Why not?

It's backed with a surprisingly strong magnet and it hasn't ever fallen. It's handy and a good conversation starter. Sometime I use it to hold up my grocery list.

I stick my strops to the side of my fridge. The front is curved.

Ha, I though I was the only one who did that!

I read that "And I personally keep my strop stuck IN the fridge" :lol:

Oh, haha, yes, that would be a good reason to ask why.

I had a curved front refrigerator once. An old Frigidaire that I liberated out of an abandoned building at work. Pink interior with a hand brushed chocolate brown exterior. A real treat for the eyes.

I ended up giving it to a bunch of enlisted kids, along with a waterbed and a sofa/love seat combo adorned in electric blue with white stripe velour. Classic, yet restrained.

These days that fridge would probably bring mad cash from some hipster.

Can you strop the knife too much? To the point where you are hurting it? When the first got the knife I did the tomato slicing trick that is shown in the video on the product page. So it was very sharp out of the box. After using it a bunch over the last two days I went to do the tomato slicing trick and it didn't work as well so I stropped it. Sure enough it went back to its OOTB sharpness.

I stropped on the Balsa with the 3 micron paste, 10 times on the one side, then 10 on the other, then 5 on the one side, then 5 on the other, then 4, 3, 2, 1. Then I did 5,4,3,2,1 on each side on the horse leather.

That obviously worked very well as I could do that tomato slicing demonstration afterwards, but as I was doing it I was wondering if I could be doing any harm to the knife.

Thanks for the help as this is all new to me. I am really enjoying stropping though. Can't wait to get to sharpening!

Just speaking in general if you were applying really heavy pressure and using a harder type leather strop then you could round off your edge.
