My new strop from the late Neil Miller arrived today, a multi-component magnetic paddle strop 6 surfaces including 3 types of leather soft Latigo med/heavy draw, Cowhide light/med draw, Horsehide med/light draw, hard wool felt, Flax Linen, and finally Balsa, a truly wonderful item to have and to own that will definitely see a lot of use from me, the stropping surface measures 12" x 3".

How were you able to get that Jamie?  I have a magnetic modular paddle strop from Straight Razor Designs, but it's not as nice as Neil's.  I wish I had acquired one of these before Neil's passing.

Ricardo,

this was a little bit of luck as Neil is no longer with us and he certainly didn't make to many of these, lucky for me a guy I know on a UK forum put this one up for sale never used I couldn't say no.

You're very lucky.  I recall seeing these on Neil's website and thinking about getting one, but they were rarely available.  I should have been more diligent and contacted him about one.  Anyway, congratulations on a uniquely beautiful and functional paddle strop.
