Super Fine Belts are white and marked 1000 grit internally. They are sold in pairs and are 1000 grit. The super fine grit abrasive belt is designed as a finishing belt and will provide a razor sharp edge to the knife, as well as a polished finish. These belts contain diamond abrasive and will leave your knife looking, feeling and working like new.
Fine Belts are pink internally and a sold in pairs. They are 600 grit and come fitted as standard on new Nirey Sharpeners (except KE-198). This grit belt is designed as a finishing or honing belt. These belts cut cold and are extremely hard wearing and long lasting. They are made from aluminium-oxide.
Medium Belts are white internally and a sold in pairs. They are 400 grit, being more aggressive, they are designed to profile knives more quickly than the fine belts. These belts cut cold and are extremely hard wearing and long lasting. They are made from aluminium-oxide.
Course Belts are blue internally and a sold in pairs. They are 200 grit. This grade of belt is designed to profile damaged and badly chipped knives.

Extremely hard wearing and long lasting, these belts are made from aluminium-oxide.
Replacement abrasive belts are sold in packs of two – and you may require a set of each to swap in and out of your Nirey Electric Knife Sharpening Machine. Electric Knife Sharpeners are commonly used by butchers, chefs, those in the professional catering industry, such professional chefs in hospital settings and even home users. Many individuals and organisations own Nirey electric knife sharpeners to keep their knives safe, maintaining the sharp edge and prolonging the life of their knives.
Typical use of replacement abrasive belts with varying grit sizes comes down to the relative smoothness of the finish you will achieve on the knife edge. The factors that will affect the finish you will achieve on your knife relate to:
the shape and diameter of the abrasive particles on each belt
the hardness of the grit praticles
whether the grit particles can be crushed or “fractured” into smaller ones and
the chemical composition of the abrasive particles – for example aluminium-oxide.
