Do these have a different surface than the ones they make for razors?

Surface is the same as on Razor strops it is just on some wooden base

This would be very good for new straight razor users also, takes some of the strop issues out of the equation.

Wouldn't this be a little too smooth for knives?

I think no, i like the feeling of it on knives and on Razors. But you know there is many tastes in leather as it is in stones and knives ;)

Alright, I'll bite. Maxim, why do you like this leather over other leathers? I'm a complete noob at knowing the differences between different strops.

It just feels more smooth and finer then all other leather i ever tried and it stays that way for a very long time.
