Pros: Overall Quality, Durability
Great paddle strop!
I prefer a paddle strop because I like the draw of them and feel they are better for the razor (tight, flat surface). The Jemico is a good size (not too small, not too large) and is very rewarding to use. Sturdy, functional, and well-made. I mostly use Japanese straights (kamisori), which are the perfect size for this strop and draw beautifully. My western straights like it as well!The green/chromium oxide side they say is about a 50k grit, so it's perfect for touch-ups without causing premature wear. With this strop the hones come out less than once per year.All in all, a great strop to have. And, for the price, it can't be beat.5 stars is nearly impossible in my book, so I'd give 4.8 if I could. No complaints from me and my razors are happy with it as well.
