    So maybe if you had a trapezoidal stone or hone so the angle would change as you raised and lowered the block relative to the edge… Then if you carefully used continuous motion, raising the block as you traversed along the edge, you might come pretty close to matching the angle at the edge. Or not.

    That’s pretty much my original design from the first post.  One being with an angled horizontal to the blade the other with and angle vertical to the blade.  But I think just angling the knife itself (by moving the blade edge at the tip closer to the pivot point of the WEPS) will make for a nice smooth transition from 15 degrees to 12 degrees.  Plus I won’t have to use NEARLY as much diamond spray on my standard WEPS strop compared to a 3″ x 4″ piece of nanocloth 🙂
