What Are Lapping Films?

A while back, I had some questions about lapping films. Many were wondering what they are and what they are for. Lapping films are a flexible film with very fine medium adhered to them. The films are used for polishing metals. At least with the knife sharpening industry, that is what they are for. If you like to put a mirror edge on your knives, these polishing films will do the trick!

I did a video to show how to use them with the ViperSharp system. I will share that with you here.

As you can see, the results are spectacular. How many blades you can do with each film will vary but expect between 5-15. Much depends on the steel you are polishing and the material fo the film. We offer both diamond and silicone carbide and aluminum oxide films. The diamond will of course, last longer and provide high quality results on super steels such as M390, Elmax and Zwear.

Whether you are looking for a mirror edge or just to refine your edge beyond a strop, you will be happy with the results you get from these films. As you can see from the video, they are super easy to use and the results can be seen right away. So, what are you waiting for? Impress your friends, your wife or just improve that edge. You will be amazed at how smooth that knife will glide through everything you cut with a polished edge.
