Welcome to StropMan.com
Strops handcrafted right here in the U.S.A. by a knife enthusiast for knife enthusiasts. Our strops are for the final sharpening, polishing, and maintaining of blades. Each strop is made with the natural materials of wood and leather, so while no two are exactly identical consistency is our goal. We work very hard to ensure they are of the highest quality and best value. You can be sure we are always striving to build the next strop better than the one before. Having now handmade, sold and shipped almost 5000 strops (at last count) that are being used in all 50 States, and more than 60 countries we are getting pretty good at it!
You can also find our Ebay store at http://stores.ebay.com/stropman or under StropMan.USA (our new Ebay user ID). If you have time and would like to help us spread the StropMan name please like our fan page on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/StropMan.USA or any other way you like... even old fashioned word of mouth!
VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE : Please read the current StropMan status (updated Dec.4, 2013)... strop shop news, inventory note, 4 free shipping exceptions, and international shipping costs / procedure at the bottom of this page.

Thanks for your interest in our strops and stop by again soon. We really appreciate each and every one of our customers, past, present those to come. With our government bent on stepping on our Second Amendment rights they have yet to tell us how sharp our blades can be! Remember to"get sharp... StropMan!" or "get sharper, stay sharper... StropMan!" Either way you get the point (pun intended). Please feel free to use the contact us page if you have questions or need some help.
IMPORTANT NOTICE : StropMan status (updated Dec.4, 2013). It was well over a year ago when we moved from West Texas and fired up the full time Mississippi "strop factory" June 18th, 2012. What a year! We stayed up with demand the best we could until recently. It has become impossible (so many awesome customers) to keep up our 24 to 48 hour shipping promise. There have been many 6.5 day weeks and plenty 18 hr days so I think we found our limit!
We ship orders in the order they are received and are now trying to keep inventory at the just in time state (partially finished) in order to react to specific demand. Inventory will be added if we catch up but most orders will be made to order as placed with current handling at about 3 to 5 days . Placing your order will put your name on the list. If you have trouble ordering the strop you are after please contact me. I can invoice you directly for it, put your name on the order list and work it into the "strop shop production line".
2 for $5 compounds when added at the same time as a two sided strop so be sure to take advantage of that. The Billy, 4Stroke, and Big Boy ship with 3 or 4 compounds.
Paracord color options now available if you want to upgrade the standard black handle cord they come with. Click the enlarge picture button on a particular strop to see the cord colors. Fun for us, cool option for you, check it out.
SHIPPING - All items ship free in the U.S. except the 4Stroke, Super, Big Boy and the NoMomma strops.
International shipping - USPS rates went up again on Jan. 27th. International customers: please contact me for international postage quotes. If you are outside the U.S. and decide to order here on StropMan I will need to send an invoice directly to you thru paypal so just contact me. We have shipped to well over 60 different countries now with good success so please ask.
