Full description

This Skerper stropping compound is perfect if you are looking to polish the edges of your knives. When combined with a stropping paddle or shaving belt you will have a powerful tool in hands to turn a blunt knife into a razor-sharp one. The Skerper Stropping Compound comes in different grain sizes. From very coarse to very fine.

Skerper Stropping Compound Grain sizes

  • Grey: coarse (approximately grain 3000)
  • Green: medium (approximately grain 5000)
  • Red: fine (approximately grain 7000)
  • Black: ultra-fine (approximately grain 10.000

Please note: the abovementioned grain sizes are estimates based on our experiences. They give you an indication which grain size you use during a specific part of your sharpening process.

How do you apply a stropping compound?

Before use you need to heat up the strop. You can do so by holding it over a gas flame, or heat it with a blow dryer or paint stripper. Do, however, be careful that you don’t burn the strop or yourself! You should also heat up the compound after which you can spread it out over the compound. Especially when you use the grey (coarse) compound, properly preheating is a must.

With these stropping compounds we recommend the Skerper Viking Stropping Paddle.

Compound is difficult to apply to the strip, clumping rather than spreading. When applied it works okay as an abrasive but no better than that. Strange, as the medium compound seems good...

Comment by Knivesandtools

The strop itself must be warmed before use. This can be done by keeping it above a gas flame or with a hair dryer. Please be careful that you will not burn yourself or the strop while you are doing this! Also the compound must be heated until it becomes supple. Next, apply the compound on the strop, just like a Wasco wax crayon. Especially in the gray (coarse) compound, it is necessary to preheat it really well.
