Sandpaper and Abrasives
Knife making and Blacksmithing both require top quality abrasives. Whether it’s high carbon steel or high alloy, most metals used in these trades can be quite difficult to grind or sand. When grinding plunge lines, belts that run true are an absolute necessity to knife makers. Our customers regularly complement us on how true our belts run, as well as the reliability and integrity of our belt joints.
