Best knife stropping compound?

Postby Mad Medic » Fri Jul 07, 2017 5:55 pm

Ladies & gents advice required please, I want to try using a leather strop to dress the edges back up on my edged impliments. Any suggestions as to a good stropping compound which can be brought in the UK?

Thanks in advance MM.

Have a google for Starkie Blue. I use it with my strop to get a nice shiny (and hair-popping sharp) edge.

Just about to humbly apologise to Woodsman1 having looked around at Starkey Blue and found it called "Smurf Poo." But in my defence slightly more of a clue would have been a tad helpful? :?:
