So, watching this video

Clay mentioned he started at 10 degrees, and works his way out (up a degree at a time). But from what I can tell (I don't have mine yet, it'll be here on Friday), the degree markings/notches start at 15. So... is this just a matter of mounting the knife in the top spot, and using an angle cube?

Thanks!

Essentially, yes. The taller the knife is, and the higher up in the clamp you have it, the lower the angle will be. I set one of my cleavers in the top just to see what kind of angle I could get and it was 7 degrees. On the other hand, I cant get my Leatherman's blade lower than about 18 degrees, because it just isnt tall enough to let the stones clear the clamp below that.

That's pretty much what I figured. So, did you use an angle cube to get that measurement, or your phone, or...?

I was curious about my leatherman blade... when you do it, do you remove the blade from the leatherman, or just mount the whole thing?

Thanks!

I use an angle cube for all my measurements.

As for the Leatherman, I just mount the whole thing. It would be better to remove the blade but I cant be bothered :P It still turned out well, though.

Makes sense. So, I just ordered an angle cube. Was going to try using my iPhone, but the case is a pain to get on and off, and I am not sure how accurate it would be IN the case.

Can't wait! Must. Sharpen. Everything. =D

btw, awesome edge on your leatherman. What progression is that? And what angle (18?)?
