    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.

    Love it!

    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.

    Works 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!

    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.

    Helps keep chisels wicked sharp.

    Periodic stropping will keep chisels sharp enough to give you a wet look in end grain cutting.

    Great Product

    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.

    Great Product

    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

    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.

    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
