the working distance for the high magnification is extremely close with the scope I have, and your camera distance is a lot more practical.

At the lower magnification, it's a little easier to work with, though. At 600x, you can pretty much only get something that's within a thousandth or two of the surface - what's in focus is a split second flash when using the coarse adjustment.

It's all new to me. Makes me appreciate what the $12 ($11, whatever) scope is capable of getting in terms of razor edges. All I need to know from them in terms of whether or not they're finished. There's only one thing that vexes me a little bit, and that's kamisori. They should come out sharper than a western razor, but they are more work and I have to resort to chromium oxide to get to that. I'm hoping I can figure that out with the new setup. The "secret" is always trivial.

(of note is the fact that I can pull used kamisori out of japan for $10 each, and someone said to me once "those are generally made for export", which is code for the natives really not favoring them that much, or at least not widely. I can shave in five minutes with them, but whereas you can use a single straight razor for your entire life, the kamisori will eventually need to be ground and I doubt the average homeowner has the skills).
