I use a Lansky with medium and fine diamond stones to reprofile bevels to 15° or less, so subsequent edge maintenance can be done with the Sharpmaker. I can get this lower-than-17° angle with most blades (except the narrow Endura 4) by clamping them at the spine. The bevels from this setup are often asymmetrical and a little rough, but the edge is very sharp after diligent work on the Sharpmaker. As I am not wanting a mirror finish I can live with this but would like a better appearance and hopefully a better sharpening experience. Will the KME give me the better bevel appearance I'd like or is it, like the Lansky, subject to operator error? I understand I can get the lower angle by mounting the spherical rod holder upside down. Thanks.
