I'm wanting to do a basic edge tune on some Bonafides for the first time and am wondering what angle these are factory set at. I read 1/3 somewhere--is that one-third of one degree? If I'm not wanting to change the edge angle can I use a diamond stone and sharpen these at 0 degrees, or is 1 degree (both bottom and side) closer to the factory setting? Also, from what I've read, a diamond stone is enough for a good sharpening so long as the edges are in good shape?
If I do want to change the edge angle and don't have a planer (I think that's the tool), can I just go at it with my edge guide at 2 degrees on the side and 1 degree on the base? Obviously I've got some things to learn. Thanks!
