We're officially unveiling this sharpener at Blade this year, but I thought it would be good to show it here on the forum first. This unit has been under development for a while now (a couple of years) and has some really cool features like one step knife mounting and one step angle setting. It also features floating jaws so that the knife is always centered and FFG blades are a non-issue since the jaws both move to conform to the grind geometry. Here are some sneak peek images:

It is so much fun to use - simply step up to the machine and set the knife in the slot, pull the lever to clamp it, move the degree bar to set both sides simultaneously and start sharpening. The micro-adjustments are still available and the regular Wicked Edge stones fit.

Missing from the images are the degree markings along the curved front plate, our logo and an actual knife in there. The image is of a prototype, so there may be some minor design changes though the technology is well set.

I don't have pricing yet... :) I should have it sorted out after we get back from Blade.
