I decided to have a little fun with my own little pocket knife, a Spyderco Bob Lum made in Japan made from VG10 steel, thought I would try and give this little knife the same level of sharpness as a straight razor, I have in my knife sharpening kit stones going from 400 right through to a Naniwa 12K, well all I will say the knife was finished on the Naniwa 12K stropped on leather and yes indeed it did pass the HHT and I now have a shave ready pocket knife.
Only three on the hones today, the Puma Gold looks to have been heavily restored, not sure if the edge will hold up, well the only way to answer that question will be to shave with it a few times, I've informed the owner so we shall see.
