Single sided? Linen or silk on the other or just the rough leather?

Single sided.

Definitely NO linen etc.

To adequately comment on the reverse side of the leather, I'd need to remove the packaging (which I'd prefer not to do), but it appears to simply be treated leather.

"... the mythical Dovo "XL"; this is their largest chunk of sweet-smelling "Russian" leather, with a "D" type bottom handle which is both sewn and riveted into the leather in a triangular pattern for maximum durability. No linen is on the back... The "XL" has a big 15"-length stropping surface that is, at 80mm across, wider than any straight razor's cutting edge I've seen. More than occasionally a very difficult thing to source, this damn stock-keeping-unit routinely languishes in backorder status for months at a time, as if Dovo's consciously keeping up the insatiable demand through frustration and leaking just enough of it.They certainly charge the moon and the stars for this one, but it is indeed an awesome cut of knowingly-overpriced soft leather..."
