RE: [Histonet] The best cutting angle[Scanned]

From:Kemlo Rogerson

If I remember, from the dim distant past, you could alter the angle for
different types of tissue; but I can't remember why.

Don't knives with narrower profiles have to be at a shallower angle to
prevent 'chatters' or is that the 'old' type knives that I bear the scars
from on my fingers? Used to sharpen them with wooden sticks and diamond
paste; you slipped now and again, but A&E were very helpful in sewing bits
back on, except for the end of my thumb.

I like 10 degrees, it always works for me.
Good luck,
