January 2017 Newsletter

Happy New Year from Wicked Edge! We hope you had a great holiday and start to 2017. As always, we’re hitting the ground running and gearing up for Trade Show Season. We look forward to seeing you at any one of the upcoming events! We also have a few exciting new sharpeners and a new Pro Pack on the way! Read on below for all the details on shows, booth numbers, and new stuff coming over the next few weeks. 

Trade Shows

First things first, we have SHOT Show coming up on January 17-20 in Las Vegas, Nevada. We’ll be doing free sharpenings and demos on our most popular systems. We’ll also be signing up dealers and showing off some new products that will be released over the coming months. Come see us at booth #1817!

Next up is the Washington Sportsman Show in Puyallup, Washington, January 25-29. Unlike SHOT Show, which is mainly Business-To-Business, the Sportman Show is all about meeting and talking to our customers. If you’re in the area and you’ve ever wanted to come see us in action or ask questions directly, this is the time to do it. Drop by booth #611 for a visit!

New US Made Products Coming Soon!

We have a lot of different options when it comes to hardware, and we’ve been selling them in several configurations for years now. Recently, we decided, due to customer feedback, to offer some new kits so everyone can get the sharpener they need. Starting January 17th, we will be offering the Wicked Edge Precision Sharper WE120 and WE130 on our website. Also, we are very excited to annouce that as of this year ALL our sharpeners will be made in the USA! 

The WE120 consists of our 100/200/400/600 Grit Diamond Stones, 13-35 degree angle range, ball-joint guide rod assemblies, and micro angle adjustment in 0.05 degree increments. The price for this sharpening kit is $375.00.

And, yes! You read that ‘Scissor Attachment’ correctly. At long last we are ready to release the Wicked Edge Scissor Attachment. Like the Pro Pack III, this new adapter will be available starting early February. 

We’re very excited to reshore our sharpener production to the US and we can’t wait to get these new items on the market. After January 17th, the WE120 and WE130 will be able to ship right away. The Pro Pack III will ship in early February. In order to adjust for these new sharpeners and fully move our production to the US, we will be back-ordering our classic Precision Sharpener and Pro Pack I from January 17 to approximately February 7. As always, if you have any questions about any of our products, give us a call at 1-877-616-9911 (Mon-Fri, 9:00am-5:00pm MT) or email us at info@wickededgeusa.com. 

 

New Products Available NOW!

If you’ve been on the Wicked Edge mailing list for long, you probably know we release all our news on a once-monthly basis. This month, however, we have a lot of exciting happenings to talk about, so we decided to send out a second November letter, dedicated entirely to new WE products awaiting release just in time for the holidays.

1500 Grit Diamond Stones and Glass Platens Pack

WE1500GL 1 300x169 New Products Available NOW!
Diamond is a fantastic sharpening medium. It’s fast, durable, and gets better the more you use it. For a long time, our finest diamond stones have been 3 Micron diamond stones by DMT, paired with glass platens. We’re always on the lookout for anything new, and so we’ve chosen to retire the 3 Micron stones in favor of something more affordable and effective.The 1500 Grit Diamond Stones have given us fantastic results, both as a sharpener and as a polisher. It’s great at removing scratches and bridges the gap between diamond and ceramic or lapping film.

Aluminum Oxide Lapping Film

WE 9 Micron 1 300x169 New Products Available NOW!

We’ve been testing and working with our Diamond Lapping Films for some time now and have nothing but praise for how fast and effectively they remove scratches and produce a fantastic shine. One thing we have been wanting to improve is the price point. While in our experience the Diamond Lapping Film is certainly worth the $30.00 price tag, we wanted to provide something similar but less expensive for those customers that want to try lapping film without making a big commitment. After a brief search and some extensive testing, we’ve decided Aluminum Oxide is the way to go.

While not quite as fast or long-lasting as the diamond films (each diamond strips is good for about 10 knives while the Aluminum Oxide strips last for about 4-5 knives) these new lapping films produce sharp, polished edges every time. We will be offering these new films in 9, 5, and 3 micron sheets, each coming in sheets of 10 peel-and-stick strips. Just stick them on a glass platen and go to town! We especially recommend them with the new 1500 grit diamond stones or, if you’re creating convex edges, a blank, clean leather strop. Each sheet will retail for $7.50 and can be found here.

Rolling Hard Case

WEHC3 2 300x169 New Products Available NOW!

Diamond Emulsion Stops Packs

WE0402PDE.red .blk  2 300x169 New Products Available NOW!
Stropping is the final step in the sharpening process, and so some new strops packs are our final new product for November. We’re pairing the diamond emulsions we released earlier this month with our leather strops to create two new packages. The diamond emulsions are highly concentrated, which makes for a fast-cutting, super effective polishing compound for mirror edges. Also, because the emulsions are thicker and more concentrated, they require less reapplication than the sprays. We will be offering a 4m/2m package and a 1m/0.5m pack. Both come with a set of Blank Leather Strops and retail for $55.00.

All these exciting new additions to the WE line will be available staring November 23. As always, if you have any questions regarding new or old products, just give us a call at 1-877-616-9911 or email us at info@wickededgeusa.com. We are available to take calls 9am-5pm MT, Monday through Friday.
