    Where do you live? That will affect availability.

    I got two pack of VSM ceramic belts from Bi-Metal Industrial in Edmonton. I've ground (post heat treat) two knives and the first 60 grit still has some life in it. Super belts. Around $7 or $8 a piece in the pack of 12.

    The ones I'm using now are from Mike Mossington in North Bay, very nice guy to deal with. They're Hermes belts, AO, I grind pre-HT so they work not too bad. I don't find they last that long though, but they're the first belts I got when I got my grinder so I don't have anything to compare to. I'm getting some ceramic belts from Rob and Marylin in Alberta, we'll see how those work out.

    For a local supplier in the GTA there is Woodchuckers in Scarborough. They have a small selection. A couple different grit gators and a few others.
