    Default Buying Chromium Oxide

    Hi
    I have been researching the forums, and it seems that the Chromium Oxide from handamerican is the stuff to get.
    My plan is to use it on a paddle leather strop to hone my razor, but which version should I get for this use? The liquid or the dry version?

    Thanks!

    Kull, I got my stick of ChrOx from Straight Razor Designs. I rubbed it on a three inch paddle strop from TI. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. The web site is: www.straightrazordesigns.com

    I too am looking at getting some Chromium Oxide and have been looking closely at the stuff they have a SRD, but my question is how does pasting a paddle stop with the rough leather differ from pasting a strop that has smooth leather. I thought that I read some people have had trouble with the paste clumping when using the TI paste on a TI paddle strop. But of course the Chromium Oxide that SRD has would be a different paste so would react in a different manner at least I would assume.

    I use the CrOx stick from SRD. I've been applying it like a crayon on the rough leather side of my paddle strop.

    When I applied the ChrOx to my paddle strop, I rub it on the entire surface and then with the palm of my hand I rub the entire surface to spread it evenly. If not satisfied with the results, I repeat the process until I get the entire surface evenly covered.
