It’s shaping up to be a busy July, following an equally active June, here at Wicked Edge. Blade Show, we’re happy to say, was a rousing success. We had a great time meeting old and new friends and fans of the Wicked Edge. If you missed us this year, don’t worry! We will be returning in 2015. Our next show is the New York Custom Knife Show in November.

The Father’s Day Sale was also a huge success, and we’d like to thank everyone who participated. We aren’t planning any more sales at the moment, but if we do hold one if the future, it will be announced on our Facebook page, so be sure to Like and Follow us to get the latest news.

Also in social media news, we’ve just started our brand new Instagram account! It’s great to see so many amazing knives with awesome edges and, as always, we love getting feedback. Come check us out at Officialwickededge!

New Product: 3 Micron Diamond Stones, Glass Platens, and Diamond Films

This month we are excited to introduce a whole new line of products! Wicked Edge now carries 6 variations of Diamond Lapping Film, Blank Handles and Glass Platens Pack to mount and use the Diamond Lapping Film, and 3 Micron Diamond Stones from DMT.

The Diamond Lapping Film is more aggressive than strops and is great for refining and removing scratches at a very fine level. The results they achieve are almost instantaneous. You will be able to watch the shine appear on your edge with just a few passes.

Each sheet of Diamond Lapping Film comes with 10 pre-cut strips that are sized for Wicked Edge handles and each strip will last for approximately 5-8 sharpening sessions. Diamond Lapping Film is a longer lasting and faster cutting abrasive than sandpaper that is better suited for polishing metal. This product should be used with the Blank Handles and Glass Platens Pack. The films are peel-and-stick so they are very easy to apply to and remove from the glass platens.

The brand new 3 Micron Diamond Stones are a great addition to any sharpening kit. They are designed to remove scratches left by the coarser diamond stones and further the refinement of your edge. The highly specialized technology needed to plate such fine diamonds is proprietary to our supplier, DMT, making these incredibly fine stones truly unique. Glass platens are mounted on the opposite side of the handles for use with the diamond lapping film of your choice.
