    Good afternoon, All-

    I am a brand new WE user and have a question about single bevel sharpening.  How do I correctly use the sharpener for my Japanese knife with a single bevel?  When I make a burr on one side with a 15 degree angle, what is the process to remove the burr on the other side when my angle can only go down to 15 degrees?  I hope I’m explaining this correctly, as I am new to this.  Thanks for all your help!

    Sincerely,

    Brent

    When I sharpen my single bevel Japanese knives I use the W.E. stone hand-held, not on the guide rod, to debur the flat side of the clamped knife. This gives you the stone control needed for that situation.

    Here’s a video made by Clay describing this method:
