    I have a problem

    I agree. You should start by working on a fortnight set (2 weeks) and work up to a month's worth. Seriously, they are all beautiful. I only have one.

    Viewing the edge of a straight

    I sometimes use this trick and you do not need magnification. You take the blade and have a good light source then rotate side to side and front to back while looking at the blade. You will see a light reflected from the bevel and then rotate the blade so you see the reflection of the other...
