    I'm running a group buy for stropping/de-burring felt. This is for the good stuff, real good stuff, from India that I used to sell years ago.

    Here's the details if you're interested....

    Features
    : ULTRA-Rock Hard Felt De-Burring Pad


    Our ULTRA-Rock Hard Felt Deburring Pad is designed to give the ultimate in burr removal specifically to Japanese knives when used in conjunction with our Hard Felt DeBurring Block.

    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 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. Click HERE to see a trick to applying chromium oxide to felt pads.

    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"

    *Please note - Some imperfections or variations may appear in the surface of pad. This is normal and perfectly OK as this is a natural material.

    Features: Hard Felt De-Burring Block

    Our Hard Felt Deburring Block is designed to give the ultimate in burr removal specifically to Japanese knives when used in conjunction with our ULTRA-Rock Hard Felt DeBurring Pad.

    This block is to be used after each and every sharpening stone you employ!

    The proper use would be to slice into a corner of the block and run the knife's edge through from heal to tip. This action will allow the felt to draw burrs away and off of the cutting edge. Used along with our ULTRA-Rock Hard Felt Pad you will be able to remove even the toughest most stubborn burrs in no time at all leaving a crisp clean edge behind.

    This is a premium hard to find natural wool product imported from India.

    This simple felt block has become one of, if not the most, significant advancements in deburring Japanese knives that I've experienced since I began sharpening them. I couldn't imagine sharpening without one.


    *Please note - Some imperfections or variations may appear in the surface of pad. This is normal and perfectly OK as this is a natural material.

    I use the felt de-burring block on every knife I sharpen no matter how I finish the edge. I've found nothing that strips away loose burrs like these things do. Just makes for getting to a clean edge so much faster.
