I have Global 8" chef's knife that needs work - but I'm struggling a bit to set the angle (global site says 10-16 degrees) given that I don't have the ball joint/riser setup.

Ideas? Jill

You can raise it up in the clamp as high as possible while still getting a good grip on it. Given the width of the blade, you'll be well below the 15 degrees listed on the bar. If you can measure the width for me, I can tell you more closely what angles you'll be able to achieve. I did a little searching for the specs on it but didn't find the width (from spine to edge listed.) I did find a nice write-up on it on Z-Knives site: Global GF-33 Forged Chef's Japanese Kitchen Knife Review

Welcome Jill,

Nice set of knives! I have Wusthof's too. But not a huge cook. I like cutting more than the cooking.

Welcome to the forum Jill. I hope all is well with you and your sharpener . I have found a wealth of information from the people on this forum.

Hi, my name is James. Finally got a wicked edge as a Christmas gift. I have been lurking around and reading on the forum for a few months. I collect Case knives and usually have a Benchmade in my pocket as an EDC. I love to fish and have the perfect new toy to keep me occupied till fishing starts up this spring.
I need to catch more fish so I have an excuse to resharpen my fillet knives :-D
