Gary LT Posted January 4 Share Posted January 4 Okay all, I have this question to ask if anyone has accomplished a “smooth polished finish” on knives with leather spacers on handles. I mean smooth polished finish and not showing grain porosity. I haven’t…..and tried. I was told to “burnish” the leather, (but not exactly how ……). So I did, using different attempts, with fine scotchbrite, buffing wheels and compounds, soaking the leather in water or oil or applying wax, progressive hand sanding, etc. I may be using lesser quality leather, (for sure!). Other well known makers do this successfully however I thought I’d start here to ask. Any advise Gary LT "I Never Met A Knife I Didn't Like", (Will Rogers) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
