no earthly clue - WE is locked at 24* left side and 23* right side for fare sharpening.

i have not moved it in over 4 weeks.

all angles change by height of blade in vice..........eyeballing the shun it was small, maybe like: 21 or 22*
.
take a look. - maybe it will keep the chipping down some like that........but what do i know...zip.
.
comments welcome

I have several Shun knives including this one. It may look odd to you but belive me it is very comfortble in your hand. I sharpen all Shun Ken Onion knives at 16 deg. per side and they cut like butta (they really get sharp). :)

Yes there are those that like the Ken Onion series & those that don't I have the Santoku (the standard one) and yes 16Ëš per side is correct although the last time I sharpened my I did it around 10Ëš on the right side & around 20Ëš on the left I have thinned mine a little as well although I need to set the thinning bevel a little lower since I rolled the blade when it was new not knowing about the proper use of Japanese blades so I sharpened the roll out . This is why it could do with a bit more thinning it is razor sharp but with the blade a little finer behind the cutting bevel it will slice better.

Looks as if the owner has removed part of the heal of the knife good job where was that nasty chip? You have kept the line of the knife nicely so it is hard to tell where the damaged section was.
Your right with the higher bevel it will be a little more resilient to abuse so less chipping with a bit of luck.

That is an interesting edge grind (10/20). I can't get to 10 on my current set up or, I would try it out. But, I am very satisfied with the 16 deg. Per side. I really have no problem slicing with it and it holds the edge well for me. B)
