    Sorry should have been more specific. It's Woodstock D2902 1-Pound Extra Fine Buffing Compound, Green

    I personally would not put my razor anywhere near it.

    As for the refreshing, not sure what green chalk is?

    Buffing compounds tend to be a combination of materials, and that quotes 400 to 600 grit, if thats on a par with stone grit, then firstly I would say that range is to far a variable for a straight razor and the grit even at the higher end will give a harsh edge.

    You're really looking for something like a chromium oxcide powder or paste. Or a 0.5micron diamond spray to refresh an edge.

    As a marker, I personally wouldn't shave with a razor honed on amything lower than an 8000 grit hone.

    Can you recommend a 0.5micron diamond spray?

    I am not endorsing this as I haven't used this one. But this is the kinda thing you're looking for.

    Probably the cheapest quality crox is from kremmer pigments. 100g is a massive amount.

    Chrome Oxide Green | Kremer Pigmente GmbH & Co.KG

    You simply mix with a few drops of baby oil.

    Have never used amazon. Ebay would be easy as there's a guy in England sells small bags of the kremmer stuff. Maybe someone else can post a link if they know of something.

    Had a quick look and found these but not the cheapest.

    Cant tell. What we use for razors is graded to 99 percent pure and to .5 micron size of particles. It's easy to find in high purity but hard to find in the right size. Unless it specifies both purity and size its a gamble.

    If you can get the msds for them check the specs but is unlikely most will supply.
