    3M Micron Polishing Paper

    Has anyone used these?

    http://www.amazon.com/37-948-Micron-...hu-rd_add_1_dp

    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

    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.

    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.

    Cheers
