How well will it sharpen CPM S110V and Maxamet? I have one and I have both steels.
Good luck and stay sharp! :D

I have set the bevels on both of those steels with the diamond rods at 30 degrees followed by microbeveling both of those steels with the brown rods at 40 degrees and have been happy with the results. You can get a super sharp edge that way and it is quick and easy.

I have theories why the fine rods are not a good choice for these steels but it gets complicated and maybe theoretical.

This is an excellent method if the sharpmaker is your only sharpening equipment.

I think there are certainly steels out there that work better with a polished edge, compared to steels that work better with toothy edges.
