In 2007, Wicked Edge set out to tackle the problem that all knife users eventually face -knives go dull with use and it is difficult to sharpen them effectively, consistently and repeatably. Wicked Edge has created a technology that delivers an incredible, long lasting edge on your knife, while preserving your knife's geometry and metal. Our technology stands out because it succeeds in solving all the problems associated with previous approaches to knife sharpening, creating edges that are sharpener and more durable than most people imagined were possible, with no damage to the blade design and without removing excess metal. Wicked Edge sharpeners are quick and efficient and do not require special skills or knowledge to create and maintain incredibly sharp knives.
Controlling the Angle of the Abrasive Against the Knife is the Key
Angle control is the most critical aspect of knife sharpening. Wicked Edge machines precisely guide the sharpening stones to create a perfectly shaped edge and our systems are the only angle guided machines on the market that do it precisely and repeatably, on both sides of the knife.
Wicked Edge knife sharpeners are able to control the angle so accurately due to their robust design and precision machining. Each of our machines are built from aircraft grade aluminum and utilize 1/4 inch, stainless steel guide rods to ensure the angle doesn't deviate while sharpening. Spherical rod-end joints allow for smooth rotation of the guide rods while maintaining the relationship of the stones to the knife perfectly.
All Wicked Edge sharpeners offer angle adjustment in 1 degree increments and our more advanced systems include micro angle adjustments in 0.05 degree increments. This is important because the angle at which an edge is ground varies from knife to knife. The ability to make angle adjustments in small increments allows you to match the existing bevel of a knife, without having to reshape the bevel and remove excess metal.
Clamping the Knife Securely and Mounting the Clamp to a Solid Base Takes it to a New Level
Wicked Edge sharpeners clamp the knife securely in a straight up position which frees both hands to sharpen. It turns out that this setup has several benefits:
Sharpening on a Wicked Edge system is significantly faster than sharpening on other angle guided machines because you can alternate quickly between both sides of the blade. Every stroke of the stones is perfect, making the process extremely efficient.
Alternating strokes prevents the eventual weakening of the edge that occurs with setups that only allow you to work on one side of the knife at a time. Sharpening systems that don't provide an easy way to alternate between sides of the knife encourage the operator to work longer on one side before switching to the other, which creates a large burr at the very edge of the blade. At each change of sides, the burr is pushed back and forth, work hardening the metal at the edge, making it brittle and prone to failure.
Wicked Edge Sharpeners are Designed so that Your Sharpening Sessions are Repeatable and Accurate
The ability to repeat the sharpening geometry from one sharpening session to the next is a core aspect of what makes Wicked Edge sharpeners so effective. Wicked Edge sharpeners have three factors that determine the sharpening geometry:
The height at which a knife is clamped in the sharpener's vise
All Wicked Edge Vises have two depth settings, an upper and a lower position with a positive physical stop so you're sure the knife is mounted at the same height each time
The front-to-back position in which the knife is clamped
An Alignment Guide is included with each system so you can record the front-to-back position in which you mounted your knife.
The sharpening angle
Our sharpeners are precision machined from robust materials to ensure a consistent angle throughout the sharpening process
The instruction booklet included with each sharpener has a log book for recording the settings for each of your knives, providing an easy reference to ensure that you pick right back up where you left off with your knife.
