The end of the year is almost upon us and we couldn’t be happier. The Holiday season holds a lot of excitement for Santa Fe and for Wicked Edge. In addition to keeping up with our holiday rush, we’re putting together some new packages, revamping our website, prepping new products for release, and just enjoying the last of Fall. Most of our good news will have to wait for December’s newsletter, but for now we have a sale, new product releases, and holiday shipping deadlines to announce.

New Items Now Available
The Polycrystalline Diamond Emulsions from Jende and our new Safety Shields were announced some time ago and we are pleased to say they are finally available for purchase!
The new Diamond Emulsions come in three sizes (7ml, 25ml, 50ml) and four grits (4 micron, 2 micron, 1 micron, and 0.5 micron). The emulsions are thicker and more concentrated than our Diamond Sprays, so you don’t need to apply as much to your strops. Polycrystalline diamonds also have a more ‘jagged’ edge than monocrystalline diamonds, which helps them cut faster when stropping. These emulsions are great for anyone looking to polish their knives to the highest level and get that coveted hair-splitting sharpness.
When working with knives, there’s always going to be a bit of risk involved. While at the National Restaurant Association Show in 2015, we received a lot of questions and remarks regarding safety, especially when sharpening quickly in a fast-paced environment. No one likes to get cut, after all. So, we created our new Safety Shields and are happy to announce they are ready to sell and ship. The shields fit on any of our stones or strops and offer complete protection while not hindering your sharpening. We especially recommend this product to professional sharpeners and commercial kitchen workers, as it’s all too easy to get lost in sharpening and slip up, leading to nasty cut. If avoiding injury is a top concern for you or for your business, definitely give these Safety Shields a try.
