    Question Leather strop ?

    Can someone explain the process to me please. I have tried but don't see any real results. I used a 2.5" wide old leather work belt from HomeDepot and some chrome wheel polish. I heard you don't even need a compound

    So what's the right way to do this? I am wanting to touch-up some Montec's...
