    If it sounds bad, I add water.

    My friends forschner screeches unless It's sharpened at the bottom of a swimming pool.
    Seriously though, you can hardly keep the stones wet enough to keep that banshee from singing.

    I thought when sharpening both sides that if they sound the same it indicates your sharpening at the same angle.

    I don't think I ever experienced this. I get the stainless scratchy sound but it's not loud like you guys are describing.

    :Well, Dave, I guess that means that you are doing something wrong!

    I've had this happen too, but it seems to require just the right combination of water, pressure, grip on the blade and speed/type of sharpening movement. -kind of like making the rim of a wine glass sing by rubbing a damp finger on it.
    If i change any of the elements, it stops.
