Thread: How do you sharpen your microbevel?

    Sure.
    You can see it with #1000.
    Its the angle which reflect light.

    I am very poor to write a tutorial.

    May be you can write one.

    So get 4 knives.

    1. Dull knife
    2. Knife with microchip
    3. Knife with burr or wire
    4. Perfect sharpened knife

    On a sunny day go outside or go to balcony or go near a window where you have direct sunshine.
    Face your body in direction of the sun.
    Hold the knife in front of you with the edge side up at a height of your navel or chest (at your convenient height).
    Adjust the angle of the edge with moving your wrist vertically slowly that the sunshine reflect at the edge of your knife.
    You will see the difference of reflection on these 4 knives (It is very hard for me how the reflection is in English so this part you must help me)

    Maybe this method is obsolete now. But its handy if you do not have a microscope or a loupe to inspect the edge.

    A little magnification goes a long way!
