With diamond paste, you can strop to an exceptionally keen edge quickly and easily.
Simply make a strop from close-grained hardwood or MDF, apply a few drops of paste, and use it as you would a sharpening stone.
Composed of monocrystalline diamond in a mineral oil base, the paste embeds in the surface, abrading quickly but lasting a long time.
Begin with the grit that corresponds to your finest stone and progress to finer paste: 6-micron following a fine stone, 3-micron after the 6-micron paste or an extra-fine stone, and the 1-micron to provide a mirror finish.
Made in the USA, the paste comes in 2 gram syringes and is sold individually or as a set.
