Blade Show and International Cutlery Fair 2012 Accessory of the Year

Pro Pack II 2 320x240 Blade Show and International Cutlery Fair 2012 Accessory of the Year

We’re very proud to announce that our entry in this year’s Blade Show and International Cutlery Fair was voted Accessory of the Year! We entered the prototype of our new Pro-Pack II sharpener. It’s built on the same platform as the Gen II sharpener, so anyone wishing to upgrade an existing system will be able to. Some of the exciting new features are:

  • New Ball Joints
  • Micro Angle Adjustments of +/- .05 Degrees
  • Vise Jaw Riser allowing for angles as low as 13 degrees (and lower depending on the width of the knife)
  • Inclinometer by iGaging
  • The new Micro Fine 1.4 Micron and .6 Micron Ceramic Stones Pack
  • 1/.5 Micron Diamond and Leather Strops Pack

We should have these ready to roll out sometime in the next 4 weeks.

April 2015 Newsletter

new rainclouds 300x228

April’s a busy month for everyone: We have a couple of birthdays here at the office, Tax Day is coming up faster than anyone would like, Passover starts of the 3rd, Easter in on the 5th, and there is, of course, April Fool’s Day to start everything off right.

It’s going to be especially busy for us as we are moving to a brand new location this month! Over the past few years we have grown and grown and now we’re crawling the walls of our current suite of offices. Thanks to our loyal customer base and new Wicked Edge users, we’ve secured a 3,800+ square foot warehouse and over 3,600 square feet of office space.

In order to get fully moved in and operating, we will be closed April 13-17. We will not be able to ship any orders during that week, so if you have gifts to buy, please plan ahead! Make your order by 12pm Mountain Time on April 10th and we’ll get it shipped. Any orders made after that will ship after April 17th. We will still be taking orders and answering phone calls during the week.

As a final quick update, we are now accepting payments through Paypal! Just look for the button at the bottom of the checkout page.

 

Our new location

Here are a few pictures of the new location being painted and prepped for our arrival.

Gen 3 Pro Pre-Orders

Just in case you have not heard, we are now taking pre-orders for our new Gen 3 Pro sharpener and the Gen 3 Vise Jaw Upgrade! We’ve shown the Gen 3 prototype at the SHOT Show and the ECCKS this year and now we have the final product ready to go. The full Gen 3 Pro sharpener includes the free-floating vise jaw and one-step angle setting as well as a handy storage shelf. It comes with our 100/200, 400/600, and 800/1000 grit diamond stones. The Vise Jaw Upgrade is just the free-floating clamp and an extended degree bar that can be added to a Precision Sharpener on its own or a Pro Pack I or Pro Pack II. It also works with our Field and Sport Pro.

We are still getting these new products made-to-order so expect 3-4 weeks for delivery. We are also asking for 50% down on the Gen 3 Pro Sharpener. The Gen 3 Pro Sharpener is currently retailing at $699.00 and the Gen 3 Vise Jaw Upgrade is priced at $169.00

Assembling Your Pro-Pack II or Pro-Pack II Upgrade Kit

In order to install the new components for the Pro-Pack II or Upgrade Kit, you’ll need to first disassemble part of the WE100 so that you can add the Riser and Extended Base Rod. The instructions below walk you through the process. The instructions are also available as a downloadable/printable PDF here: Assembling Your Pro-Pack II.

Step 1)
Remove the Base Rod and Fixed Vise Jaw from the sharpener Base by unscrewing the two Socket Head Cap Screws from underneath the Base Rod using the larger of the hex keys on the Vise Key.basic kit exploded 2 Assembling Your Pro Pack II or Pro Pack II Upgrade Kit

Step 2)
Holding the Base with the logo facing you, place the Extended Base Rod underneath the Base, so that the engraved lines on the Extended Base Rod are facing up and the detents are facing you. Pass the 1/2 Socket Head Cap Screw through the Extended Base Rod and screw it into the Base. Only the hole on the right side of the Base (when logo is facing you) is threaded to accept the screw.

Step 3)
Place the Riser on the Base with the hole in the Riser aligned with the through-hole on the left side of the Base. Pass the 2 Socket Head Cap Screw through the Extended Base Rod, Base and Riser and screw it into the bottom of the Fixed Vise Jaw.

Step 4)
Slide the Ball Joint Assemblies onto the Extended Base Rod so that the Ball Joints face in toward the center of the sharpener, as shown in the figure above.

Step 5)
To mount your sharpener to the Mounting Plate, slide the the included washers onto the #10-32 Flat Socket Head Cap screws with the metal side facing the heads of the screws and slide those through the underside of the Mounting Plate. Thread them into the holes on the bottom of the blue sharpener Base and tighten them down with the smaller of the hex keys on the Vise Key. Affix the four adhesive backed rubber bumpers to the underside of the Mounting Plate at each corner.
