Rickís White Lightniní
is the best acting and easiest applying stropping compound that we have been
able to find. It is a non
allergenic cream compound, that sticks to a hand or power strop readily and
is easily smoothed on with a finger. The
abrasive grit is aluminum oxide, and the fluid is acidic acid (vinegar).
Nothing toxic here! It
comes in a one fluid ounce plastic jar which should last the hand strop user
several years. (If it gets hard
from leaving the lid off (!), just stir in some vinegar.
It might be a little lumpy, but it will work fine.)
This product makes truly razor sharp edges not only possible, but
usual. That is important,
because, if you canít shave with it, you canít carve with it.
