DMC <> Use the sharpie trick to determine it if you must, or more appropriately, sharpen it to wherever you want it.

They do the knives by eye and feel and they vary from knife to knife just a little depending on who is on the sharpener that day. As Melampus said use a sharpie and paint the edge and then adjust your angle until you remove the entire mark to find the right angle.

Well, if one has an EdgePro, exact numbers are built in to the system. People often like to know what the angle is. Problem with that is, 15 degrees should be 15 degrees....but it's never that simple.

Sharpie works so much better.

I agree with everyone. Towards the end of using my EP, I was doing the sharpie trick. Paired with the drill stop collar, I found it to be the quickest way to sharpen. If I was going by the EP angles, I found that I would've had to reprofile at least 3/4 of the knives I sharpened. I usually stuck with the factory angle. Saves wear on the stones too.
