I am liking the Wicked Edge, Edge Pro or even a Lansky System for ease of use. I use stones, but, that is a bother.
I see what your saying for sure. The one I'm lookin' at has the "so called" diamond dust wheels. About $100 at Bass Pro. Not sure who makes it yet.
Had a Butcher tell a Friend that if you go with a 17* angle on the blade, it's sharper but will not hold an edge as long. If you go with a 30* angle, it will stay sharper longer but not cut as well.
In a quandary about this.
