These are my leather strops for keeping an edge on the carving chisels that I own. They are made from an article which appeared in Australian Woodsmith Magazine. All that remains is to load them with cutting compound. The set of four strops have in total eight radii which will accommodate all the chisels that I have. I should make a video of the strops in action.

The article from Australian Woodsmith magazine Issue 126 is an excellent article on sharpening carving chisels. There is in depth coverage on most types of carving chisels and how to keep them sharp.
