    Default A couple of strops I picked up

    Both of these strops were bought a few years ago at an antique store and I somehow managed to forget I had them almost immediately.
    First is a Geo Worthington branded Clearcut strop.It has two leather complaints, one normal and the other branded for sharpening paste. Overall in excellent condition other than needing a little cleanup and flattening.

    The second strop is another Clearcut strop, this one with and Alaskan Seal stamp. If it wasn't for the horrible 1/4" cut in the side, it would be in great shape as well.

    I had bought them and then moved a few weeks later. I just now found the box in my storage that happened to have these and my c-nat.

    Treat the leather with Ballistol! It just works. Check it out at Ballistol.com

    The Alaskan Seal strop has been treated with some neatsfoot oil already, but I'll have to try some Ballistol on the Worthington. Thank you for the suggestion!
