Re: the interference pattern
Response To:
the interference pattern ()

David Weaver
I probably should've been more clear that the lines I'm seeing are on the surface of the wood, and not those cartoon like lines behind the wear bevel on the iron.

Are those interesting pattern lines on the iron (the ones that almost look like the lines you see through a lens used to check flatness) the ones you're referring to as an interference pattern?

The edge of the iron for this iron looks rough, but only slightly so on the 100 stroke picture, and then the decline is very visible here at the cutting edge - rough edge forming with the more typical wear (like the neatly made wear on the O1 iron) behind that but receding.
