    I think worth the money is a personal judgement. I have 3 of them, go figure. 2 of the big ones and one of the small ones. I love the soft leather on them and they produce great results. But, I also have a couple of great paddle strops and a bunch of great hanging strops from several makers.

    An A.D. is a terrible thing to waste..........

    Have fun.

    Yes Lynn is spot on. The Livi loom is really a nice tool to have. As Lynn stated the leather is the softest leather I have ever felt. Buttery soft.
    But my favorite part is the Chrom Ox side, which I use all the time after honing.
    Its well worth the expense.

    You said the magic words, "I want one". That means go ahead and buy it because if you don't you will always regret it and eventually you will buy it.

    I don't usually go to chrom-ox but when I do it is on the Livi Loom. As has already been noted the leather has to be felt to be believed. It has been worth it to me. If I was offered the $ back I'd say no and keep my Livi loom.

    Am reopening this old thread to see if the OP is still on the forum, and how he likes his Mastro Livi strop?

    Or anyone else with experience with this strop can chime in -- I am thinking of investing in one. Have also considered one of SRD's modular paddles and pretty sure can't really go wrong either way, but I tend to do a lot of research on these things before buying.
