Description

The Pro-Pack II Upgrade Kit includes some terrific hardware upgrades and can be installed on any WE100 sharpener including the Gen I and Gen II Basic Kits and the Pro-Pack I.

Features include:

  • New micro-adjustable Ball Joint and Guide Rod Assemblies
  • Micro-adjustments of +/- .05 degrees
  • Riser Block allowing for angles down to 13 degrees
  • Longer Base Rod calibrated to the Riser and new Ball Joint Assemblies

The action of the new ball joints is extremely smooth and all play in the joint has been eliminated. The micro-adjustments give a huge range of versatility to your sharpening, opening the door to complex geometries and highly customized edges. An additional benefit of the micro-adjustments is the ability to easily compensate for the variation in thickness of many of the different sharpening stones available for the Wicked Edge platform.

Hey, this is a great upgrade! Looks like a whole lot of ideas contributed by a lot of users have helped to improve what was already the gold standard for sharpeners. Unlike the photos, the thumbscrews that lock the arms into the degree detents have the Allen-head sockets, so you can more easily lock them down - a real problem on my original unit. Whole system seems to be more robust, more precise. The supplied riser block also raises the blade up to a more ergonomic position.
