So here's a video of the diamond bars in action!

In this video, I introduce a new line of products - Diamond Bars. These bars are designed to use on buffers using cotton or sisal wheels, typically buffers like the one in the video which uses 8" or 10" wheels at as high a speed as 3400 RPM. The Buffer is a 3/4 horsepower Baldor buffer on a Baldor pedestal.

I demonstrate using a Ryusen Blazen powdered steel knife which has longitudinal scratches along the length of the blade from inserting it in and out of it's sheath or saya.

First I demonstrate how to load or apply the compound bar to the cotton buffing wheel by applying moderate pressure against the wheel during powering up and down the buffer.

Note that you don't see a cloud of buffer material flying around - it sticks to the buffer wheel so you aren't wasting the compound or blowing it around into the air.

Next I do one side of the blade using the 4 micron bar. These bars are currently available in grits from 1 to 80 microns:

1 2 4 8 16 30 45 and 80 microns. This corresponds to grits starting at 16,000 grit down to less than 250 grit. Finer grits are 'in the works'.
The resultant finish is a scratch free mirror finish. These diamond bars will work with the full range of steels from soft steels to highly abrasion resistant steels - in short whatever you want to throw at it!

The compound adheres very firmly to the wheel during use and lasts far longer per application than the usual compounds. These are the first compounds available as a series with precisely specified particle sizes ensuring a highly uniform finish - perfect for refinishing knives and numerous other applications. Knife makers and serious sharpeners will find these diamond bars a major leap forward from the currently available compounds. The compounds contain an EXTREMELY HIGH concentration of diamonds plus some other ingredients precisely formulated to give you the finest compounds available today. Nothing else is even close!

Please contact me directly at ksskss@earthlink.net to purchase these diamond bars.
