    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.

    You can sharpen down to 14.5dps /strop at 12.5dps if wanted.
    Homemade, i still have to shave a bit off to get to the heel and paint it to look kinda cool. I like it over my tormek small knife holder already. :
    No handle compression or rotation.

    Thanks man i wouldnt say ingenious but appreciate it. Yep, i made that. You almost had me writting a page long reply which i just erased lol. The end result is to have 4 attachments that are interchangeable that help fill in the holes for me. Maybe 1 additional off the wall one too

    Wow. That looks great! 4.5 dps, wow! Have you sharpened any larger knives in it or is it specifically for straight razors?

    Thanks mark. Imade it just for straight razors because i was having problems with my hand or paddles hitting the vise while i was doing the heel of the razor.its made from thick stock so it could be clamped down tightly without bending. For knives i use the W.E. low angle adapter. Heres the first one that came out really nice but i forgot to off center the vise.
