January 2017 Newsletter
Happy New Year from Wicked Edge! We hope you had a great holiday and start to 2017. As always, we're hitting the ground running and gearing up for Trade Show Season. We look forward to seeing you at any one of the upcoming events! We also have a few exciting new sharpeners and a new Pro Pack on the way! Read on below for all the details on shows, booth numbers, and new stuff coming over the next few weeks.
First things first, we have SHOT Show
coming up on January 17-20 in Las Vegas, Nevada. We'll be doing free sharpenings and demos on our most popular systems. We'll also be signing up dealers and showing off some new products that will be released over the coming months. Come see us at booth #1817!
Next up is the Washington Sportsman Show
in Puyallup, Washington, January 25-29. Unlike SHOT Show, which is mainly Business-To-Business, the Sportman Show is all about meeting and talking to our customers. If you're in the area and you've ever wanted to come see us in action or ask questions directly, this is the time to do it. Drop by booth #611 for a visit!
In February we have another Business-to-Customer show, the Pacific Northwest Outdoor Sportsman's Show
in Portland, Oregon, February 8-12. If you're in the area come to booth #1055 and say hello!
New US Made Products Coming Soon!
We have a lot of different options when it comes to hardware, and we've been selling them in several configurations for years now. Recently, we decided, due to customer feedback, to offer some new kits so everyone can get the sharpener they need. Starting January 17th, we will be offering the Wicked Edge Precision Sharper WE120 and WE130 on our website. Also, we are very excited to annouce that as of this year ALL our sharpeners will be made in the USA!
The WE120 consists of our 100/200/400/600 Grit Diamond Stones, 13-35 degree angle range, ball-joint guide rod assemblies, and micro angle adjustment in 0.05 degree increments. The price for this sharpening kit is $375.00.
The WE130 will have our 100/200/400/600 Grit Diamond Stones, 13-35 degree angle range, ball-joint guide rod assemblies, micro angle adjustment in 0.05 degree increments, and Generation 3 Cam-Lock Vise. This kit will retail for $525.00
Also, starting around February 7th, we will be releasing the PRO PACK III, our most complete kit yet! The Pro Pack III will cost $1199.00 and comes with the WE130 Sharpener, bundled with the 800/1000 Grit Diamond Stones, 1500 Grit Diamond Stones and Blank Glass Platens Pack, 6 Micron Diamond Lapping Film, 4/2 Micron Diamond Emulsion and Leather Strops, Digital Angle Gauge, Low Angle Adapter, Generation 3 Jaws for 1/4" Blades, Scissor Attachment, Advanced Alignment Guide, Hard Carrying Case with Wheels, and Granite Base.
And, yes! You read that 'Scissor Attachment' correctly. At long last we are ready to release the Wicked Edge Scissor Attachment. Like the Pro Pack III, this new adapter will be available starting early February. We're very excited to reshore our sharpener production to the US and we can't wait to get these new items on the market. After January 17th, the WE120 and WE130 will be able to ship right away. The Pro Pack III will ship in early February. In order to adjust for these new sharpeners and fully move our production to the US, we will be back-ordering our classic Precision Sharpener and Pro Pack I from January 17 to approximately February 7. As always, if you have any questions about any of our products, give us a call at 1-877-616-9911 (Mon-Fri, 9:00am-5:00pm MT) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
