15 minutes video of stropping with excessive pressure and blind-folded (for 1 out of 3 knives). Thanks for watching.

I don't like strop but it can be easy to use or does it? Talking about hold the angle, a single atomic mass pressure otherwise your edge will end up as rounded and or overly-convexed and or dulled and or wire. So I created sub-micron diamond stones and mostly edge-leading stroke to produce sharp & clean apex. OK so, it's worked well for me but not too useful for the rest of people
For 2 months, I've been looking/r&d for ONE/SINGLE/GRAIL strop with the following attributes:
* Sharp: clean shave (facial hairs), smooth diagonal slice newsprint, push-cut printer paper all directions, durable
* No rounding/convexing/dulling the edge up to 2.2lbs (1Kg) pressure - pardon my use the weight unit instead of SI (pascal)
* Sharpen/touchup/polish creates 99.9% free of burr/wire that affect performance
* Work for all carbon and most stainless steels (including high-alloy such as s90v)
* Durable edge
* Almost mirror finish
* Inexpensive : less than $10 total strop life cost (assembly & operate). WAG life worth - 10K uses on average (excluded knuts).
* Super easy to use
