It is primarily chromium oxide admixed with other fine abrasives to give the best combination of cutting speed and fine finish. The bonding is formulated for ease of charging. It will adhere equally well to felt, leather, or wood.
Cuts quickly but leaves a mirror finish with a light wax film. Ideal for carving tools and firmer gouges, it can be used for final honing of almost any tool. Also used with a felt wheel or leather belt for power honing or with a leather strop for hand honing
