Paddle honing strop is used for manual finishing of the cutting edge.
Paddle dimensions: Length: 425 mm Width: 65 mm Thickness: 25 mm The area of the working surface: 65х300 mm
A hand-polishing compound (usually green for different companies) is applied to the suede side. Work either without any compound on the smooth side of the skin, or using a finishing one (white). Working with a paddle strop can bring the knife to razor sharpness.
Be careful not to spoil the cutting edge by turning it to a convex grind. The knife will shave, but it will not cut very well.
