Our ULTRA-Rock Hard Felt Deburring/Stropping Pad is designed to give the ultimate in burr removal specifically to Japanese knives when used in conjunction with our Hard Felt DeBurring Block. If loaded with our Diamond Honing/Stropping Spray a very bitey/crisp edge can be easily achieved.
This pad is to be used after each and every sharpening stone you employ!
The proper use would be to strop the knife's edge at a slightly increased angle (maybe 1-2 degrees higher of an angle than what you're sharpening at) while using strong downward pressure. This action, along with the natural properties of this ULTRA-Rock Hard Felt Pad will draw the burrs away from and off of the cutting edge.
Used along with our Rock Hard Felt Block you will be able to remove even the toughest most stubborn burrs in no time at all leaving a crisp clean edge behind.
The steps to success in using our felt deburring system would be:
1. Slice into the Rock Hard Felt Block
2. Strop on the ULTRA-Rock Hard Felt Pad (both sides of the knife)
3. Slice into the Rock Hard Felt Block
4. Strop on the ULTRA-Rock Hard Felt Pad (both sides of the knife)
I've tested and used many types of hard felt in the past and I can tell you that none compare to our ULTRA-Rock Hard version in regards to deburring, draw, and wear. This is a premium hard to find natural wool product imported from India. In searching I can not find an equal.
This pad can be charged (loaded) with our diamond spray to use as a final finish strop. Used in this manner the pad will provide crisp clean bitey edges. This is the perfect replacement for stropping on leather. Can also be charged with chromium oxide powder.
Our ULTRA-Rock Hard Felt Pad will not roll or dub a knife's edge due to it's heavily compacted surface, there's just simply no give at all in this pad. Use with confidence!
Sizes - 11" x 3" x 1/8"
