The final step to a scary sharp and lethal edge.
What is Buffing Compound? It’s a wax crayon with a powdered abrasive grit suspended in the wax. When you deposit the buffing compound on a surface you are also depositing the abrasive grit.
Stroking your blade edge over the buffing compound polishes the cutting edge producing the finest burr you can.
To get a hair splitting edge, cut apart an empty cereal box and rub the buffing compound on the unprinted side of the box. Use your roller guide with a backwards motion to buff the edge to a razor finish.
