Re: Can`t get the same edge with the sharpmaker easily...

I think sharpening with the SM is not too far removed from freehand sharpening. Holding the knife blade dead plumb stroke after stroke is not as easy as we may think. Set a carpenter's or engineer's square on your sharpening bench. Grip your knife where you believe it to be plumb, now take it to yo...

Re: Can`t get the same edge with the sharpmaker easily...

Anyone have some tips getting the same edge. On is always wider then the other here. What am i doing wrong? This thing gets razor sharp that is not the problem I have a guided angle sharpening system, even with that it's really hard to get both sides exactly the same. As long as it's razor sharp, I...

Re: Can`t get the same edge with the sharpmaker easily...

Hi toeterbass, there's nothing wrong with your sharpener. I'm not trying to talk you out of getting some benchstones, I have several, but they aren't going to provide a solution to the issue you described that you can't accomplish with the sharpmaker...nor will they get your edges any sharper than ...

Re: Can`t get the same edge with the sharpmaker easily...

My issue may be the same as the OP's and possibly others. My Sharpmakers base angles are off, I have to raise one side up by ~1mm to make them equal. Compound this with triangle stones that are all bowed by varying degrees (which means the angle changes with each turn of the stone...) and it makes ...

Re: Can`t get the same edge with the sharpmaker easily...

Hi toeterbass, if I understand you, it sounds like you are ending up with one edge bevel wider than the other. There are a number of potential reasons for this. The first and simplest is that the knife may have simply been sharpened more on one side than the other so the apex is slightly out of ali...

Re: Can`t get the same edge with the sharpmaker easily...

Thanks for your huge explaination :) But it is razor sharp. Only i cant get bot sides at the same looks I would still look at how you're holding the knife. Unless your Sharpmaker isn't sitting on a level surface, that's the only explanation. Do you have an angle cube? If not you can get an app for ...
