what kind of acc. will I need to remove scratches or sharpening marks from knife blades. I own a 400 XRP. I have tried polishing them out but that will not get out the scratches or sharpening marks from the knife blades.

I done the same thing not long ago. I started with the #511 280 grit abrasive buff. Then I used the #425 emery wheel then to the #414 felt wheel with the polishing compound. It turned out pretty good.

Doug's pretty much on the money as always, but there's an easier way still.

http://www.testors.com/catalog_item.asp?itemNbr=1193

Head to ebay.com and search on "testors sanding film". You can get them for half what Testors has them listed on that page above.

Chances are, you'll want to start with the light tan one and work your way to the red.

Best way to remove sharpening scratches is to gently fold the film in half between your thumb and forefinger, but NOT crease it! Slip the blade edge in between the pieces and CAREFULLY slide it up and down the edge polishing both blade faces at the same time.

Tan will restore a factory-like satin finish to a blade....red will be almost mirror-like. Follow the red with a buffing wheel and it'll shine.

That sounds like a good idea, next time I will give it a try.
