Lapping Powder - Fine

$35.00 AUD

Available Now!

This fine lapping powder is ideal for lapping the backs of chisels, plane blades and other Japanese tools. 

We use this with our mild steel lapping plate. It gives a lovely matte finish, which can be refined to a polish by wiping the excess slurry from the plate and working the plate with a small amount of water. 

We recommend using a small amount at a time (about a 5-cent coin's worth).

Shapton recommends that this powder be used with it's own lapping plate to flatten fine grit waterstones, though we haven't used it in this way yet.
