Que du bonheur !

Débutant, mais déjà félicité par mon épouse !
Il faut une quinzaine de jours et plusieurs couteaux pour obtenir une pierre prête à l'aiguisage et trouver les bons gestes, et le résultat devient formidable.
C'est bien entendu un gros budget mais un réel plaisir que de couper mes légumes et utiliser mes outils de jardin.


It has already paid for itself

Precision sharpening at its finest.

Not revolutionary but an incredible evolution of the Wicked Edge system. I am a chef and have started a side gig sharpening high quality kitchen knives, scissors and precision cutting tools. Pocket knives and other heavy duty knives are not my main focus but I do sharpen them.

I own an original Wicked Edge Commercial unit and a WE60. The commercial version is my mainstay and the WE60 is mostly for portability. I wanted a second large unit so I could use one for knives and one exclusively for scissors and sheers when I am working remotely. This will save me from needing to switch back and forth on the job, saving time. And I will admit after seeing the Generation 4 I just really wanted it.

The angle adjustment is smooth and easy. The fine adjustment is far superior to the older system. The older ball bearing type joints were fantastic but the new joints are just silky smooth and seem easier to use after several knives in a row. Not a big deal but very nice on professional grade equipment.

The only downside is the price. But you get what you pay for. That said, I have have individual knives that cost more than the entire Gen 4 system. If you have a passion for knives and cooking or can use a Gen 4 in any commercial setting, I can’t recommend the Gen 4 system enough. Pony up the money and treat yourself to the best.
