    I tried some Norton Red Heat R983 belts from CKSL. I have say these are super belts. My first 36 grit still has some life after two 9" chef knives. One S35VN and one Nitro-V, both are hard-as and ground post heat treatment. I'll buy these belts again.

    Cool...As an automotive jobber rep I have a Norton rep, and sometimes 2 x 72 Blaze and Bluefire 'demo' samples have somehow ended up in the trunk of my car lol! Except it seems Read Heat are cut to order, where as I can give part numbers to him on Blaze and Bluefire, doesn't look like I can for Red Heat 36-120G unless CKSL post Norton part-numbers and not just the designated line code R983.

    Blaze ceramic 36G - 120G that I have, well, they are crazy good. And I actually like the performance of their Bluefire 180G and 220G also.

    Fast cut usually wears faster but in the end they work so much faster the expense is well worth it
