KME's diamond lapping films are an economical way to achieve true mirror polishes on your bevels or to just take your blades sharpness to the next level.
The lapping films included in the Boxed set are:
- 9 micron
- 6 micron
- 3 micron
- 1 micron
- .5 micron
- .1 micron
These diamond lapping films are excellent for refining your edges to an incredible level of both sharpness and polish. Each grit size comes with 5 strips of lapping film and one tempered glass blank in a double sided vinyl sleeve that keeps the unused films clean and separate from the glass blank.
Instructions: We strongly advise working with only one film grit and glass blank at a time because the colors of some grits are very similar and can be easily confused.
1) Remove plastic from back of the strip to expose adhesive.
2) Secure strip to the glass blank. Be careful to align the strip fairly straight on the glass blank. Before use, the strip can be removed and repositioned if necessary.
3) Use only trailing, away from the edge, strokes just like stropping. Leading, into the edge strokes, can cut the films.
4) Use a hair dryer briefly to loosen the adhesive prior to removing a worn strip.
Each self-adhesive strip will service about 5-7 knives depending upon how much pressure you use against the blade, and how much work you do with each grit. Adding pressure will significantly shorten the service life of each strip though.
KME has found that a lightweight oil is the best lubricant to use on these diamond films. You can even use vegetable oil if you like. The kit includes a small dropper bottle of honing oil that is perfect for use with them. At Oldawan we use our lapping films dry.
