SHUN knives Chipping while sharpening

I Feel that my angle is about 15 degrees.. but maybe it is less so I am getting a thinner edge.. I am going to try to integrate your suggestions plus the videos cowboyardee suggested.. thank you all. I will let you know how it goes.

JB I will try to get them up tomorrow. Cell phone won't zoom in close enough to get a clear picture.

Well I could have used to tight an angle but rather feel I made the edge to thin and or didn't apply even pressure like cowboyardee was suggesting

I am fairly new to hand sharpening. And yes it is the VG 10 steel. The small chips are occurring sometimes in the curve and sometimes in the middle of the blade.
Your suggestion may be the case... Maybe I am unconsciously applying uneven pressure.
Let me watch the videos you suggested.. Most of what I have learned about sharpening has been off youtube. I have also heard that I might be making the blade to thin. Thank you. I will let you know..

I have some Shun Classic kinves and I have tried sharpening them with an 800/4000 King wet stone. I find that I am getting small chips in the knife edge. I believe I have the proper angle and I only am sharpening about 10 strokes a side. can someone help enlighten me?
