I honestly don't think toolgrinding should be difficult. But it takes 2 things.. which a lot of people don't have..
You have to apply yourself and make a real effort.
2nd clearance, clearance , clearance.. that is how it works.. the edge doing the cutting has to touch first and be sharp.. everything else needs clearance., and rake, you have to understand rake, so you don't get too much clearance..
It's easy once you understand clearance. .

But you learned to TIG weld so I think, you will find it easy..
