I saw that Laser, and I'm glad it went to an appreciative forum owner! I almost pulled the trigger on it. Based just on the performance of my AEB-L Artifex (which I've owned a very brief period and which I'm going to gift to a friend who does not own a single decent knife), I'm sure the Laser will bring you big big smiles. I made a 3-step bevel at 5, 10, and 15 degrees, and there is no resistance with such a thin blade. I'm now a big fan of AEB-L steel. Thinking about putting another in the kitchen for guest-abuse.
