    Can I just say that this is very exciting and I am very happy for you to have this growing business John. As soon as I am up and running at the new house you can count on my support. Congratulations!

    Cheers :beer:

    Oh and as for grits, 2x72 would be 36G through to as high Phoenix goes lol...I finished one knife with a series of belts I got from woodchuckers that went up to 1200 (forget the brand), but I must say I enjoyed letting my grinder do all the work to that fine a finish:p

    I have package deals coming in and 2000 grit is in there.
    Plus they carry cork belts which rock the mirror shine

    Awesome John. I have very little knowledge about belts. I have only ever used Norton because I just don't make enough knives to go through them as fast as the rest of you guys. But, I will say that when i need a restock (soon) I will check them out. Thanks again John.

    John, was just on the website checking things out (and I see now that you typed it here too), can you tell me a bit about Cork belts and the differences of a gritted and non gritted cork belt? Apart from the obvious one has an abrasive the other doesn't lol!! I mean at what is the typical usage for these kinds of belts.

    Cheers!

    Cork belts get loaded with Buffing compound and work faster than a buffing wheel.

    They get expensive but last a long time if you don’t slice them apart like my 600 grit belt one benefit is they don’t remove skin when they fail

    So the grit/abrasive on the ones that have it is extremely fine, like above 2000?

    From Phoenix Abrasives I will be getting
    2” x 72” Cork Polishing Belt
    400,600,800 or Non Grit

    non grit can be used with white or similar finishing / polishing paste the others use a similar grit buffing compound. on mine I was using Green, Red and white

    I should be able to get them on the site for about $12.00 each

    For those that want a brushed look then there is the scotchbrite conditioning belts which work very well.

    This batch I have coming in is kits of belts and a couple have the "J" weight scalloped edge belts which are ideal for finishing the ricasso or blending transitions
