Strop Paste for Sharpening

Is It Something I Need?

Strop compound is an extremely fine abrasive used in the final polishing stages of sharpening.

These abrasives are sometimes loose, but are usually held in a medium like a wax bar, a paste or a spray. The particles in our selection of compounds range from 15 microns, roughly equivalent to a 1000 grit water stone, down to 0.5 micron, or about 60,000 grit. Various materials are used for the abrasive particles such as aluminium oxide, chromium oxide and diamonds.
