Description:
This is my first paddle strop and I only wish it had been available to buy two years ago when I first started straight razor shaving. I'd handled Dovo paddle strops but wanted something with more substance and hadn't found it until now.

Steve Dempster of the Invisible Edge seems to be putting out some very high quality custom items at the moment, and the service is both friendly and efficient (shave ready is truly shave ready from this place). As soon as I saw these paddle strops on his site I knew I'd found what I'd been looking for. The craftsmanship is superb. Mine is constructed from lacquered ash with latigo leather and substantial stainless hanger, with a mighty 3" width. It makes the others out there look like toys.

Performance? I can do no better than say that, at long last, my TI 1884 is now producing a shave worthy of it's venerable name. I have to confess that my prize razor never lived up to my hopes, until now. It was the first blade I took to the paddle strop, having pasted up one side with diamond paste. The amount of springs feels perfect and being able to strop on the 3" width is a treat. The mirror polish boded well and the resulting shave was significantly better than anything before. Ditto the rest of my blades.

One of the best purchases I've ever made.
