2" X 72" SPECIALTY SANDING BELTS
What are Specialty Sanding Belts?
Because 2" x 72" belts are our most common size, we offer specialty materials. For a lacquered finish, we recommend our film line. Our scalloped edged belts are great for edge grinding without producing any unwanted gouges. With our Structured Abrasives, the "structure" of the belt exposes fresh grit as you grind, keeping the belt sharp. We find they excel for finish work on metal and are of little use for handle materials. Available in the equivalents of 400-2500 grits.
How do Scalloped Edge Belts Work?
Note: These 2" x 72" Scalloped belts are actually 1" wide, but are the correct size you would use to run on a 2" x 72" grinder.

- These leather strops are used with polishing compound to finish the sharpening and edge of the knife. Typically these belts last a very long time and most knife makers only have one for each type of compound they finish with—often settling on one single compound and belt to finish their edge.
- Film Sanding Belts are available in various micron grades and are perfect for micro-finishing because they leave a very consistent scratch pattern. The film backing reduces chatter and allows the belt to run more smoothly compared to conventional belts.
