    Default Strop project started

    I ordered ten meters of 3" linen material from England (in the other thread) and contacted my long time buddy Bill. Bill is a very accomplished leather worker. He has a business making mostly gun holsters and knife sheaths. I asked him if he has ever made strops. He had not, but I sent him some pictures of the very nice ones posted on here and he is up for the challenge. He is now doing some research and making phone calls for some horse leather. I'll post pictures of some of the progress as things come together.

    Based on some of your other work i'm sure they will turn out great. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    The linen has shipped. We decided to go with veggy tanned cow, mahogany colored, black leather fittings and nickle hardware.
