As some may recall i have been looking at several options for a paddle strop for my son as he does not care for a hanging strop, well after asking lots of questions and doing some research I ended up getting him a Rasurpur Paddle from Martin at http://www.rasurpur.de/english/shop/ Martin was SUPER to deal with and was very, very patient in answering all my questions and making suggestions, so with further delay here are some pics of his Christmas paddle strop.


It's a large interchangeable paddle strop that has a pre finish side and a finish side and the paddles are held in place by small magnets, it's a very well made piece and the components are very well finished.

I had to do a little testing on it to make sure it was good [Image: lol.gif] and i have to say I was pleasantly surprised, it would take some getting used to but it does have some flex but nothing like a hanging strop, I honestly believe it will keep a razor well maintained, the napped side is very similar to the Kanayama suede and the Bridle side has a very fast almost glassy draw but and sure it will give just a bit once it's broke in.

Not sure i would need one as i have 4 strops but its pretty enough just to own one to display

Looks great. I am pretty sure I'll eventually try a paddle strop. This one looks great. Thanks for sharing.

I own one of these with several panels. It is a great strop, I like the width and the fact that it is longer than most paddles or loomstrops.
