Chromox finishing paste is recommended for use after sharpening with extra-fine diamond grits 0.50 or 0.25 microns. It is also suitable for use after super-fine hones, such as Shapton 16,000 or 30,000 grits, Chinese 12,000 grits, or select Belgian Coticule stones.
The edge-smoothing compound, when properly used on a paddle or hanging-strop, smoothes or takes the "bite" out of a very sharp, aggressive edge.
Important: the chromium oxide paste must fill the pores in your strop; you don't want it to coat the surface. Before first use, with your fingers, rub in a generous amount of paste to completely cover the surface and fill all voids. Then, with a paper towel, wipe all the excess paste off the surface. When you are getting only a trace of lapping paste on your towel, your strop is ready for use. Before applying the chromium oxide paste, you should always stir it well, to avoid settling of the chromium oxide particles in the mixture. We recommend that you stir with a small piece of wood and then wipe this piece on the strop to be covered, so as to avoid wastage.
Note: Paste only fills half container. This is normal.
