    thanks.
    So what are you guys using this for? I'm really, really interested, but I'm not sure how to use sand paper for thinning or other purposes.

    Use it the same way you use a stone. Except you change the sandpaper when it stopps cutting properly or when you need a different grit.

    Also, Though I haven't used it as a leather strop, I was able to get a thin piece of horse to fit.

    A very late response - was I asleep at the wheel? :confused:
    I have used kangaroo leather in the Kasfly. It's fairly easy to fit it but mounting it on a broader and longer piece of timber (or other suitable substratum) is much more satisfying for stropping duties.

    Just used mine to thin and restore very damaged edges on a set of old Chigago Cutlery knives for a relative. It's good to be able to go very coarse but I find that anything below about 180 grit feels wierd. 180 is pretty fast, though.
