    A couple of things to try (SWAG):

    1. Disable Antivirus. A long shot, but maybe.

    2. Update the drivers for the device. Technical and annoying to do if you do not know how. Might help.

    I use a hollow grind because:



    It is what I own to sharpen; I own a Tormek so it will leave a hollow grind.

    I did not try sitting in the chair facing backwards, but there's a definite curve on the chair back.
