  • Tradesman Resin Bond Wheels for Bladesmiths , Model M for Knife makers S For Sharpeners

We’ve learned a lot in our 20 years in the cutting tool grinding business
And this is what we know.

Resin bond wheels are sharp, Plated bond wheels are dull
Resin bond wheels never wear out , Plated bond wheels are fragile and wear out

This is  a no brainer:
The abrasive particles in resin bond wheels are sharp and cut the steel instead of “plowing”
this results in a thinner  which is easily removed.

In this test we used a :
100 grit diamond resin bond wheel for apex fabrication
2000 Grit Diamond wheel fore Edge prep (Finish grinding)
Composite wheel (40 durometer neoprene)  Tormek Paste

Look at the second picture totally manageable burr can be taken off with a few strokes on a paddle strop
Third picture one light pass low rpm wheel to a micro burr.
Fourth Picture   3 super light passes each side burr is totally gone.

Best part:  Resin bond wheels almost never wear out, 🙂
