 Post subject: The edge looks deeper?

I noticed that the edge that new knives come in is very small compared to the edge that I give them on my edge pro. Is that because I don't use my edge pro properly or because I sharpen them on a different angle?

so are the "factory" edges in a smaller angle?

25 dps on a knife will give you a certain "size" edge.

15 dps on the same knife will give you a wider edge.

More acute angle = wider edge
More obtuse angle = narrower edge.

Would the edge appearance depend also on how thin/thick the blade is? Thanks.

Yes Ray, the thinner at knife is at the edge, the smaller an edge bevel would be at a given angle compared to a blade that's thicker at the edge. The edge bevels on my Yuki and Kono HD2 Funy/Gyuto are really small, but they're probably at 15 DPS.
