What you find is just guessing might be the difference between having a sharp useful knife and one that the edge rolls because of too steep an angle on the steel and it won't hold. I think most people want too steep of an angle I.e. 17-18 degrees and a good working edge 22-24 degrees will work just as we'll and last a lot longer. Depends on the usage of the knife. Sometimes on really good kitchen knives ill put a micro bevel at 24-25 degrees with a few stokes using 15K Chosera stones. Then strop a little on horse butt.
