Red Medium Stropping Paste in a Tube

The Red Paste from Herold - Solingen is their medium grit stropping paste. With abrasive particles in the 2-4 micron range, it is finer than the Green Paste and gives a near mirror finish. It is great for bringing an edge that has just begun to dull back to sharpness. Follow the Red Paste with stropping on plain leather to finish the job. Or, if you have the HS501 Red/Black Stick Paste Pack, use the Black Paste in between the Red and the plain leather for the smoothest of transitions.

Make Dedicated Grit Strops

This is the same grit as the stick paste that comes in the HS501 Red/Black Stick Paste Pack. Like the stick pastes, the tube pastes are perfect for use with strops like the HS152RI to make dedicated grit strops. This is the same grit that is pre-loaded on the HS56RI Adjustable Strop.

Q. Do I need to use a Stropping Paste on my strop?

A. Not necessarily. Day to day maintenance stropping is typically done on plain leather or linen. You may apply a treatment paste like the Yellow Leather Treatment Strop Paste or the White Linen Treatment Strop Paste to these to maintain them in best condition. Abrasive pastes like the Green, Red or Black, however, are used less frequently than plain leather to bring edges back to a high state of sharpness when they begin to dull.

Thanks John, I am so glad to be working with people who know their products and how to use them. You have a very informative and well laid out website and I learned a lot. It was a rainy Sunday and I watched every video and read through each article. The information you provided was very helpful in teaching technique and helping me decide what to buy. Also your products are so well thought out, that no matter what stone you prefer (oil, water or diamond), there is a nice package available for a beginner. All of the products you put together each had their own advantages and believe me, each one spent some time in the shopping cart until I made my final decision.
