Hair Whittling Sharp

Post by Drafter » Sat Dec 02, 2017 9:16 pm

Ok I was playing around cutting hair and I have got a edge that will whittle free hanging hair and and also tree top it but I have to play with it it won't do it every time. I used 140 diamond 400diamond 400 ep 1000 ep 2000 ep tape then .5 micron diamond spray. What else do I need to get a better hair whittling edge

I think you have the answer though how often do you find yourself whittling hair with a kitchen knife?
Getting an edge that sharp is more practical on a thin fine edge of a straight razor.

I see no value in hair whittling it was just cool that it was possible. I like around 2000 grit edge for my purposes

You can continue the progressionn to finer compounds past 0.5 . I have compounds as much as 100 times finer.

Yeah, what Ken said!! We use his 0.05 compound to cut molecules and if necessary we go to the 0.005 compound to split atoms. LOL!

I assume my grit progression is fine then I kind of thought I may have to big a jump between the 2000 ep and .5 spray so what's the next level I need to jump too?

.25 .125 or .1. You could skip the .125 My preference is for smaller jumps (.25).
