Description

Certified as a Master Bladesmith by the American Bladesmith Society, Bob Kramer is one of the only Master Bladesmiths in the world specializing in kitchen cutlery. Put simply, Kramer is King of the Kitchen Knife. As such, Bob Kramer has seen the knife from every angle—as a chef, a professional knife sharpener, and a Master Bladesmith.

Although he is most widely recognized for his blades, Bob is also an expert on sharpening. In that spirit, he has collaborated with Zwilling to create the Kramer by Zwilling sharpening collection.

In order to maximize the performance of any knife, it is very important that the edge be properly cared for. Retooling your knives’ edges by hand may seem daunting to a beginner, but with Kramer’s help many describe the experience as relaxing and gratifying. Keeping your blades sharp not only makes the cook’s most important tool easier to use, sharpening makes knives safer.

Used for centuries in barbershops, the stropping block is the best way to finish the edge of a knife or razor. A stropping block maintains the knife’s edge between sharpening making it a useful and convenient tool to have around.

excellent complement
This really refines the sharpening process for the Kramer sharpening kit. I strongly recommend it.

A must for a good sharpening
Well made and the right size to do the job. Stropping a knife is a must after sharpening it.. A good buy.

Because I need it!!!
In all seriousness, Bob Kramer's stuff is good, real good and it fits in real well with some of his other products that I own.

I am professional chef, and for sharpening process its the best way to polish the edge and make it really keen. It all gets reflected in a better cuting performance.

my knivesare dull
ernest p on Oct 19, 2015
I purchased a Damascus Bob Kramer 8" Chef's Knife and it was the best kitchen tool I've ever purchased so I purchased the Kramer sharpening set and this is to add to that to maintain my new knife at its finest.
Justin E on May 11, 2015
this puts the final polishing edge after you are done using the 10.000 grit stone
James H on Feb 26, 2015
My husband is a professional chef, so I chose these items to help keep his knives in good condition in between professional sharpening.
Martha M on Jan 15, 2015
I watched the video and this was added in addition to a 10,000 grit stone which ultimately wasn't available to purchase after all. I would have bought it, too.
Robert W. G on Dec 16, 2014
it goes with the sharpening kit
NANCY S on Dec 15, 2014

Kramer-Zwillig Stropping Board Attachment

Does the leather stropping board benefit from the use a stropping compound? If yes, is the compound available from Sur La Table?Thanks
A shopper on May 30, 2012
BEST ANSWER: While I am sure it would not hurt anything to use a stropping compound, we unfortunatley to do not currently carry that product. We do have replacement stropping leather however and I have attached that link to this response
What is the size of this strop?
James P on Jan 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: James, I don't have the item in front of me, but my impression is roughly 3" x 7", and it's 1" 3/4 height. Hope this helps.
What is the oz measurement of the leather/ what is the type of leather and quality?
Ari B on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The entire block (wood and leather) is 7 3/4 oz - 222 grams. The leather measures approx. 2 mm. This is an excellent block for long term (proper) home use. Kramer is the Ritz Carlton's + of knives. He designed this particular series to make quality knives more approachable for the higher skilled non-professionals. His sharping stones (including this strapping leather) is the real deal. Everyone defines the word 'big' differently. In which ways are you planning to use this stropping block?
