We finally got it loaded up on the site here: www.wickededgeusa.com/index.php?option=c...egory_id=8&Itemid=98

The Low Angle Adapter is a clamp extension allowing for angles as low as 10° with the Basic Kit and Pro-Pack I and as low as 8° with the Pro-Pack II. The standard vise keys work to attach the adapter and operate the clamp. You'll want to use an angle cube with the adapter to accurately set your angles.

It's pictured in blue so it will stand out better but it is actually anodized in black.

Great news Clay! I hope it will work fine. A think that 15° per side is quite acute angle for the most of tasks, but after some time it may be nice to do thinning of the knife, and for doing this with WE Low Angle Adapeter is necessary.

But the new pictures are strange. Adapter looks like one piece of metal, no 2 jaws. I supposed that they are some CAD pictures. Could you show some real photos?

There's some pics in this thread. (Don't think it's changed any.)

Nice. A couple of questions if I may?

1. Does it come with longer arms? The picture shows that the paddles are mounted on arms that look a fair bit longer than the normal arms but the product page doesn't mention any extra arms coming with the package.

2. Is the strength of the clamping the same as the normal jaws below? I notice it only has one screw instead of two like the main jaws have, so wondered how you achieve the same level of clamping force.

Can't answer the first, but there are two screws...

Ah yes, so there are, I'm clearly going blind.

So I'm guessing you have to clamp the knife in the low-angle adaptor first, then clamp the adaptor into the main jaws. And the main jaws will be exerting extra force on the adaptor's bottom screw because not only is that screw providing leverage against the top screw (like the main jaws do) but it also has to contend with the main jaws clamping down into the adaptor. Poor little thing :)

No, because there's actually a piece that sticks out below the clamp, that the bottom clamp clamps onto.

Is that just attached to one side then? I can't really tell from the pics.

Here's a pic from the other thread I referenced above, that may help. (There's a bunch over there).
