Wicked Edge WE130-17 Micro-Adjustable Precision Sharpener with Cam-Lock Vise, No Base (2017 Model)
WE13017: WE130-17 Precision Sharpener (2017 Model)
The Precision Sharpener - WE130 includes the Patented Generation 3 Cam-Lock Vise, making it ideal for sharpening fully-ﬂat-ground blades. The vise is self-centering which keeps the angle on both sides of the sharpener symmetrical. The WE130 includes the Micro-Adjustable, Ball-Joint Guide Rods which allow for 0.05 degree angle adjustments, and has an angle range of 13-35 degrees per side.
What's new to the 2017 model?
They've changed the shape of the L-bracket and incorporated a jam-nut locking system which secures the micro adjustment feature. The 2017 model has their newly designed Generation 3 Vise which includes a fully enclosed cam to prevent metal shavings from entering inside the mechanism, a tension adjustment lever to control the clamping tension of the vise, and split jaws which make the 2017 model more effective at clamping distally tapered and fully-flat-ground blades.
The Wicked Edge is a precision engineered, angle guided manual sharpening machine. It was designed to very exacting standards to consistently deliver an incredible, razor sharp edge. While the results are excellent, it is easy to use and does not require special knowledge or skills to use. Made in the USA.
