Saving up my money for a Pro Pack 2 with case. I absolutely destroyed my ZT0561 with a Lansky Sharpening system and began doing research on ways I could possibly fix it. I came across the WE and it looks like it may be able to help. I love knives and have many nice kitchen knives from Henkels and a small collection of mid to high end folders. The only thing is, I cringe every time I cut something because I have never been able to sharpen a knife to save my life! I want to be able to use my knives!!! :-) I hope the Wicked edge can help. While I'm saving my money I'm reading and watching videos on technique and practice so I can hit the ground running once I get it. Thank you for this forum and all the videos you put out. It gives me hope, that I too, may be able to sharpen a knife someday. Now the waiting...:-(

Hey david! Welcome to the forum! There's a lot of good information here... So feel free to poke around and bring up old threads if you have questions :-)

When you get ready to purchase one, you may want to check with Bob at Oldawan Tools as he normally has them in stock and shipping is quick.

I'm sure you will love it! If you want any knives that you screwed up in the meantime fixed, I'm sure someof us wouldn't mind helping out here and there via the mail :-) it will whet your appetite for what the weps is really capable of.

Thanks! I can't wait! Just to be able to use my knives on a daily basis and not have to worry about them getting dull because the WE will sharpen them is worth it's weight in gold to me! I hate to admit it but I buy really nice knives because I love the way they look, feel and cut but once they dull they get tossed in the drawer and I buy a new knife. Now I'll be able to recover some of my old favorites! And if anyone wants to offer to fix my 0561 on the WE I would definitely take them up on that. I ground down one bevel too much on the lansky, used the wrong angle, and widened the tip, it's pretty bad. I was having an OCD moment when my new 0561 would no longer cut paper and I couldn't recover it on my rods and I went out and bought a lansky and just...well...it puts a frog in my throat what I did to that beautiful knife...I'll post pictures tonight. Thanks all for making me feel welcome!

David,
Call the Wicked Edge office ((877) 616-9911) Monday morning they will either send you new tape or get you a new stone. Wicked Edge is one of the best companies around for fixing "their bad"! Being on this forum for a year now, I can't remember one case that Clay did not jump on and make it right ASAP!
"Stuff" happens? It is how a company takes care of you after the sale that matters! ;)
