So I have been playing with CBN .5 & .125 for the past couple of weeks, after finishing on a vintage Thuringian. What are the benefits of going to .10 after .125, seems like a big jump?
At .125 I am experiencing what feels almost like razor burn. Not quite burn, but just slight discomfort.
My face cannot take diamond and I was stropping on chrome ox and MAAS polish on a fine weave poly strop, with comfortable results and nice polish on the bevel and edge. I have tried linen, balsa, paper, leather, felt, foam, and poly/nylon, with foam paddle and fine weave poly/nylon giving the best results.
Those of you Schwartzers, (with the t-shirt…ok, you don’t have to have the shirt) who have gone past .125, my question is, are the result worth the extra cost and effort?
I feel like I might be at the limit and will probably order it anyway, but wanted your experienced input.
