academic question-- since i don't even have a surface grinder -- or a kitchen knife.

is it possible to sharpen kitchen/pocket/non-serated knives on a surface grinder? what would that setup look like??

Why? They don't sharpen them that way at the factory. They use belt sanders of decreasing grits.The shape of a knife blade doesn't lend itself to being sharpened by a machine that only has linear travel.
