The SHARPAL 209H Green Buffing Compound is ideal for a medium to fine polish.

Note the sticks look much bigger on the web page than they do in person. They come as pair of 2 oz sticks which makes them about 3" long each but don't worry, this product makes up in performance for what it lacks in size.
I use this primarily for hand stropping knives after sharpening: just apply a few strokes of compound to the leather strop to load up, and then a dozen light strokes with the blade leaves a silky-smooth, polished edge with a light, protective wax finish.
The blocks themselves are about 2.5" x .5" x .5" which is perfect for hand work - if you're using a machine buffing wheel you'll probably want a bigger size.
The honing compound is a good variety. Green compound is a useful sharpening compound that works well.
The strop smells a bit strongly of glue when the package is first opened but that dissipated quickly. The strop is sturdy and the non-skid stops on the bottom are a bonus for me, as it keeps the strop stable& steady as I move the knife and sharpen it.
I haven't used the angle guide but think that will come in handy. I'll try it out soon.
When I coated my leather strop and began honing my tools, I noticed the Sharpal compound did not gum up like other, cheaper brands.

It is, in effect, a piece of leather bonded to wood so by all means make you’re own if you want to source the materials and fit them in a way that guarantees non movement. You’ll probably find that, like me, even if you can do that, it will cost you about as much as just buying this one on Amazon.
I find it works really well, polishes my expensive kitchen knives up real nice as long as they are already sharp. You could probably sharpen a blunt knife on it but I would suggest using a steel, wet stone or wheel grinder to do that, then use the strop after daily use to keep the knife in top condition.
I wouldn’t recommend it for an axe or garden tools, it’s size means that it struggles to accommodate a carving knife so longer or heavier blades would be a real problem. Best use a grinding pebble and belt strop.
Overall, no reason to hesitate, can’t beat the price for compound and strop and works as well as any other leather on wood I imagine.
Also the thickness and the sheerness is just as I thought it would be.
Of course there is definitely a technique to it, but even my 'beginners' effort produced a stunning result without a lot of effort, I was really impressed.
I had seen people make their own bot for what I consider a pittance, why bother, plus you get the compound and angle guide too.
Along with the diamond stone, it actually makes sharpening a pleasure and not a chore.
SHARPEL seem to me to be one of if not the best manufacturers in the sharpening world, I am so glad I discovered them as a brand.
Worth 5 stars all day long !
