Great quality and great value.
Cut into two pieces 3in by 12 in. Glued rough side on one side of 3 in by 12 in board and smooth side on other. I use it for honing knives and it works great. Very high quality leather.
Gets my blades and chisels mirorlike smooth.
Great Piece of Leather
I bought this piece of leather to make my own strops for sharpening my bushcraft and survival knives. The piece was plenty big enough to make several strops of various sizes. I purchased a 2 oz. bottle of Gorilla Glue to adhere it to the wood bases--worked perfectly!
Perfect for honing tools.
The leather came flat not rolled up like in the picture which was my main concern. Enough to make a nice size hone of your own. Good for what I wanted it for!
Leather Strops Keep You Sharp!
I cut into 11/2" wide strips and glued a smooth and textured side to both sides of a shaped wooden handle to make great honing strops for woodworking tools and knives. Enough material for over 4 such strops. Quality leather with unblemished surface and easy to work with. The textured side needed a few brushes with an edge to raise the leather to readily hold sharpening compound. You with enjoy how it greatly improves the final product of any sharpening project.
