Mines not as thin as J David’s but much thinner than stock. May try 20 degrees and go from there. I have 400, 1000 and 6000 Stones. Will the steel handle all the way to 6000 ?
Sure

I sharpen mine at probably 13°to 15° per side. Mine is 61.5 rhc and can hold that angle well enough.

Same here. About 15.

I had no idea they were that hard. Good to know.
I think they vary in hardness, I tested mine while the handle was off.
