    +1.

    Still pretty darn impressive. If I tried to test sharpness like that, I'd lose a handful of hair and half an ear.

    +1, even after finding out the truth, I would have taken it to the grave. If Jon had posted the truth on the forum himself, I would have called him a liar, a cheat, and a thief. And put a curse on his knuckles to grow overly thick hair causing a hindrance to his sharpening skills.

    You just have to tell it in such a way that others will embellish the truth for you. Then you never tell the story again.

    It looks just like testing it on your arm hair only it's the back of the head. I think a lot of Japanese folk just don't have enough arm hair to make it work, lol. They take the knife to the back of the head and run the blade down lightly so that it catches some hair.
