Hi! My name is René. 34 years old french canadian from quebec city! I was looking around for sharpener on the web when i fall down on this marvellous system! Tadam xmass arrived and i got one from me to me!! Finally having my henkel knifes cutting better than new.
Also getting some shapening jobs from co-workers.

I will later put some pictures of my packaging setting for my new stuff to carry around.

Im also trying to find on the forum some answers for the life time of the diamond stones.... I think the breaking time is less than 6 knifes...im I right? Because if i look at my stones the middle is really smoother than the edge on the 100 and 2000 stones. Maybe ill finally found the answer on the forum...


Have a good day or evening ...it depends where you are in the world at this moment.

Keep it sharp!

P.S. sorry for my english. As i said ..im a french canadian :)

Hi folks! Just ORDERED my WE Pro 1 kit earlier today. I'm a newbie to sharpening but am looking forward to learning the craft and testing my abilities. I am sure I'll have plenty of questions once my kit arrives (CAN'T WAIT!) Besides my full-time job I travel the country providing training for LE and military personnel. During "spare time" I help moderate a Packers message board (GO PACK GO!). I have a variety of knives from Spyderco, Benchmade, Chicago Cutlery, Tops, Cold Steel and more. Having already read about the experiences of many of the peoople on this site I look forward to picking the brains of the talent pool here.

Be safe!

Salut René!
Vous êtes les bienvenus ici. Il est bon d'avoir un Canadien couteaux à aiguiser avec le bord Wicked. J'ai hâte de vous entendre de nouveau et de vous aider si vous avez des problèmes.
J'ai été en utilisant mes pierres de diamants depuis deux ans et ils sont toujours fait un excellent travail.
Cordialement
Léo
P.S.
Sorry for my French Rene! I don't get to use it often enough. I grew up in North Bay Ontario nd I spent a lot of time around Temiskaming and territory hunting and fishing.Never mind my friend, your English is just fine.

Hey Dan
Welcome aboard mate. Glad to have you here and look forward to hearing about your experiences.
I used to do a lot of military training back in the early 1950's just after the Korean War. My specialty was the maintenance and use of the Lee-Enfield .303 rifle, the Bren LMG and the old Sten SMG. Besides that I helped out with the hand to hand stuff...mostly I was the enemy to the instructor's good guy! LOL! I can still feel the bumps and bruises from landing on the bumpy ground at the Chippewa Barracks and Armory where we trained. Too long ago!
Anyway I am happy to hear you have ordered yourself a WEPS. You will have plenty of help from your new friends here if you need it.
Cheers chum
Leo

Here is my story. Originally from north of Boston, have been on St. Croix USVI for the last 24 years. Vietnam combat vet, beautiful wife and three awesome daughters, one son each. I will be retiring soon and have been trying to come up with something to do with my time when we move to Charleston SC. I think I have found my next mission.........sharpening all the knives in the Chucktown area with my wicked awesome Wicked Edge! I am fast becoming obsessed with the perfect edge. After spending a bunch of hours reading the forums I recognize I have a lot to learn. Looking forward to the journey!

Welcome to the forum. A lot of knowledgeable , helpful people here. The WEPS will help you get some great edges. Little bit of learning curve, little bit of break in. Practice on knives that are not expensive nor your favorite.

Welcome to the mainland (soon).

Hi Chris welcome aboard! B)
