    Where to Buy a Strop Kit?

    Hope this is the right forum for this... and that this info isn't already up here somewhere-- if it is, sorry, I couldn't find it! What are some good sites to buy a strop kit from? Don't want to buy one from... you know. (They're out anyway.) I'm too new to know the reasons for all the animosity but I can smell the bad business in the water, and I'd just rather give my $ to someone who seems more reputable. Maybe I'm making an unfair assumption- and maybe I don't care to find out if it's accurate or not either Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm a beginner- never used one before- if that makes any difference as far as suggested products. Thanks in advance!!

    I have also bought strops from Dave/JapaneseKnifeSharpening but it does not look like he is carrying them at the moment.

    Kramer has what looks like a nice strop set, but I've neither used nor seen it. Seems a pretty fair price.

    I made three 16" long strops for the grand total of about $10. To be fair, I got the leather for free, and I already owned a can of contact cement.
    I'll post some pics this evening if anyone is interested.
