Re: strop only uni "yellowcake" & leather question

Bill got it - there's three sizes of that at mcmaster.

I used horse butt smooth side out, but it's been used so much and scraped off so many times and has enough oil in it that it's pretty soft.

I would think bovine leather either way would be more like what it is now (hair or body side) as it's lost that hardness and tooth that the hair side of butt strip typically has.
