    I chose 100 grams to reflect Mike's opinion.

    After that, I became more reliable in my measurement results.

    I would have liked to see a follow up right after the first test showing the same sharpness. I would assume the pre-strung pieces you can buy would be close to the same tension even though they are not approved for testing sharpness?

    At that time, I didn't have a freshly sharpened blade and didn't test it for consistency. But you will be able to see it in the video I will upload.
