Has anyone used these?

They seem pretty inexpensive and go all the way to 1 micron.

Thanks.

I bought these years ago and never could get any use from them. They're felt like and super thin, easy to tear, and don't work with hard steel. I think these might be better suited to woodworking or plastics or softer metals.

There are diamond relatively thicker PSA versions of these used especially in the fiber optics field that I think will work wonderfully well - but I haven't found anyone who will sell individual sheets to me (yet)

I believe Gator has had success with them, as has C-Dawg, in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4--HIDogrc8

Those diamond sheets are available at lee valley. Down to .1u. Never tried them though. If only they made them in 1x42 belts!

I've bought a set ranging from 1k to .3micron i believe. At the time I only had a miyabi kaizen to sharpen, but on that steel they worked good. Worked nice to almost mirror polish the bevel.

I've had some for a couple of years too. I didn't know what to do with them, but after watching that video, it made me think they'd make pretty good stropping material.

Now I finally have a use for the glass plate on my HA strop base. :idea2:

Used some last night on a razor--I needed something with a smaller micron to clean up before using a natural finisher and it did fine. Used on glass and it was alright, but obviously lacked the feeling of a nice stone. Don't think I'd want to use it on a knife, but ymmv.
