Kangaroo Strop For Edge Pro 1x6". Kangaroo is an ultrafine surface--smoother than a baby's butt. It takes compounds extremely well and is extremely thin, minimizing inadvertent edge convexing. It's also an extremely strong leather. In particular, 'roo works exceptionally well with grits 0.125 micron and below because it doesn't provide much, if any, abrasion on its own, letting the compounds shine through. It should work well enough on some of the coarser compounds. It also has a nice consistent draw.

The 1" x 6" strops are mounted on aluminum blanks. Pictures can't truly capture the smoothness of the roo, which must be touched to truly believe just how fine it is.

  Need your own adhesive, September 19, 2020
Posted By: Anthony

The strop is good. It's just leather on an aluminum backing. My only issue was the adhesive came undone during shipping. Probably not their fault, they likely used some kind of spray adhesive and I live in Las Vegas. The heat can really mess with certain types of adhesive. I just stuck it to the blank with super glue and works great.

Just wanted to add to my last review. After a while this strop got pretty loaded up with metal and a fair share of nicks and cuts. The metal swarf will clean off nicely with a microfiber towel and bit of 90% isopropyl alcohol. If the surface gets rough, I take a sheet of 600 grit sandpaper on a flat surface, and flatten the strop almost like I would flatten a stone. I exposes a nice fresh layer of leather and a surface that is prime for a fresh layer of diamond compound, spray or paste.

Excellent strop. The thin leather helps keep a crisp edge. I would encourage the supplier to find an adhesive that causes the leather to adhere to the aluminum backing better when liquid stropping compound is applied. Although the leather tends to peel up on the ends with the application of liquid compound it re-adheres with a little pressure.

  Sturdy Strop, August 1, 2018

Very taut, making for good smoothing of bevel without dulling the edge. Came well packaged.

  Better than free hand, July 25, 2018
Posted By: Brandon Burnett

Wow, this strop works great. Normally I use a 1000 grit edge pro stone followed, 2000 grit polish tape, then finish with a free hand strop with some green compound. Just tried this with some 1 micron diamond spray, and I'm impressed. I get a much nicer edge with this and the diamond compound.

This is the second strop that I've bought to replace my original, however it took a few years of constant usage to get to the point where I needed another one!

  Product Review, December 18, 2013
Posted By: Colin M, - verified customer

The Kangaroo strops are worth every penny. They are a high quality stropping substrate. The stiction produced when used with the edge pro produces a heavy burnishing effect in conjunction with the effect of the stropping compound you are using.This finely grained leather is stretched tautly across the aluminum backing. This produces a strop with very little give , greatly reducing the risk of rounding off your edge. I use mine with CBN , these make a great finishing step for all knives.

Posted By: Steeley - verified customer

Kens strops are amazing. And the Kangaroo is no exception. It is extremely thin, and has almost no give, thus making your chances of micro convexing your edge very small. Compounds work fantastic on it as well. Highly recommended. I do prefer the 2x6 size for freehand stropping.

What an amazing strop! Despite the 1 x 6 format it works very well for freehand stropping, even on large knives. Not surprising I guess since it was developed by a guy that sharpens gyutos on Post-It Note. :-)

Yes, this Kangaroo is something to hop around about! I use it to finish my straight razor, and I'm completely blown away by my results. Use it with nothing on it after your compounds. It keeps an edge that I trust on my face, day in and day out.
