Should be interesting to see where this goes and would there be any advantage to using them on the finest ceramics or would that be counter productive I am just wondering if the correct application of these CBNs could cut down on stropping since it sounds as if the quest fore the perfect finish takes a lot of stropping especially so for someone with out a set of Choseras having those must cut the stropping time down since the edge is pretty well polished .
A question on Choseras has anyone looked at the price of what the 30k Choseras would cost to mount on the WE I think the full sized stone is a little over 270€ but if you had that with a dash of CBN there would hardly be a need to strop I would imagine.

Do you mean the 30K Shapton stone?
At one time Clay sold them. They were real pricey.
If you read a bit, I think you will find that many think the 10K Chosera is a better polishing stone than the 30K Shapton.

My confusion getting late here (long night last night the weather changed end of summer thunder and lightening plus monsoon type rain and now the air temperature down 5ËšC )although I see Naniwa do a 12k stone yes you are quite right Shapton do the 30k.

Thats awesome the one I have seen is similar but I think it was a folder .
Do you have any intention of putting a handle on it be it paracord or carbon fibre scales could be suitable hightech and interesting.
Thanks for the picture!

I originally had a cord handle on it:

I have some G10 material to make scales, just haven't found the time to make a project of it. Carbon fiber would be even cooler.

This might be the folder you're thinking of:

This one belongs to Leo Mitchell. He had it sent to me for sharpening and I got the chance to fool with it a bit. It's a beast.

That is some real gnarly looking steel
:evil:

Is it my imagination... does it look like those irregular blobs (sorry for hyper technical reference) are raised above the rest of the steel. It almost looks like the material that appears lower shows scratches (abrasion caused striations ??) whereas the raised areas do not. Interesting for sure. I wonder if we are looking at carbides... you know the blobs... with the softer material having been abraded away around them...

Hmmm.
:P

I was thinking the same about the carbides, comparing that photo to the PDF you linked. They have some very similar characteristics.
