These are what I want my blades to do once I sharpen them:

That is an HHT 0, those blades are capable of HHT 3/4

These are both human hairs :



Think there may be a difference in being able to cut them?

I played with this in the early 2000's and quickly realized there was a huge difference in using a hair from my beard vs arm, and there are huge differences between people.

That being said, you can whittle hair off a 600 DMT, the problem most people have is they spend too much time polishing and not enough time sharpening.

Cliff,
That is another thing I am trying to explore:

[www.cliffstamp.com]

Like you pointed out, there is different thicknesses of hairs. I have at least three different head hair thicknesses: super thick, normal, and super thin. It really can't be used from person to person. I have tried to find a metric that will be a suitable metric, push cutting cigarette paper cross grain is the most consistent. I am not sure that this level of sharpness is even noticed in EDC use vs a knife that is sharp enough to tree-top hairs.
Unless you are trying to shave with a straight razor, I don't think it is necessary. Even among the straight razor community, they do not agree that the HHT is a useful test. I can get a blade to completely severe my head hair, in both directions (with the grain and against the grain), with a DMT #325 or Norton Fine India, no stropping. I don't think it is a useful metric. If the blade is that sharp, fine, but I don't think it is something that should be chased after. Same thing with the other 'show' sharpenings.
