I vote both chosera and strop. I'm not sure about diamonds? But will absolutely buy one for each paddle set.

I have a question for everyone: Would you use these covers with the stones too? And if so, would you use them w/ Chosera stones? I'm thinking of making them deep enough to fit over the Choseras but don't want to build in that much play unless enough people think they'd use them for the thicker stones.

My plan is to just use them with the strops... especially in the carrying case. I probably wouldn't use on anything else.

Just a thought, the retention mechanism for these appear to be the four tabs, but was thinking of a possibly simpler solution... what about a channel with either one or both ends open? Instead of having four tabs, the entire edge would be a long tab. Install/remove by sliding it on from the end. No fancy CAD drawing, Microsoft Paint sketch attached. :)

Have you taken any creativity pills lately, Clay? ;)

It looks great. I'd definitely use them on my strops, but not on my stones. (One thing to consider is the added size. I use a Plano box to store my stones and there is not much room left for wider/thicker stones.)

Did you d/l the file to print a gun? ;)

I'm sure even ordering a printer has you on a government watch list, brother!

Look out the window. You see that black SUV? They are there for YOU.....

We're gonna miss you, Clay! ;)

Clay,
Did you make a decision regarding a case for the stones? Is it possible to have one for the choseras? They are pretty expensive and I would love to protect them.
Thank you, Eamon

What would you think about leaving one end closed off? That would give a bit more support on that end and maybe a bit more protection from contamination.
