We felt there was a void in the market for a quick, inexpensive and effective sharpening technique so we thought we would make it EASY-TO FIND by assembling float glass, wet/dry sandpaper, a real-leather strop and aluminum oxide. The gritty surface of the wet/dry sandpaper holds the leather in place while you polish your blades.

Depending on the amount of honing that is required you will need to replace the wet/dry sandpaper after each use or every couple of uses. This can be used either wet or dry (always be cautious of the amount of heat you create while running your cutting edge across the paper). The container of aluminum oxide should last most of one lifetime;a little bit goes a long way.
