Default Angle of Sharpening Plane on hand plane

I recently took in my small tool belt hand plane to be sharpened
along with chisels and power planes and saw blades.
I was wondering what the angle of the Stanley hand held, small hand
plane angle of the cutting blade should be?
It seems the fellow sharpened it much to my dismay very steep and
quick. Not the long angle I remember it as.

Resharpening generally only requires touching up the secondary bevel - the
real cutting edge. The primary bevel is often not in need of additional
work. Google sharpening and you will understand.
