Here you get the best of both surfaces in one strop..
The skin side is finer grain and will give good results with razors and similar blades.
The tail side is more suited for knives and tools. It has been proven to give a sharper edge on knives.
There is no reason you can’t use either side for either job.

Description

HIGH GRADE KANGAROO LEATHER
NATURAL VEGETABLE TANNED
We need additional details in order to complete the Wildlife Product Export authorisations. If you are not in Australia please contact us at email wishairlie123@gmail.com before buying
Stropping surfaces are 600 mm long x 90 mm wide.
The quoted dimensions are not precise. They may well be slightly less.
If you are particular about the size you will get, please make sure you send me either a question or a message.
I am here to make sure you are happy with your purchase.

The timber end fittings are from the beautiful and rare Australian tropical rain forest species of Silver Ash – (Flindersia bourjotiana). Not to be confused with Silvertop Ash – which is a Eucalypt (Eucalyptus sieberi).
Although Silver Ash is a very common native rainforest species, harvesting from native groves is now banned. There are however some small commercial plantations.
The timber used for these strop fittings is from small left-over off-cuts of flooring boards from a project done some 30 years ago.
FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS ONLY:- The Export Licence we have been approved to use covers the Kangaroo leather. It does not cover the timber. Your country may have specific laws regarding timber imports.

We can include any of my other products in a single order consignment.
Please ask.

The photo is the one you will get.
This is the TAIL side.
The colour and finish is natural veg tanned.
The web addresses below will show you some Youtube videos that demonstrates the use of Kangaroo tail leather for a knife edge strop. Just copy one and paste it in to a new browser window.
The first video also details a very neat and inexpensive way to set yourself up with a very effective fixed angle diamond sharpening system.


And here is a link to a video produced by a highly respected journalist that was broadcast by the Australian Broadcasting Commission giving some idea about the extent of the Kangaroo plague. The video is getting to be a few years old now, but is still relevant today. Particularly interesting is the interview starting at about 5 minute 47 seconds into the video.

Kangaroo leather is a 100% renewable and sustainable resource.
Before harvest no chemical dips, sprays or drenches of any kind are ever used to aid production.
Unlike some suppliers, we freeze our hides (rather than use fortified hide salt) at the point of harvest in order to avoid preservative chemicals. Thereafter the only treatment is the actual tanning to make the leather.

SOME FEEDBACK COMMENTS:-
:- Thanks for super speedy delivery and a beautiful product! Will buy again!!! 
:- Good quality product.
:- Thanks for your help showing me how to strop and sharpen.
Now as I sharpen and then strop my knives . Wow, it is much more refined and holds the edge longer and its like I have power steering on my knife.
:- Hi. Just used the roo leather as a strop. I got an amazing result. My sharpening skills are improving but finishing the blade on that leather feels great and blade performs beautifully. Thanks for your advice about leaving off the polishing compounds. Can’t see myself using them now. Thanks
