knife sharpening

From:Marc Slotemaker <>

Hello everybody,

I have a question about knife sharpening. It's a basic
question since we just started into histology. We have
our knives sharpened automatically, and the person who
is doing this for us increases the knife angle each
time time the knife is sharpened, for instance from 35
to 35.25 degrees. Other people say this is rather
strange and the angle should remain constant while
sharpening. Also, what exactly is this angle? is it
the total angle between the two facets of the knife?
thanks in advance
