So today I used some of kens diamond films to sharpen a ZDP-189 Endura , for a customer. My progression went like this.

140 Atoma , 220 , 1k shapton , 15u , 9u , 3u , 1u , 0.5u HD Diamond Films , Stropped with CBN on Roo , 0.5u , 0.25u , 0.125u , 0.1u
At 12DPS its nice and sharp.

The HD Diamond Films are excellent , and I highly recommend them. I have some more coming so that I can replace the entire bottom half of the progression above with Diamond Films.

Nice work Sadden! Two questions:

1) Are the films mounted on glass blanks?

2) How long did the entire process take?

It should have taken about 3 hours ( I work slowly) , but I had to drop all the way back down to the 15u film because I grabbed it accidentally instead of the 1u film , I actually spent about 5 or so hours on it.

They are indeed mounted on float glass.
