Hold the bevel against the surface of the strop with light pressure and move the blade away from the cutting edge.
Turn the blade over and do the same on the other side.
The process is the same on any stropping surface, with or without a honing compound.
Never move the blade toward the cutting edge as it will cut into the strop, resulting in dulling of the edge and damage to the strop.
A few strokes are usually sufficient
A strop is recommended to be used before you even think your edge is dull.
Used consistently, it is a key step in maintaining a razor sharp edge.
