Does anybody out there know the "grit equivalent" of stropping on newspaper? Or at least an educated guess?

Depends on what page you're using, sports, weather, comics, the stock market page will actually rise and fall grit levels on a daily basis. A more educated guess is around 0.1 micron, or at least that seems to be the consensus of some.

Traditional black ink gives a very aggressive, toothy edge, in 1micron area. But as always, it won't last.

Thanks guys. At least I see a range, but 0.1 micron to 1.0 micron is a 10x difference. Other thoughts out there? ;)

PLUMBER <> I can't answer your question... accurately, but I can say, in my experience, I always found the abrasive/polishing variance to be in the paper quality rather than the ink. Some papers are thicker gauge then others, and the fiber structure associated thereto seemed to create a finer or rougher substrate to polish with. I guess the ink could play a part, too, but if so, a 1/10th as to 1 micron range is a really inconsistent "range" to even consider. You think?
