Dmt D8xx Sharpener
Question for the sharpeners out there: Is it worth the $ to purchase a DMT D8XX (double-coarse) sharpener? They run between $65-$80.
My logic is that when I sharpen freehand on an Arkansas stone or a fine diamond stone, I find it difficult to match the existing edge angles. But I think I do maintain a consistent angle. So if I used a very aggressive sharpener like the DMT D8XX to "set" my edge, then carry over to a finer stone, I'll be maintaining an angle that is comfortable for me.
Does this make any sense? Any pros or cons out there about the extra coarse DMT sharpener?
Many thanks for all your thoughts.
