Hardy, can Kilroy not employ the same method you taught me to determine the angle? Put the blade flat on a leather strop, with the sharp edge towards the direction you want to move. Move to blade gently forward on a leather strop till the edge start to bite and then measure the angle between blade and strop.

I am afraid that it takes more than two minutes to do that, and by his own admission, he does not have the patience

Will give it a go.

simplist I would think is just to gradually over time standardise..

seems kitchen lives are around 17/18 degrees.  Leatherman says 16 degrees. 

so around 17 degrees for all cutters

seems 22-25 degrees for things which work hard?  so say 25 degrees for those.  if the blades need 2/3 degrees adjustment - will it be a big deal over time?

what do one do with scissors - i sharpen my wife's old family big naaldwerksker -- was bietjie geroes - so teen 45 grade.  dit lyk egter hopeloos te min.  seems 75-85 degrees --- thats nearly flat?

Sien ek is effens mostert na die maal. Ek sukkel self om "vry-hand" te slyp. Het een middag vinnig hierdie meganisme bymekaar-geskraap nadat ek die soveelste mes se snykant stomper gelaat het as voor ek begin slyp het.

Dis basies 'n skuins hand-rus wat op twee laai-skarniere gly. Die slypsteen kan ek aan elke kant plat op die tafel of werksbank neersit. Die skuins vlak se hoek kan stel so al wat ek basies moet doen is om die mes plat vas te druk op die skuins vlak. Het een van daai rubber nette daarop vasgemaak om beter te kan vasvat. Dit help my baie veral as die mes sy snyvlak 'n sterk kurwe het by die punt. Ek druk die mes dan vas op die skuins vlak en gly dan vorentoe en agtertoe op die slypsteen. Kan maklik my greep en posisie van mes en slypsteen verander sonder om die hoek te versteur.

Ek het ook so 'n stelletjie wat met die lang dun slyp steentjies werk wat jy aan so 'n draad arm vasmaak en die hoek stel deur die draad arm deur die regte gleufie te pas. Ek vind egter dat dit moeilik werk rondom vlakke met baie kurwe en ek is geneig om onewig te slyp.

Yes!

I've got the new version and it works great, although I still prefer the simple Lansky system.
