This product is not useful for inspecting knife blades. It is virtually impossible to keep in focus.
It takes a little practice but once you get the hang of it the magnifier works well. Suggestion: Use something to steady the magnifier. I use the side of a cutting board. Also put the knife on a table top so it doesn't shake in your hand.
Tried the MicroBright and I'm not impressed at all. The magnification and focus is fine but it's very difficult to use. The inverted image in a pain, you move up the image moves down, you move left it moves right. Any rocking/movement of the magnifier or knife and you lose focus and it's not easy to hold it flat to a knife. A loupe is much easier to use to me.
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Very grateful such a dedicated and informative group of people provide excellent steel at competitive prices with superior customer service! A million thank yous!
