    The strop strap thst your making is a good strop but to make it better find a piece of cotton webbing and glue it to the other side if you use the cotton webbing first it will make the leather side easier to use and you’ll get a better edge on the item your sharping. An added bonus if you use a polishing compound like Simi chrome on both the leather and the cotton webbing it polishes the blade for less resistance when cutting and it stays sharper lonnger. To tune up the blade use the leather side a couple of swipes and your back to the razor sharp blade.
