We can also make almost any size. The strops are also available wholesale, contact us for prices.
Do you need some polishing compound? We prefer to use a solid compound that is used in the metal finishing industry. This pink compound is hard and will last you many years. Categorized as a final finish polishing compound there is only one compound that is finer but is double the price. After doing several years of tests we could not really tell of any difference between them, and we use this pink compound on the final stropped edges to all the tools we make and sell as well as our everyday workshop tools. The weight is around the 90 gram mark.
