About Wicked Edge Precision Sharpeners
Wicked Edge Precision Sharpeners was born out of a desire to find an alternative to ineffective traditional knife sharpening techniques. The answer came in a precision engineered, controlled-angle sharpener anyone could use.
Poorly formed edges, like those created on electric sharpeners, will quickly dull. Controlled-angle sharpeners work decently, but clamps often fail; the vises don’t have enough clamping power to be truly effective and the whole process comes to a halt while the knife is replaced and the vise is reset. You may also find the need to recreate the edge from scratch (which requires a considerable amount of time) when only a touch up is needed.
The combination of mechanical problems and poor performance finally led our founder Clay Allison to take a closer look at sharpening to create something that would address these issues.
