nothing. I took 26 powders I'd been sent and tested them against
each other for particle size, debris, dye and grit. If your powder
has improved in quality since I was given a sample, send me a new one
and I will re-evaluate.
I can't report on anyting I don't have. I can't do anything but count
under the lens what I'm seeing. And, I don't do anyone favors.
Everyone is treated equally.
If I'd announced before I did the tests that I wanted people to send
me powder to be tested, there's no way I could have offered reliable
results. People could have cleaned up samples and sent me something
skewed. I tested everything I HAD, without altering anything. I
reached into the Sharkiyya bag and pulled out a pinch from the middle
and tested it. I didn't change anything from what I had.
I thought, all considered, Sharkiyya and Kimia came up pretty clean
compared to most! I've also posted photographs of both that I've
sifted, and noted that I lost plenty of the samples through the sifter.
I can post microscope slides of the powders if you doubt my results.
