As long as it s something close to 25 degrees you should be good. The angle isn t all that important..

What grit did you sharpen to and what was your technique?

I sharpened it with a 1000/4000 grit wet stone, to 25 and then a 30 degree micro bevel.

Thanks for the advice everyone, I really appreciate it. I might go back and re-sharpen with out the micro bevel. The only issue i’m having is that I can’t seem to stop it from catching on the material! I’ll let y’all know how I get on :-)
