... or sharp, tough, strong, hard edge! I can't remember if this link came from Wood Central or another interest. It reviews heterogony vs homogeny in razors and why they dull cutting a much softer material. It seems finer, homogenous steel works better for shaving too, a key point in the research findings.

Thanks to Wiley I felt comfortable in posting this link as possibly useful. More so than scrambling the gears. Carry on.
