    600 Grit Belts?

    I use the norax and they work for me. I understand it changes with everyone for sure. Mainly Ed I wanted to tell you I understand about the Pupus. My wife has it and sometimes it is horrifying. She is such a warrior and most of the time you don't know how bad it affects her unless you look into...

    Advice on nail nick

    You can get the little chop saw from Harbor Freight it cost about 29.00. It takes a three inch blade.

    BladeBond Epoxy Pigments---Now Available

    How does this compare to the System 3 epoxies that I have been using. The T-88 or G-2 and the Gel magic. I think they are water proof as well since they are being made for the marine industry. I am always interested in new products especially when those companies support the knife industry.

    etched steel colors

    NO that is not what I am thinking. When you etch Damascus different steels have a different color shade to them that is what makes the pattern pop out. Not just the different hardness of the steel. When steels have a different hardness they look different and that is what I am asking about. Some...
