Great strop and base, needs a case

I'm just starting to get into artisan Japanese knives and after hours of research settled on Ryky's buffalo leather strop. It's a very premium product, the leather arrived in perfect condition, and it sharpens my knives quite well. After watching Ryky's videos, I felt pretty comfortable doing it for my first time, just taking it now and slow. I mostly have positive things to say about it.

The only downside is that I wish a small case or at least a ziplock bag was provided to keep the strop and compound on it safe in storage. I don't want dust or water to get on the strop. It's just a touch too big for a gallon zip locks to be used.

Great quality strop

I was pleased to see the quality of the strop when I opened my order. The self adhesive pads for the glass were a nice touch to stop the strop from slipping. I tried it on my very old but cherished Gerber hunting knife after I sharpened it on my Arkansas stone. After watching Ryky use it I very carefully stropped my hunting knife and could shave the hair on my arm. This strop will be a great addition to the polishing stone I purchased from the Burrfection store.
