If you are talking about the angle guides, HERE is the website with instructions how to determine bevel and micro bevel based on the profile of the blade (parallel or inclined) as well as how to use a hone or stone.

I ordered the hone cones from Amazon for $9 or $10

[QUOTE=thirdeye;4207888]I posted about these spring loaded angle guides in the other recent sharpening thread, but using them to keep your knives honed will also help on belt life. Even when touching up with the KO, I use only the 4X and 3 to 5 passes on each side.




Thanks for posting the link to the videos showing how they work.

Bought my WSKO on the bargain last year as well. Love it.
Just got back from a week at a rented lake cabin with a "Fully Stocked Kitchen".
Luckily I sharpened all fillet knives before we left as they ended up being our kitcken knives for the week.
Unfortunately, they weren't needed for fillet knives.

I got one last year. Really like the thing. Very easy to get a very sharp edge.

If anyone is looking to buy one and is a KCBS member, don't forget to use your discount code. You can find it by logging into the KCBS website and going to member benefits. I won't paste it here, but it's a significant discount!

Lots of good features, I like the 10° setting and the added surface area of a 1" wide belt.

Although I didn't buy that specific item, I got the KO sharpener AND the additional blade grinding attachment with the 1"x18" belt system. It allows you to sharpen the full length of the knife blade from the bolster to the tip. There's no guide to interfere, preventing a full length swipe like the plain KO sharpener. And it won't round off the tip of the knife like the plain KO will if you're not careful

My Onion arrived today. Did all my kitchen knives (already "sharpened") on the fine belt and they now are "furly" dangerous. Did a few other dull ones by the process advised and all worked just as advertised. I think I finally found the system I will stay with.

KO Worksharp is a great piece of equipment. I tried honing steels but could never get them to work properly, and often would throw away 6 month old knives because they were dull and useless to me. After being able to sharpen them with the Worksharp I started watching a ton of YouTube videos about sharpening / honing, and ended up buying one of these things to help with honing.




Now I use my Worksharp about once every 6 months, and just use the honing tool to keep the blade aligned properly. These 2 tools combined have made my life much easier and safer...trimming meat with a dull blade is a difficult chore and also dangerous from slipping.
