Hi Todd, That presharpened carbalt graver we ship installed in the handpiece is the 116 degree Universal point. It is the clear template. Other popular profiles are the Detailing 96 degree, 105 degree and the flat/knife templates.

Hi, I've only been presharpening the 116 and offering it on the site. I don't like to sharpener either. Here is the process page about sharpening with the templates. https://www.engravingschool.com/priv...0Sharpener.htm
