Not sure why you must have CBN, Al oxide wheels do fine for me.

You don’t have to have CBN wheels, but they are cleaner (nothing flaking off the wheels), they run cooler, repeatability is better (the wheel diameter doesn’t change), they are available in different profiles (e.g. radius edge, etc.), and they are safer (won’t crack and explode). And (IMNTBHO) they do a better job of sharpening your tools.
