dans black - 700 feet

David Weaver
At the start (edge is finer than it looks. More stropping needed than with the diamonds, but not enough to round over the edge):

at 340 feet

At terminus - 700 feet - pretty again at the edge

The edge looked better in pictures here than in the ward (I didn't post those pictures) test at the outset of each (Before wear). This iron is slightly harder than the ward, and it seems to take a better edge off of the stone and with less deflection or ragged appearance from stropping.
