Not comfortable to shave? You're obviously not swinging it fast enough...

I'm a bit late to this subject. But it is also my experience that edge refinement is much more important than the angle. I once sharpened a Laguiole pocket knife at 20 degrees with a progression to 10K Chosera's, followed by some stropping, and I had quite a smooth shave.

Glad you did post. Your empirical evidence is very helpful.
I've been putting an 8k Naniwa finish and stopping there. I'm staying
with or close to the mfg's bevels for starters since it was suggested to me
that they know their steels strengths and bevel accordingly. Seemed reasonable to me.
So my thoughts were to fine tune / refine at that angle and see how sharp I could get the knives.
Your post gets me in the ball park and out on the field to play.

Grazie
