    If sharpness is a concern you may try Mr. Thornton's D-23 formula. It calls for 85g of Sulfite...i can't remember the other changes. If you're interested I can look it up. or you can visit his site.

    I've used D-23 with borax afterbath only. Works great in those high-contrast situations I seem to find myself in all the time. I have no idea of sharpness, as I've only used it on 5x7" negatives.

    Nowadays, I would use stand development in FX-2, or Windisch' compensating developer for this. Avoids all thoughts of speed loss (I like shadow detail).

    Barry Thornton's formula uses 6.5g of metol and 80g of sulphite in bath A plus 12g of Sodium metaborate in bath B. This is as good as any other 2B around IMHO and cheap/easy to mix.
