Tape off the ends

After rolling, wrap tape around the ends. Write the grit size on the tape. As the sandpaper becomes used up, tear off a strip and expose fresh sandpaper below. You will need various grades of sandpaper, 120, 180, 220, 400, 600 and 1200. Take the knife profile only to 400 grit. After hardening and tempering you will use 600 and 1200.
