What is leather strop?

Suitable for from beginner to advanced users. This strop effortlessly restores your edge to razor sharpness. It is an invaluable tool for reviving dull edges with minimal effort.

The double-sided Kangaroo leather sharpening strop from our collections is guaranteed to streamline your sharpening routine for both knives and cutting tools.

Each side of the strop boasts premium Australian Kangaroo leather, handpicked by the Sydney-based manufacturer to ensure unparalleled performance.

Featuring two smooth sides, one is for the final polish, perfect for pairing with the SYDNEY STROP CO. High-grit paste, or it can be used bare for a more natural finish. The other side is versatile enough to accommodate various sharpening needs.

 

The merit of using leather strop

When a knife begins to dull, restoring its sharpness can be achieved more conveniently with a leather strop coated with compound rather than revisiting the whetstone. This method is not only easier but also safer, as it minimizes the risk of removing excess steel and does not require good sharpening skills.

Should the strop not achieve the desired edge, it may be necessary to re-sharpen the knife using a whetstone. Personally, I advocate for natural methods; thus, I prefer using a raw leather strop without compounds to remove any burrs following the whetstone. This technique ensures peak sharpness and a truly satisfying feel.

 

About Kangaroo leather

Due to its low fat content and thin grain layer, Kangaroo leather possesses exceptional strength relative to its thickness.

Compared to other leathers, Kangaroo leather is both lighter and stronger, with use, albeit at higher price point.

Typically, Kangaroo leather offers a firmer stropping surface, preventing excessive conveying of the bevel, making it ideal for blades with precise sharpening angles.
