Yes! A bit on the high end though...gradually one can achieve it.
I still remember once I asked a trainer to show me how to hand grind
the twist drill, he refused...that was 30 years ago in my school days.
I made my own tool and cutter jig not only able to sharpen end mills
and able to sharpen twist drills the Tormek method, getting the 4
facet faces. After tested it, it's very wear resistance than normal
