View Full Version : Strop material

Hey guys. Since the strop question has come up I've been wondering which you guys prefer. Leather or Balsa. Which would you say works better with which compound? I only use leather loaded with Chromium Oxide but have been thinking about adding in another strop and paste.

Leather...... but I'm picky about which leather.

I hate to sound like Dave's minion BUT I've tried about a dozen leather substrates and I grudgingly keep on coming back to Dave's. :bashhead:
