It only matters of you are not using highspeed steel like M2. I have ground regular steel using highspeed grinder, however, you have to use a light touch and I also use a Qtip with water to keep the steel cooler. I have a highspeed(3500rpm) a slowspeed(1750), a tormack and stones and diamond.
For turning I hone 90% of the time then when the angle changes to much I do a quick grind.
