If you want a mirror finish on carbide why not do it yourself with diamond hones? It would seem a simple matter to go from the usual 600 grit finish to whatever with diamond of the right particle size.

What are you milling with this carbide that this mirror finish makes any difference? Light sanding gets my carbide milled profiles to where I need the refinement to be for finishing. Do you suppose that shops don't refine carbide edges to the degree you desire because nobody else sees the benefit?

I see the need for sharpening. This "razor edge" is not going to remain a razor edge for very much use. How many feet of wood gets milled before this extra sharp edge leaves the same surface as a fresh 600 grit edge?
