The 3"x8" Kangaroo Strop is mounted on glass. Extra-thin kangaroo leather was selected specifically because it is so thin that the amount of 'give' is minimized. Smooth? You bet! This is considered an ultimate strop, especially well suited for ultrafine compounds below one micron going all the way down to the finest compounds (0.025 microns - ten times finer than quarter micron). In the extreme, it can also be used without compound and has the 'draw' associated with leather. Pictures can't truly capture the smoothness, which must be touched to truly believe just how fine it is. We also add our magnetic backing to the back so you can easily use the strop with our strop base.
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Very grateful such a dedicated and informative group of people provide excellent steel at competitive prices with superior customer service! A million thank yous!
