The 1" x 42" Surge-Sharp leather honing belt is manufactured from top quality shoulder leather. The joints are smooth and stronger than the surrounding leather. They are currently being manufactured in 1" x 30", 1" x 42", 2" x 42", 2" x 48", and 2' x 72". Custom sizes are available.
The Belts are manufactured smaller than sanding belts to provide for the natural stretch of leather. They will fit very snug when initially installed.
Buffing compound is applied to the belt according to the instructions on the packaging. Some kits come with buffing compound or you can use one that suits your needs.
The belts are well suited for many polishing jobs in addition to the outstanding job they do honing tools and knives.
