    The idea is to try it, in the interests of 'scientific' research. Sometimes these techniques reveal interesting things which can only be seen when you actually go through the process.

    It seems perfectly logical to me.

    As soon as I get off this I'm gonna paint a paddle with chocolate pudding. I here it makes a good strop. The only issue is might vanilla or butterscotch be better?

    The texture of the outside skin of the fungus is like very very fine suede. It has also apparently also been used in the past to give the final polish to metal. Given that members here have stropped on all kinds of materials, including wood, all kinds of textile, different hides, newspaper and cardboard, and even their own skin, I think it is worth investigating for completeness at least.

    Let us know how it goes with the chocolate pudding

    Turns out this has been visited before, and the most useful comments come from Neil Miller, who tried it:

    Thanks for posting that link. Missed that one altogether but had a goodly number of laughs reading it now.

    Was anyone expecting to see a really neglected strop??

    Interesting. Never heard of mushrooms/fungus being used like that. Thanks for posting.

    I'll be waiting for the Pudding Pop Strop thread.
