¿Tanned Bovine or Split Leather... that is the question.

(AOS, AO, HD, VG10, etc.)

It depends on the compound used.

I like the spray on the split side and this gives the edge a toothy feel.

I like the smooth leather with the pastes. This gives the edge a slicker, longer lasting razor type edge.

Thanks, Mark. :)

Newspaper hasn't let me down for years now, but acquiring a straight edge, I feel I'm going to have to expand the tool set for it. Might as well spread the wealth to my knives, as well. :twisted:

For razors: Definitively smooth bovine or horse.
