    This is a note of enlightenment for those who are wondering why they are getting inconsistent results from the well regarded Spyderco Sharp-maker.


    Before getting worried & searching google for answers & watching the DVD that came with the sharp-maker for the 50th time. :police:


    Please remember that there are two sets of slots for the rods & if you look closer at them then you will find that one is marked as 40 degrees and the other is 30 degrees. :doh:


    Once you start using the 30 degree slots, you will find that your sharpening inconsistencies will pretty much disappear. :trampoline:

    :dummy: Not that I had this problem of course (said while my nose is growing) :withstupid:

    I had the same issue when I first started with my Sharpmaker. Knowing what your edge is set at and using the right angles on the Sharpmakers makes a world of difference!

    More tips, use light pressure and dont let the tip come off the stone.
