New to sharpening, bought Ryky's stones, beautiful Kato 240mm Gyuto, Buffalo STrop and this. I am an extremely happy customer, great products, fast delivery... I will be back.
As for the Diamond Green paste... I find it too wet, covering the strip with a very thin translucent layer, it remains wet for over a day and if you strop when wet, most of the paste ends up on the knife within a couple of strokes.
I have much better results with the wax bar and a drop or two on mineral (baby) oil to smooth and level the wax surface.
Maybe if I cleaned and dried my strop and used much less paste it would be fine, maybe it my fault. will look for a video see if it is something I am doing wrong.
Ivan, thank you for your honest review of the stropping compound. The formula was made, as is, due to the feedback Ryky got from months of testing. Lots of customers have complained that stropping compounds from various makers dried too quickly and would gunk up the stropping after just one or two uses. As a diamond compound, you do not need to “load” the stropping surface as you would with traditional stropping paste. Again, thank you, for supporting what we do.
Should have just gotten the highest grit only.
