    A great way to establish an angle that is close to yours is to mark the edge with a permanent marker. That makes it easier to see where you are removing material.

    That knife is going to take a LOT of time on the Sharpmaker to fix.

    Get yourself a good knife stone and with a lot of elbow grease you can fix it. You'll be surprised, it won't take as long as you think.

    That edge needs complete reprofiling brother. I hope you have the course diamond stones for the sharpmaker! Set the back bevel with the 30deg setting and then set your micro bevel with the 40 deg setting. The sharpie trick is your friend and a loupe or magnifying glass so you can see in detail what you are doing to the edge. Good luck and keep us posted.

    That is going to require a stone because there is a lot of metal that has to be removed. A Sharpmaker is a great touch up tool, but it's not going to do that job.
