Re: Is chromium oxide honing compound still releva

William Duffield
That's what I use. Note that the url is a bit misleading. It is 0.3 micron.

As I said in the other thread, I mix it with mineral oil and stuff it in a Monoject 412 syringe (available through Lee Valley) and apply it to a horse butt strop from TFWW. That little tin is a lifetime supply if you are just using it for honing plane blades and chisels.

I think the Cr2O3 in the green stick from Lee Valley is 9 microns (30 times as coarse), and is mixed with Al2O3.
