    Good grief, this is sounding like an exercise in paleontology

    Have made a few paddles. My personal one's are jarrah with roo on top. Have made some only 1 by 12 inch and they work just as well as the 3 inch ones if not a bit better as there is more flexibility in use. Good luck and post some pics once your done.
    My wife calls me......... Can you just use Ed

    Do the narrow ones help if you have a particularly warped blade?

    had a brain fart Bongo just to add to the confusion, what if you were to do 3 sides in leather for paste & stropping etc & on the 4th side add a finisher hone cut length ways or full size, either glued or screwed to the base like some of the old paddles I have seen with the stone attached via screwed in plates etc
    then you would have a complete "one stop paddle strop" to cover all you blade refreshing needs LOL
    Saved,
    to shave another day.

    Thats a pretty good idea, i thought of a razor case with a finsher built into the underside of the lid, and leather on the top.

    Don't have any warped blades but at 1 to 1 1/2 inch its kind of like a thin hone with a lot of maneuverability.
