    I purchased some GP-Pro premixed cream with a particle size of 2.3 micron. It does help, but I like to finish using even finer (0.50, 0.25, and 0.10 micron) Cubic Boron Nitride.

    If you want to out the abrasive on leather, I would suggest that you purchase a piece of leather from your local hobby store rather than putting it on your hanging strop. Putting it on felt is another option.
    RayClem....I have ordered both CeO powder and CBN spray. I have a number
    of leather and felt pieces. My intention is to try a variety of combinations, and see which I like best.

    Ultimately, I'd like to put together a couple of full-size strops for regular use.

    Thank you for your advise.
