    About the edge of the edge looking especially shiny, paraphrasing, which was mentioned earlier...

    I use the Radio Shack 100x microscope, and have spent a lot of time viewing my blades. The same shiny "edge of the edge" occurs with my razors. My viewing setup is a goose neck lamp, with a lump of play dough sitting on a book, with the razor pressed into the dough to hold it steady. This allows me to view the razor without shake, but allows me to easily move the blade. Using this technique, it is easy to rotate the blade to put the optimal light and the focus up the blade, away from the cutting edge. When I do this, the gleen on the shiny edge moves up the blade until it reaches the edge of the bevel.

    Because of this, with my edges, I don't think the edge is any more polished than anywhere else on the bevel. It's just the portion of the blade that is highlighted by the light source. The corollary statement, I believe, is that I am viewing the rounding of the bevel.

    I suspect this applies to the photos above.

    The light source on the microscope those images were taken with comes directly out of the microscope objective lens itself through the miracle of beam splitters, and other such high falooting optics wizardry...just FYI...

    I actually bought a batch of six just razors with big chips out of the blades. Not quite as bad as the previous post.

    How exactly do blades get chipped like this? An angry wife maybe!
