This honing compound can be used on leather, wood or synthetic strops. The waxy consistency makes it easy to apply the compound. This fine chromium oxide and aluminum oxide abrasive is used when you want a polished honed edge on your tools. 6 oz. bar. Made in the USA.
Stropping a tool or knife is one of the least understood and least appreciated ways to perfect your blade edge. After sharpening your knife on a stone, stropping will enhance the edge quickly and easily. I like using the green honing compound because it will put a true mirror polish on your blade, and do it quickly.
