    Don't tell me that you came to ECG and didn't show me this strop.

    Haha, I did have it with me but forgot all about it. I had my Aritsugu that I put a Stefan handle on too and forgot about that as well. Doh!

    The design is no doubt clever as mentioned earlier, nice work!

    I like it. Have you put anti-skid feet on your strop base yet (or planning to)? And do you like the added height? It looks to be about 3.5 inches.

    It is about 3.5" wide and 3" tall. Strops are about 12", total length of base is a little more than 13.5". I like the height of it.

    I have not put any nonskid feet on it yet, I carry a nonskid mat in my bag to use under cutting boards and have just been using that. But I probably will at some point.

    I can send you some your way if you like, as a small compensation for being long overdue on your saya.

    Well, I only put compound on one side of each strop base, so I can stack them a bit. I was thinking about making little H shaped blocks so I could stack them all together and not have them touching. Right now I have a giant restaurant size roll of plastic wrap at my house, and I just wrap them in that when I am not using them.

    Steal away! You should have no problem producing one that is slightly better constructed than mine, haha.

    How are the pieces for the base joined together?

    Glue and dowels.

    It was never my intention to make it look like it was Japanese made, but I am happy with the way it looks.
