    I mainly do full flat grinds so the scale comes off anyway.

    I typically select precision ground where possible. Not sure why anyone (like me) doing stock removal would eat the extra work, and kill their belts or discs on scale.

    That said I know not all forge scale looks and acts like armor plating...for instance, 440C actually looks quite good when partially ground and the scale left on the flats/ riccasso.

    But precision ground gets my vote.

    I am looking at adding kydex to my store. What is every one's preferred size and thickness? I am thinking 18"x12" to make shipping easier, but still big enough for larger knives.

    Thanks,

    Lawrence

    For Kydex 0.06" and 0.08" are popular
    For shipping there is a big difference in price when shipping the 12x24 and most people I have sold to don't mind getting 12x12 instead

    Seems the only way to get a good price is to buy by the tonne.

    Hi Lawrence,

    I noticed a new section on your web store for Stainless. I see the 154CM in there. Any idea when the other flavours are coming in?

    What are people's thoughts on VSM belts? I have been approached by VSM to carry their belts and want some user feedback.

    Thanks,

    VSMs are my go-to belts. Ceramics Plus. Pretty much all I use now for quickly removing hardened steel. I usually get XK880Y in 36, 60 and 120 grits.

    I have just ordered some of their new Ilumeron belts to try out on the finishing side of things. I will let you know how they work.

    VSM are my main rough work belts. I typically use 36, 50 or 60 and 120 before moving to Trizact. I have been getting them from Tru-Grit for years. Their prices are good but shipping to Canada is getting fairly steep.

    They are the BEST belts you can use. I have used the ceramic belts for 7-8 years and they will out preform and outlast anything out there.
    Lawrence I was the one that told the Man/Sask rep they should contact you. I still like the Klingspour yellow J flex belts for finishing handles and working around curves.
    VSM makes a great product and are a great company to deal with.

    I come up against this daily in the collision repair industry as a sales rep. You get technicians that swear by 3M, Norton or Mirka, and then won’t use anything else.

    That’s a fine with me as I sell all three, so Lawrence bringing in VSM can only help grow your business, since you already have the other manufacturers covered.

    Personally I don’t think anything cuts like Norton Blaze (Orange) in the 36G - 120G range...but each to their own:beer::beer:

    I liked the way the Blaze belts cut but they constantly left black sousaphone caked all over my platen and they smelled terrible. The best way I can describe it was when you walk in to an apartment building and smell that mixture of foreign foods coming from multiple units that just grosses you out.
