BEST BUFFER FOR KNIFE POLISHING

BEST BUFFER FOR KNIFE POLISHING

October 22, 2021

WHAT IS THE BEST BUFFING MACHINE FOR POLISHING KNIVES? 

Buffers are machines that use rotating lathes that spin buffing wheels in combination with an applied abrasive compound to achieve a polish or mirror finish on aluminum, steel, stainless steel or handle materials such as woods, composites and plastics. While there is a variety of options out there that we have tested, there really is only one that makes sense for your money! Most buffers we found did not have enough speed or Horse Power (HP) and had unconventional arbor holes that are not compatible with most buffing wheels. 

#1 Buffer for polishing knives is the Grizzly G1061Z Buffing System 

 

We cannot recommend this enough and is compatible with our easy to use polishing kit!
