We get some strops that have superficial flaws in them- stains or cracks in the leather. This doesn't affect the use but we'll still take 50% off!

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 its 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".

Tried stropping after my cuticule blue stone. Works good.

I need to get another and load that with compound.

Thanks CKTG.

I have both bovine and these horse leather strops. The horse leather is much smoother on the blade edge. I bought two of them with very minor stains,nothing at all the affects the strop ability of the leather.
