This article shows what a edge looks like under a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) http://www.razoredgeknives.com/coarse-apexed-vs-fine-apexed-edge/. The photographer and scientist who goes by the name Todd, wrote a blog post some years back called, The Science of Sharp. If you are interested in the details, visit and read through his blog (Here). It is images and dedicated works like these which prove our modern sharpening techniques are some of the best in the business. M1rror Edge uses optical microscopes to view and the latest computer technology to measure and inspect edge angles. We "frown" upon time tested but "subjective" sharpness tests like the "Shaving Arm Hair" test. Although, they are fun to do. Through observation, M1rror Edge can make sure you "stay-sharp" and we get to keep our arm hair! Personal education and the education of the public are one of the missions of M1rror Edge Sharpening Service.
