Blanks are made of high-quality 5mm-thick aluminum with color anodizing. Blanks are available in six colors: graphite gray, black, deep ruby red, ocean blue, emerald green, sepia orange. When stropping or lapping has more than one step, blank identification can be a headache. Different colors of blanks will help to avoid mistakes of using wrong grit.
