Yikes! Those are spectacular shots of that highly reflective edge you put on the Farid blade! I can't believe it took only 4 minutes to raise burrs on that formidable steel edge. I look forward to getting my folder from Farid hopefully sometime in May. Who knows?! He is very mysterious about his work flow so one never knows. ;)
You are up late tonight boss! Can't sleep? Me too! :lol:

Cheers

Thanks Leo. I was just up a little late waiting for Kay to get back from chorus and thought it would be fun to post some pics from the week. I was actually inspired after reading Rlb's post and seeing his pictures here: Mirror Edge PM2

Reprofiled them all to 15° per side, polished them to .25um Diamond on Kangaroo strops.

It took a few hours to do all five of them, especially reprofiling them down to 15°. Once that was done it went pretty fast. I guess maybe 3 hours total.
