I am happy to be the first to say, thank you for making what was probably a difficult decision to delay shipping out the Pro Pack 2, but in light of the news and circumstances behind your decision, I for one am very, very happy that you made the decision to get it right before filling orders. I know that there has been growing pressure to get something out to your customers, but speaking for myself, I would much rather have a better sharpening system than have it sooner. What would have been upsetting would be to get my sharpener and then find out that a month later, I would need to replace it to have a better version. I don't mind waiting at all and again, thanks Clay for making this the best system on the market. I will make it my mission in life to tell as many as possible what a great purchase I made and how glad I am that I did.

I am going to second that! I didn't realize I would start such a large discussion due to my lack of patience. But I must say that Clay and all others involved are amazing and I am so thankful for everything they do. It's rare to have a company that cares about their product and customers so much. I intend to continue to support wicked edge and enjoy all the amazing products they have to offer. I am soooo excited for the new arms and it will be a treat to get them. Thanks all!

There is Clay who listens to his customers and is constantly trying to evolve the perfection everyone wants and betimes he is run ragged doing research and development, finding machinists who are capable of doing the work for a price that will not blow the roof off the cost of the WEPS. At the same time he is trying to sell his creation and visit all the knife shows so his work is shown where it counts. On top of all this he has another business and a family to be there for.

Not to mention the nut jobs that go by and harass him at the office... :whistle: :evil:

I am excited too! I have the new arms and the riser block, next comes the new extended degree bar.
As one who was there when the whole question of 'how good is the WEPS' first came up on the principal Forums, how good is it really? is it good enough to compete with professional sharpeners? I have to say that the WEPS has evolved enough that we can all safely say that it is indeed really good enough! It now exceeds the abilities of most other sharpeners and is being used by professionals in their businesses. The former nay sayers have fallen silent. In fact some are using the WEPS; some are providing materials for the rig and all are now close friends and supporters.
With the arrival of the new arms/base rod/taller vise, the WEPS is in my estimation, a sharpener to be reckoned with by any other rig in its class...and then some! No fears here!! ;)

Cheers
Leo
P.S. Hmmm! Do I sound like a fan-boy?! LOL!!

Fan boy?

I have been telling everyone it is the best. ;)

edit - I'm curious about what Clays' vision for the future is.
Will we ever see these on the shelf in Australia?

You are correct! It is the best sharpener, but I didn't want anyone to think I was a fanatic! ;)

Anyone know what the price of the Pro Pack II upgrade will cost, and what comes with the upgrade?

Thanks

Not sure if this is official, but it ties in with other information I have read:



He goes through several diffeent options and ends up describing the Pro Pack 2.. and mentions pricing.

That's the only dealer that has the Pro Pack II on their site, I think.
