The answer, Nothing! I've used it on a couple of knives and a Faithfully 6000 grit diamond sharpening block. More material came off the guide than the knife so, as I feared, I've got a nice flat on the side of the guide and as a consequence, the angle changes. Maybe I'm using it incorrectly but the only way I can see this working is if the grinding surface is recessed to a level where only the blade comes into contact and the guide is not abraded. Something like a fine grit sandpaper stuck to a sheet of glass, so the guide rests on the glass and the blade on the sandpaper. Mine is consigned to the back of the draw.
I recommend it massively!
I'm a chef and its a pleasure to take care of my knifes with it cause without its really hard to get a nice cutting edge.
I may be weird, but I think rubbing the blade AND the guide on my sharpening stones is probably wearing out my stones twice as fast. So I'm glad I'm not using them anymore.
Having said that, there may be a certain knife I obtain in my future where, due to it's size or shape, it will be much easier to sharpen with the guide.
For that reason, I'm keeping them and so should you. Or to lend to a friend or family member who wants to get into knife sharpening with wet stones. Lots of reasons for me to hang onto them.
