This 70 gram tube of high quality Honing Paste has been specially formulated to gently remove burrs and polish the cutting edges of knives, chisels, axes or plane irons, or in fact any tool that requires a razor sharp cutting edge. You can even use a little of the honing paste, applied to your finger, to gently rub away any small rust spots that may appear on your cutting tools, and also gently remove the stains that are formed when cutting into certain high tannin woods, such as Sweet Chestnut
How to Use Honing Paste
Smear a little honing paste into the surface of your leather strop, in an even thin coat, less is required than you might imagine. By trailing the cutting edge of your knife, chisel or Plane Iron etc., back and forth, along the strop, using minimal pressure, you will achieve a polished razor edge in a fraction of the time it would have taken without honing paste. Each application of honing paste should last for several sharpening sessions and you will see that it is working because the paste will start to darken as the metal from your knife is polished away. Once you have carefully wiped away any excess honing paste from your knife, chisel etc., so as not to contaminate the uncharged side of your strop, you can use the uncharged side of the strop to give the cutting edge a final little polish.
Please Note: We at Shark Designs/Beaver Bushcraft advise that you ignore the instructions printed on the Honing Paste tube, which recommends that you apply light machine oil to the leather, before you apply the honing paste. Whilst this does allow deeper penetration of the honing paste it will dramatically darken the leather and will make the strop slightly sticky, which will attract unwanted contaminants to the surface of the strop, thereby shortening the life of your strop. The oil may also penetrate to the other side of the strop especially on the Field Razor Strop (Basic & Deluxe) models. We do recommend that you apply the Honing Paste as described above.
