Anyone flat grinding on a belt grinder knows the typical downfalls of a standard flat platen: heat and belt bump. As knifemakers we deal with friction all day, and as you know, friction equals heat. Heat can burn steel and ruin your temper. Currently you're limited to a maximum of 220 grit belt finishing on your knives using a traditional flat platen. As the grits get finer, the seam of the belt becomes more pronounced and you get "belt bump". Aside from being annoying, it prevents you from getting a clean and consistent grind, and your finish will suffer for it. The Moen Works Rotary Cooled Carbide Platen solves both these problems.
