Hi I was wondering if anyone experienced with these type of systems could give their opinion and overview on which would be better at producing a perfectly even bevel all the way to the tip and create a fine needle tip. From my understanding the edge pro style sharpeners have an advantage with being able to constantly adjust the knife to stay even with the shelf and allowing you to keep the edge perpendicular to the stone so the angle stays the same along the whole blade. On something like the wicked edge or kme the blade stays in place so that the belly and tip part of the edge are closer to the origin of the base then the rest of the blade. Would this make the tip more obtuse? In practice does this actually affect edge consistency or are you able to clamp the knife in a way that this is not an issue?
