global confusion

so… i started reading knife threads and now realize that the reason we don't often choose the global knife we own is that we have undoubtedly ruined the edge. i had no idea it was made with a slight convex turn on the edge. (it was a gift.) in fact, i found a global company-produced video on youtube that showed Tsuchida-san ("Mr. Global") sharpening blades - again, no mention of the slight curve in the global edge. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=te1KI...

Now i'm wondering - can i get that edge back if i use the global-made sharpener? (http://www.surlatable.com/product/PRO...
)i see people warning against ruining the edge, but i have not found any tips on how to return it to the correct edge on these knives after they are badly sharpened, which seems to be too easy to do! surely that is what this little 3 section sharpener does? or is it just another convenient way to mash up the edge on the global?
