I stopped in at oregon leather works on my way home today and bought a 2"x72" strip of vegetable tanned white latigo leather, do I need to do anything to it, like use a conditioner? I was contemplating rounding the top edges as well, is that a good idea or not?
Latigo is generally a very durable leather. It probably won't need any conditioner for quite a while. When the time comes, just a few drops of neetsfoot oil rubbed on your palms and then rubbed on the strop is usually more than enough to do the job. Leather conditioning is a less is more kind of thing.
Great looking pieces. I would research some preparation technologies. How does Kanayama make it so smooth. Too much Neetsfoot oil can gum up the works, cling with dust and make grime. Research is needed.
