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.

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
