I'm just talking thru my rare-end here but maybe it's because cabbage has that enzyme (ie the one that can turn your blade black) and there's something going on chemically at the microscopic level? Ditto avocadoes and other stuff.

I can't really measure the angle but is like probably 10 degrees or so for the main bevel and ~12 for the micro.. I do see a very thin shinogi line if I look closely enough.
I too use to not put a micro bevel on, but then my edge didn't last past a shift... Pissed me off haha..
