The Nano Strop is meticulously designed for extended sharpening strokes, delivering enhanced precision and control with fewer transitions. This versatile tool features a Tiger Wood handle positioned beneath the frame, offering a comfortable and natural grip. Whether you prefer hand-held use, similar to a traditional steel, or utilizing it as a fixed sharpening stone by placing it on your sink or counter, the Nano-Strop accommodates your needs seamlessly.
What truly sets this tool apart is its minimal point load, ensuring that your edges maintain their integrity over time, without deformation. It's a multifaceted solution, suitable for both wet and dry usage, serving as an exceptional edge maintenance tool. Available in two lengths: 475mm and 270mm.
Now, you might wonder if the Nano-Strop is just another sharpening steel. Not at all. Its 3/4-inch width and flat design offer a significant advantage over traditional steel tools. This design spreads the load point across a broader section of the edge, in stark contrast to the high load point associated with round steels, which tend to deform the edge unevenly. With the Nano Strop, you can expect to maintain the overall edge profile consistently over time, thanks to its distributed load point.
The Honeycomb Matrix features a robust yet slightly hydrophilic binder, accommodating both dry and water-assisted sharpening. Flattening is a breeze with Nano Hone's Chevron Style NL-4 Lapping Plate. It's crucial to note that during flattening, you're effectively "kicking" the diamonds out of the resin, resulting in the need for a robust lapping plate (stone fixer).
