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.
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.
