Would the riser and arms of the Pro Pack 2 upgrade be able to allow shallower angles on a smaller blade? On a GEC's pen knife, the lowest it can go is about 20-21, and was hoping the riser would help bring it below 19 without completely grinding off the corners of the clamps.

I'm thinking it wouldn't help much, since the clamp itself is in the same spot relative to the blade, at which point I was looking at the other clamp option, the low angle adapter.

I'd rather not buy both of them for the sake of trying, but I have some SAK blades I'd like to do at a shallower angle, primarily the pruner and electrician blades.

Just quoting for a bump. Anyone have some advice? :)

Sure. If you want lower angles, go for the Low Angle Adapter.

You also might want to take a look at Tormek's Small Knife Adapter that I mentioned in the first page of this thread.
