Thanks guys. I’ll check out your recommendations.

Saw an interesting comment on an review the other day. I was looking at a Trend strop/paste combo that they sell, and the reviewer was complaining that the strop was poor quality and waaaaay overpriced for what it was. He suggested buying a welder’s apron and cutting it up. I checked them out on Amazon and it strikes me that you get a lot of what looks like pretty good leather for about £10 inc postage.
Having said that, I do feel a bit reticent to cut up a brand new item!!
