Very sorry someone responded to an older posting and moved this old post to the top listing
I have a newer post please check
Thanks Randy. Hello I have a few strops to sell. I was commissioned to make these. Some of the businesses I normally deal with have gone out of business. I have been hanging on to some of the orders. But tomorrow never comes. I have been systematically selling these off the past few months. These strops were ordered this way.
I have a 16.5x4 12 oz English Leather rolled shaved to tolerance Poly Base non skid backing.The edges have been chamfered and burnished. Hand firm light very smooth draw. Great feedback.
$63.00 plus shipping .
10.5x3.5 Kangaroo Tail very fibrous. Quarter sawn Oak base non skid backing . Hand firm light draw Roo Tail is a different experience. Very kinetic My most wicked edges have come from Roo Tail. $38.00 plus shipping
9.5x3.5 10 oz Horse Butt rolled shaved to tolerance. Quarter sawn Oak base chamfered and burnished edges. Hand firm light draw great feedback. $28.00 plus shipping
All shipping is conus.
I suggest a 1 micron Poly Diamond application for these strops. that I will apply if requested.
To save some time and leg work. I will sell all three for $120.00 shipped conus.
If you are interested send me a PM

Looking good! If I had extra funds atm I'd buy one. I'm like a loan shark that needs to do some collecting...

Do you have any hanging strops by chance? I know you have your system your working. Not sure if you just did paddle or not.

At one time I made many hanging strops. Leather and Hemp. I bought 300 ft of Hemp Fire hose at a municipal auction. It was like new condition. Great stuff. It is a lot harder to come by these days. I used every inch.

The Roo Tail strop has been sold.
The English Leather is still available . This is premium leather. Hand firm light draw works best with 1micron. For a nasty edge.
The small Horse Butt still available very nice premium leather. Works best with 1 micron. Hand firm light draw.
