Nice set up Tom! I have a Worksharp, but only use it on narrow bevels, and for me, it works well. Don't know if I was holding my tongue wrong or what, but i've had only bad luck on flats.

I have a Veritas large, a LN small and several vintage (both open and closed). I always seem to grab my vintage #71, why I don't know, except it was the one I learned on and it feels very natural.
