These are leather stropping blocks for putting that pristine final edge on any of your knife blades or tools. Each strop is 3.5" wide on the surface, 14" long, and 1.25" thick and has rubber feet to prevent slipping on any surface.
The leather is 8-9 oz veg tanned leather. The surface (not the sides) have been compressed and burnished so there is no need for any polishing compound; however, green chromium oxide is recommended if you choose to load your strop with compound.
The wood base is a heavy oak, stained and followed by two coats of polyurethane, so they are quite water resistant. There are dark walnut, pecan, and red mahogany colors to choose from.
