    Thank you for the video, it’s great to see Naomi San in his workshop creating the pinnacle of strops.

    Thanks for posting. Nice vid, good topic. You might want to experiment with a different color for your text though. It can be very hard to see in places. I did enjoy watching it, though.

    Cool video, kind of sad though when he's done the strops are done. Also interesting to see a gentleman of that age sit "indian style".

    I have a strop made by Naomi san about 50 years ago. It still is slick and flexible and, except for one nick, looks like the day it was purchased. He certainly is a master of his craft.

    It is going to be a real loss when his strops are no longer made.

    Yes a frames is where I bought my first, the second one I bought was from a friend and it’s like yours, and it’s signed and dated from the 40, s slick blemish free and beautiful. I use it almost all the time.

    The man sure knew how to make a strop, mine will go to the grave with me
