Great strop I used mine unloaded and it took a few more passes to finish off the edge but it was worth it. Gave a very sharp edge.
This is my favorite substrate for loading my favorite stropping compound,boron carbide paste from HanAmerican. Unfortunately,I only ordered one so I am going to have order another to load with chromium oxide paste.
My current m.o. is to abrade away the burrs with bare and then loaded felt strops/pads and then refine the edge with loaded bovine strops - works a treat!
For the ultimate finish,follow with the bare horse butt strop. But I usually prefer a toothy,fairly ’grabby’ edge so I mostly stop at boron carbide on bovine.

Using this really makes the difference. A couple of strops on this pad really puts the final edge on your blade. I put it on the dia-sharp diamond stone and it works fine.
Works great. use mine with 0.25 micron diamond spray. 5/5
