Not happy with how the plain etch holds up...whats your guys go to??

Also how do I make/acquire a leather strop(sp?)

Has anyone tried to sew a leather strap into a belt and put it on a grinder?

Amazon has leather belts for belt grinders. The have normal leather sharpening strops too. If you have an old leather belt, like for pants, you can glue that to a flat board, and it will work fine as well, i bet.

A cheaper alternative to a 2x72 leather belt, is cork and buffing compound.
