Ordered WE with quartz base from bestsharpeningstones.com. Received item in a timely fashion, but the quartz base had the holes drilled in the wrong locations. I called and spoke to someone who said I would be getting a call back from them. I also emailed three times. It's been over a week, and no response. I ended up drilling the holes correctly myself, but it cost me a drill bit and 1 hour of my time.

I'm sorry that this has to be my first post here, but I'm kicking myself now! I wish I had checked BSS reviews before placing my order. Ordered the Pro Pack 2 and received it today. But, it came shipped in two separate packages. The base came in one. It was made of some kind of "smurf blue" stone. Is this right? I thought the pro pack 2 comes with a natural color quartz base.

The BIGGEST problem is that the kit came with the old arms and no riser block. It looks like they just took a Pro Pack 1 and added some stones and one of their cheap bases to make it look like a Pro Pack 2. Called them twice right away and only got their answering service. A couple people who didn't seem to know anything about the business. Also emailed Mike and no response yet. I hope I haven't thrown away $700 DOLLARS!!!!

Can someone please post a picture of what a current Wicked Edge Pro Pack 2 package should look like? Thanks!

All the WE products are on this site.

I don't know BSS personally and maybe it is a very good shop. But there have been multiple complaints on them on this forum.

If you look back in the thread, I posted very early on about my problems with BSS.
You should have gotten the riser and the ball joint arms with the PP II for certain.

The base... well, when I ordered mine the picture they had on the web site was of a black base. It was listed as quartz. I got a white base that is Quarzite, a synthetic stone. It works fine BTW...
When I finally heard back for him, he pointed out that the site states they will select the color. It did. I soon got over the color issue, as the base does exactly what it is supposed to do... and weighs about 15 pounds...so it holds everything very solidly. My base was also shipped separately.. but that was well before there were any Pro Packs offered. I think the bases were always sold separately at that time.

It sounds like... if you get the riser and new arms...and all of the stones are there, you will be up to the PPII level.

I think that they only way I ever heard back for the owner is because Clay intervened. I am really surprised, after all of the issue this guy has had, that he is still a dealer for WEPS.
