Re:I tried for it this morning

....sharpened a kamisori on iron oxide on balsa (two coticule process down to chrome ox and then iron ox).

Nice shave, but I could still see the wire edge under the big scope. No pictures, as the big scope doesn't have a computer hooked to it, but I'll get one at some point just for my catalog of edges.

No matter how sharp something is, you can always see the edge either immediately after you use it or as soon as you strop it.

Didn't take a picture of a feather hi-stainless on my setup yet, but I think I may have challenged one for sharpness this morning.
