Hi, could you remix it for a stone with the following dimensions? 180x60x30 ?

Thank you!

I ended up taking yours and stretching it to fit with my stone. I'll print soon and test. Thanks for your design!

I'm interested in your stretched version, can you share it ?

Thanks :)

It's in the remixes https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2763828

I'm supposed to receive the stone today. I'll edit the file if it dosen't fit properly

Whetstone sharpening helper Remix for 180x60x30 Stone

Hi, could you also provide the step file of the baseplate? I really like your design, but my stones are a little larger.

Hey, I just added the baseplate step file. Have fun!

Would it be possible to get this customized for 16 degrees ?

Sure, just uploaded a 16 degrees version. It's just the flat part, since I don't know how wide the slot would need to be for your knife.
Also ended up uploading a step file of the base slider without any cutouts, for easy modifying in your preferred cad software.


a bit of cooking oil on the rails for lubrication and kapow..easy peasy angle cutting on knives

Great design...and 25 degree is "GP" 20 degree is for kitchen knives, 17 degree is for filet (per the Lansky knife sharpening kit flier)

The angle the blade edge is sharpened to is critical to the final use of the blade. As a guideline, Lansky has the following recommendations – and their guide follows these same angles:

17° Angle – A severe angle recommended for razor blades, X-Acto blades, scalpels or similar tools. This angle provides an extremely sharp, but delicate edge.
20° Angle – A commonly used angle for higher quality blades and provides an excellent edge for kitchen cutlery and fillet knives.
25° Angle – The recommended angle for most knives that need a durable, sharp edge. This angle is ideal for hunting and outdoor knives.
30° Angle – An outstanding angle for knives that see the heavy use of cutting cardboard, wire or carpets. Recommended mostly for heavy duty use knives.
