French Leather Strop with 50 Gram Jar French Green Chromium Oxide Extra-Fine Paste 107222
This is a set containing a French 2-sided leather strop and a 50 gram jar of extra-fine French Green Chromium Oxide extra-fine stropping paste.
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". Made in France.
STROPPING PASTE DETAILS: This extra-fine polishing compound is made in France and is the finest available anywhere. This paste can not only be used on all types of strops, but with felt and leather polishing wheels. One of the great advantages of this paste is that it does not have liquid oil as a major component and hence does not "run" all over the place when in storage or in use. The primary ingredient is Chromium Oxide which is an extremely hard mineral abrasive with a Mohs hardness of 8.5 to 9. For comparison, diamond has a Mohs hardness of 10. It is graded at just 0.3 microns or 60,000 grit. Only the smallest amount of paste is required to cover a large area of leather, so this 50 gram jar will last a very long time with normal use.
