French 2-Sided 3" x 10" Leather Strop with 1.2oz Chromium Oxide 0.5 Micron Polishing Compound Bar
This is a set containing a French 2-sided leather strop and a 1.2 ounce bar of extra-fine Green Chromium Oxide extra-fine stropping compound.
STROP DETAILS: This 2-sided leather strop is the premier tool for putting the final edge on knives and other edge tools. It will put a wicked sharp edge on tools after sharpening on your finest stone. This paddle strop has one suede and one smooth side. The suede side is gold colored split leather, slightly tufted and the perfect leather to be charged with honing paste. The reverse side is brown prime leather that is extra smooth and excellent for final sharpening. The smooth side can be used with or without fine paste. The leather stropping surface is 10" by 3". The wood base is made from lacquered European Beech with a contoured handle for a secure grip. Overall length is 16 inches. Made in France.
GREEN CHROMIUM OXIDE MICRO FINE POLISHING COMPOUND: This Micro Fine Chromium Oxide polishing compound is specially designed for use with leather strops to put a scary sharp, polished, mirror-edge on knives, carving chisels and woodworking tools. Rather than removing metal, stropping with chromium oxide compound, polishes and refines the cutting edge. The waxy consistency allows it to adhere well to any substrate without powdering. Simply rub the bar evenly on the surface like a crayon. A little goes a very long way, so this small bar will last for a very long time. After applying compound to a strop, polish your knives and blades to a mirror, razor sharp finish. To achieve the best possible edge, finish honing by polishing your edge on raw leather. This compound is micro fine with a 0.5 micron particle size and will produce an edge equivalent to 60,000 grit. Chromium Oxide (Cr2O3) is a superfine, polycrystalline abrasive, it is the mineral that gives green polishing compound its color.
