Horse butt offers several advantages over cow leather for strops. The tight grain structure and minimal fat allow for the type of processing that enhances the ability of the hide to affect blade steel. While bovine does not lend itself to the same type of processing as horse butt a good bark tanned hide will work well with either dry or wet (paste) compounds . Some bovine may work well on itís own without compound - itís a good thing to try while the leather is new and clean. A smooth surface isnít as important as one might think, a little character in the grain actually helps. What you have after processing horse is a relatively flat honing surface with a tight, accentuated top grain.

This strop pad is magnetic backed and measures 11" x 3".

Smells good! Nice feel to it, quality leather for sure. Used only for clean/final stropping, so far it's held up.

Bought this strop for two purposes, first to maintain my Carter White steel straight razor and two to complement the Hand American honing rod in maintaining my kitchen knives. This strop is awesome! It works great on my straight razor and is very effective in maintaining my edges on my kitchen knives. I definitely agree with the other reviews that it makes a great unloaded final strop.

Really outstanding strop. Given 4 stars only because I live in a humid environment and the corners have started to curl slightly from the humidity alone. Magnet is effective at keeping the piece secure on a base.
