The I.O. Shen sharpener cuts the knives at the 15 degree angle which is standard for Japanese knives where they’re normally made of a harder steel which allows them to keep this sharper edge.
Henckels are cut to a 22 degree angle which is standard for German knives where they’re made of a softer steel.
Although I’ve sharpened my Henckels, Wusthof & even some really cheap knives with my I.o. Shen sharpener and they all come out super sharp, they just need sharpening more often but this is easy to do with this type of sharpener.
