    Apparently Ace Hardware has a fancy new laser measuring mechanical sharpener that theoretically could give the "scientifically perfect" angle of my Lucha's blade.
    I was carrying it; it didn't need sharpening per-say, but they offered a free trial. The new edge was equal if not sharper than both my up-to 8k grit wetstone, and/or my Ken Onion worksharp, but the price of precision is a lame final edge polish; as I tend to like a bright crisp edge. So i brought my Chimera and Metalmark back because they both have tricky blade geometry (Metalmark is MAJOR PIA, Hom is just curvy enough to warrant laser precision.)

    Really a neat tool that would probably be better to pay for services vs buying the machine because bank.

    First one was free for me, as they were promoting the idea, then I liked it and came back to get some laser precision on my Hom (sacrilegious? ) I think around $8

    A big fan of new tech improving old, kinda liked the design so I ran with it. Just wish they had a laser that could work my favorite sword.
