After reading all these threads on the DCBB, I kept trying to remember the specific media media used to get that special finish. Prized it out of Kit Carson about 5 years ago and lost it along with my old puter.:grumpy:

Well, a few shots of Talisker seemed to open up some neural pathways and I remembered the name.

It is called ZIRBLAST and can be found at www.zirpro.saint-gobain.com.

Very expensive compared to other media, but this is what the big boys use.

Forgot the grit # though.

I think the grit was around 300. But I could be mistaken as well. That grit leaves the blade looking like the typical double cut.

The biggest issue here is that if you go to a real high pressure you destroy the media. So you have to keep pressures at the recommended setting for each media type.
