I guess once the edge is SET you can use diamond by hand for SHARPENING only, which it sounds like what you're doing. But I do want the extra assurance that I properly set my angles with a file, once, before starting all that... and that is what a base tool supposedly lets you do.
You're right, no "setting", only "sharpening" for me. I'm going with what the manufacturer claims for base and side edge bevel. Boy, will I be pissed if I find out they lied to me !
