So what stropping materials do you find work best with what levels of compound/type of compound? Not what substrates do you prefer overall, but how do you use them together?
Mainly, I'm interested in seeing if anyone prefers to do, say, 1 micron paste/spray on balsa and .25 and smaller on leather. Or something like that.
Anyone use a particular substrate for finishing to beginning stropping?
I'm thinking that leather might be a good substrate to use for the last compound, since it gives good feedback(which I get almost NONE of by the .5 level if I do my knives right) and does a bit of help blending off those imperfections.
