The full KME kit comes with 9 6 3 1 0.5 and 0.1 micron diamond films. Wondering if this full progression is necessary, or whether I could get most of the benefit while skipping around a bit, 9-3-1 or 6-3-0.5 or similar. Supposedly 9 micron is equivalent to 1800 grit, so it would seem pointless to go from the 1500 grit diamond hone to the 9 micron film, unless there are additional qualities of the film that I’m not understanding. Mostly just playing around and trying to get a mirror edge, I realize (thanks to all the fine posts here) that a lower grit edge is often more practical. Wondering what folks experience here is, and whether I’m just shooting myself in the foot trying to save time (and money).
