Inspect Your Edges
One of the difficulties with sharpening is the small scale involved. All the action is taking place in a relatively tiny area, and it is difficult to see what you are really doing. Feeling for a burr with your fingers is well and good, but it can't always tell you about imperfections or subtle damage to an edge. A good magnifier lets you get a close look at your edge to inspect it, and is a valuable aid to get the most out of your sharpening.
Quality in a Small Package
This loupe's 10x magnification brings the small scale of an edge into clear view, and the 21mm (13/16") diameter lens is generously sized. It uses a triplet lens to reduce distortion and give a crisp resolution. The folding design protects the lens from damage when not in use, and the included pouch will keep in safe and clean in storage.
