Is it possible to set 2 separate angles for the guide rods, for knives with asymmetrical edges?

Is it possible to set 2 separate angles for the guide rods, for knives with asymmetrical edges?

All of our sharpeners allow some degree of independence between the angles on each side. The Generation 3 Pro and Commercial series have independent adjustment via the micro-adjust feature and allows for a difference of up to 4 degrees per side. The rest of our machines allow for completely different angles on each side as they are set individually. All the units except the Wicked Edge Go and the WE100 Precision Sharpener also have the micro-adjust feature for even more control over the angles on each side.
