    VG10 angle reccomendations

    I just got my first blade made out of VG10 - I'm getting a sharpmaker next week, as freehand I'm ok, and my clamp systems get in the way below about 20 degrees on pocket knives (per side, not inclusive).

    Anyways, I like sharp knives, and I like using sharp knives. I do touch up my blades daily, be it just needing a little stropping, or a little stone work.

    Does anybody have any recommendations for a back angle on VG10? I'll be utilizing a 30* inclusive for the actual edge. I've got a miter box, so I can easily make a wedge to get whatever angle I need. I do strop when I'm done with honing the blade, and will be getting the ultrafine stones to go along with the sharpmaker.
