30 degree grind is far too thick to use whittling wood. 30-35 degree is used for choppers. Right angle for whittling wood is 22 degrees. Here in Scandinavia we don´t really now double bevel knives, our knives are single beveled and very sharp. They might have tiny micro bevel as secondary bevel to make the edge stronger.
Most of the double bevel knives are designed to be like that and are very difficult to convert as scandi grind. But what you can do to improve it´s cutting ability is simpe convexing it.

Bark River have good instructions to do it:
