You should keep the edge angles the same for each knife.

Is the whetstone just a stone? Or is it part of some device that sets the angle?

Purely a whetstone like you see here: https://www.procook.co.uk/product/pr...e-6002000-grit

I just heard german knives will have a different angle of blade than japanese.

Also bought some of these rail guides to help. think they've been designed by global so wonder if they'll work as well on the Welch:

or am i massively overthinking this?
