    Default Some sharpness tests

    Here's another video I made of some non-standard sharpness tests I use. These are tests that don't require one to develop a feel for them. They're more objective than subjective. They only really tell you if the razor is dull or not, they don't really let you know how sharp a razor is.

    Again, it's available in HD.

    Awesome, Jason. Light reflection is the only way to see the edge with the naked eye and your interpretations are excellent. You taught me something very useful and definitive here today.

    AFAIK the 'pin test' is new. I actually use my fingers to feel for a wire edge. I just thought something with a sharp point or edge would would be easier for those who can't feel a wire edge like I'm able to.
