This model shows a cutting angle of 15 to 30 degrees; the smaller model says 40 and 50 degrees. I am confused by the big difference.
I want a sharpener for kitchen knives, scissors and lawnmower blades. Which unit makes more sense given the big difference in cutting angle?

The smaller model, item #156115 uses two guides while the Ken Onion Edition has an a fully adjustable guide in increments of 1degree from 15 to 30 degrees. The smaller edition with the two guides is not adjustable in increments of 1 degree but provides a 50° guide for hunting and outdoor knives (25° per bevel); and a 40° guide for thinner blades and kitchen knives (20° per bevel).
You can sharpen a lawnmower blade on either product. See smaller edition below.

The Onion Edition has more power and versatility. There are also wide angle slots on the guide. The small angles are on the top. I like the Onion much better. It has enough power to do the heavier chores.

The Ken onion unit uses 1/2 the total angle of the blades angle. This angle is more commonly used by professionals, like Ken Onion. Therefore 25 deg on the KO unit is equal to the 50 (25x2) on the smaller home unit.
