Ugh kind of regretting the lansky sharpener atm...Sharpened my fixed blade of 404a steel, thought I got it good, was able to shave arm/leg hair easy enough. I found it odd during sharpening that one side required much more work to get the angle set on the blade, but I used the permanant marker method, and it took it all off.
Either way, the other day I went to cut a rubber hose at work, and now its dull as piss on one side, and what feels relatively sharp on the other. Not sharp enough to shave though. Im assuming the manufactuer used two different angles on the blade sides?
