Wow, thank you Galley for that in-depth response. I will be taking another look at the way I use the edge pro. Everything you said makes a lot of sense and I see it solving my issues with the system. I appreciate your time.
I have carbon and stainless clad and monosteel knives. It doesn't matter all that much to me. Not nearly as important as shape, curve, thickness, hardness, ease of sharpening.
It's about looks. Some cladding is easier to maintain like a wide bevel or monosteel. Stainless clad is a little more work to make it not look like butt after thinning. Then again I use my knives and i dont care what they look like unless im reselling.
