hey everyone,

So i bought a straight razor from an old store. There was already a nice dustcollection on top of it so I got a fair price.

Inside of the case, with the razor, was a tube (25ml or so, small) with a darkgreen paste in it. The tube is white with a green band in the same color as the paste inside of it. Is the paste used for something or gave the store it for free because they didn't have a clue what they were selling...

thx already for any response.

Hmm maybe chromium oxide. A lot of people use it to refresh the edge of a straight between honing.

Did it look like the tube on the left? If so, it's Dovo's version of Chromium Oxide paste. It can be used to help sharpen and maintain the edge of the blade after honing. It is often applied to a balsa plank, the cotton component of a strop, or sometimes to the leather component of a strop (but only if you have another leather strop that is not pasted). Good luck on your straight razor journey!
