    Default .1 Diamond Paste?

    I have heard mentioned and have been thinking about trying .1 micron diamond paste. Does anyone have any experience in using this paste?

    I'd be interested in this as well, but have you seen .1 paste available anywhere? I can't recall seeing a place to get it.

    I just ordered the .5 and .25 diamond paste
    I notice there is also a .05 as well as the .1

    I think getting this fine may be overkill as many find the 0.25 to be a bit too far already.

    Of course when dealing with an abrasive this fine a cheaper alternative is to go outside on a day when the air feels heavy and wave the razor back and forth for 10 passes. That ought to be just about the same as the .05 <g>

    (make sure your neighbors are NOT watching though)

    I have. It's very fine, but very very slow, and expensive. It'll put on a very sharp and smooth edge that'll last a couple of days if you only strop on the leather side - and won't survive the first stropping on the linen side. So you'll have to refresh every couple of days, which gets old fast (did I mention it's slow?). It was amusing for about a week, then I put it away and haven't used it since.

    If you really want to try it then PM me and I'll be glad to sell you my syringe of the stuff.

    It's no more expensiive than the .5 or .25 - 10$ for 5 grams
    But slow.... No Doubt!!!

    I'm not certain is has any value but I will likely order some next time I get the fever. I have .5 & .25 on the way and I've got warm thoughts about a shapton.

    I have a wierd disorder.
