thanks , its a downland engineering maxi grinder with every attachment they could provide ha ha , then ceramic belts from 36 to 240 grit then trizact from 400 to 2000 grit and eveery grade between !
its a big leap forward for me the machine . i can be alot more consistant with it .
if its good enough for allen woods its got to be good enough for me :)

Matt still has 3 blades left for sale,- they are a real bargain at this price and are perfect for any type of "bushcraft".

Like comparing a Lada to a Ferrari, lol. Your blades are very reasonably priced and the quality is superb.
