    I have a henckels twin signature series santuko. I read on 2 two different sites one saying it was 15 degree and another saying it was 10 degrees. Does anyone know the real angle? A link to such information

    It really doesn't matter what they put on at the factory.  You bought it, it's your knife; you can sharpen however you want.  Between 15-20 degrees per side is probably normal.  10 degrees per side is pretty agressive for that steel and the edge won't last as long (it's weaker being so acute)

    If it really matters to you, and trust me it should not,  then mark the edge with a sharpie.  If you sharpen at too high or low an angle you will see very quickly

    @Benuser  Do you only start behind the edge at the lowest grit stone you are using for a sharpening session, or do you also do that when you move onto the finer grits?
