Polishes and sharpens great
Seems like a good product. A good stropping adds a shiny razor sharp finish to my blades.

Worth every penny
This is the first time I've used the polishing compound with a strop and my chisels have never been sharper. It's ready to use and looks like it will last me years. Worth every penny.

Great strop compound
I use this on my strop for my whittling/carving tools. Works great and allows me to easily maintain a hair shaving level of sharpness.

My opinion about Rockler’s sharpening compound.
It is really good compound, I use it a lot and like it very much!!! And also I strongly recommend it to use always during your sharpening process!

Works Great
First time using a strop and this compound. After watching a few Youtube videos I cut up an old belt and glued it to a wood block. Rubbed the compound on the belt and after sharpening a few knives I ran it over my strop. The honing compound sharpens the knife blade perfectly. Works like a charm!

More good stuff from Rockler
I've been sharpening chisels using a grinder and then sometimes a stone, but recently started using a belt sander. Wow! What a difference it makes to load the back of an old belt with this compound and put the chisel on it for just a few seconds. Polished, honed, stropped, all in one easy step. Great stuff! And Rockler's price is about the lowest around. As always, Rockler shipping is fast and competitive.

Does a good job finishing off your honed edges.

When applied to a plywood disc on a grinding wheel it becomes a great inexpensive way to sharpen knives and tools.

looks like a good fit. I collect Knives but never bought a knife for carving only. Figured the stone may be different from the ones I use. Plus the price looked good is there a special oil you would recommend. Bill Kellar

Is this pure chromium oxide, or a mixture? How many micron are the particles?
John B on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi John, this is a mixture: Aluminum/Chromium oxide. The particles are 0.5 micron.
Is it made from animal fat?
