Yeah, that guy is definitely overboard (more "perv" about sharpening than me, at least in display of it) than me, but I'll admit I stopped reading his blog pretty early on. The things he was showing had already been shown by alex gilmore (with razors) with an optical scope and the magnification was maybe too close for anyone to learn anything useful.

Since we're talking about him, I went out and looked at his page and did finally see something I always thought wasn't true - the sentiment that working a japanese slurry "breaks the particles" down into something really fine. He has pictures of the silica particles showing that they pretty much stay the same size, and the non-cutting part of the mixture breaks down. I always figured that we could dull those particles and maybe clog the stone surface with them a little bit, or dull the stone surfaces, but silica isn't particularly friable or it wouldn't feel so dull so quickly.

(only interesting in the context of sharpening razors where you take advantage of that dullness).

I've gotten nowhere saying that on razor forums, but I don't have an issue with that. I rarely believe other people without examining something or thinking about it and don't expect anyone to believe anything that I say (but still get annoyed when they don't!!).
