*Do NOT spray this leather pad with the 0.25 mic Dupont diamond spray that we previously sold as this will cause damage. The new 1mic Dupont diamond spray is designed to work with this leather pad.
Lacewood Bench Hone/Strop - 10"x3" - by PhoenixKnifeHouse
Provided is a very beautiful Lacewood platform/base that comes with rubber feet for sure grip, magnetic material attached for pad interchangeability, and a metal backed textured leather pad.
The leather has a very strong draw (or pull) to it that I like especially for western style double bevel Japanese knives. It will work fine as is but works flat out incredible with a couple of coatings of our 1mic Dupont diamond honing spray applied.
This leather pad is very thin and not easily deformed through depression which means it is very difficult to round edges while using it and it's just resilient enough to where it's resistant to being easily cut.
The base is made of Lacewood and I think the pictures speak for themselves here. I could see this as being the first bench hone that is allowed to sit out on the counter at home (wife friendly).
Base is topped with magnetic material. Pads are backed with steel. Pads can be replaced as needed.
*Note - Felt deburring pads are available with steel backing in this 10"x3' size. Replacement leather pads are also available.
**Please also note that this product is made from natural materials and as such will not necessarily all look alike, will have slight variations in shade/texture, and may not exactly resemble the picture shown in the listing. We can not pick a specific base or leather pad for you.
This is a really nice set up, you won't be disappointed with this one.

First I'll admit that I was a bit of a skeptic about the new diamond spray+
leather, but after using it I've become a believer. My edges do feel grabbier
after stropping on the new setup, as compared to the CrO on smooth that I was
using before, and the leather really does show where the burrs are.
