Have been chatting and reading alot and have narrowed down my choices to three and am looking to take some votes on what you guys would choose.

1. Kanayama 8000


2. Westholme Cordovan ( these are made to order and run about $300


3. The Invisible Edge


I have heard all good about Kanayama but lately have heard about the other two as well.

My daily strop is a Westholme. You can't do much better and he is a pleasure to deal with. I have a several high end strops but the Westholme is my go to. 

I have not tried a kanayama yet. I reserve my Neil Miller for special occasions.

Not sure I will store it in the zippered covered sleeve

The cotton 3rd piece seems pretty harsh but may break in

Congratulations William you now own the best strop money can buy the 8000 is the King of all strops, If you ever tire of the 8000 I'll be more than happy to give it a good home.

Congratulations. I have the same three strops (plus a Westholme), and enjoy each of them. There is nothing like the feel of the Kanayama, but like straights, I enjoy variety.
