Kangaroo Strop is an efficient way of final polishing a cutting edge using Hapstone or Edge Pro knife sharpener. A kangaroo strop enhances the cutting edge by correcting small nicks and smoothing grooves. The working surface is made of vegetable tanned kangaroo leather mounted on a 5 mm thick aluminum blank.
Color variations have no effect on stropping.
Working with kangaroo leather is similar to working with cow leather. Gently slide the cutting edge over the strop, repeating 20-30 times for each side of the blade. The motion should avoid damaging the leather with the cutting edge.
