I do miniature modelling. Since moving to Japan, it's difficult moving away from the products that I know work and using new ones. Choosing a sandpaper is no different. Japan seems fond of paper, but I'm used to sticks. However, when it came time to get more I decided to take a chance and get this product--instead of the Mr. Hobby stuff. The biggest reason was price point. You get a LOT of sand paper at some excellent grades for the money. I'm very pleased with the finish that I've been getting with these, but I have ended up cutting and gluing strips of these to chopsticks. They work very well and look like they'll stand up to a lot of use. That increases their value. The fact that these products are made locally (in Japan) increases my desire to support this product. So, whether you're a miniature modeller or not, I recommend these highly. I'd definitely continue with this brand when I need more.
