool sharpening with "water stones."
Good size for small chisels. Since being a beginner in chisel use, the pre-made shapes on this unit make it easier to use than a flat piece of leather.
makes them sharp every time.
Keep your Flexcut tools factory sharp
I do a lot of wood carving and need to keep my Flexcut gouges sharp. It does a very good job.
As good as it seems
While carving, every 20 minutes or so,I give 4 or 5 passes to the tool I'm using. The great things? Keeps the tools sharpen with very little effort
