Wicked Edge Precision Knife Sharpeners give professional quality sharpening ability to everyone.
The WE100 Precision Knife Sharpener is Wicked Edge's original sharpener. Sharpen blades up to 15" long to angles of 15-30 degrees per side (30-60 degrees inclusive). The angle adjustment is in 1-degree increments and angle markings are calibrated for the knife's edge to sit at 5/8" above the top of the vise. The maximum blade thickness is 1/4”, but longer screws may be used to enable the clamping of thicker blades.
Wicked Edge Precision Sharpener Kit includes:
- Diamond Plates (2) Each of:
- 100 grit
- 400 Grit
- 600 Grit
- 8" Guide Rods
- Alignment Tools for precision mounting
- Knife Brace for sharpening flexible blades

Base Sold Separately
The WE100 Precision Knife Sharpener is sold without a base. Wicked Edge offers two base options, the WE024 Wicked Edge Aluminum Base and the WE020 Wicked Edge Granite Base. Instructions for mounting the Precision Sharpener directly to a workbench are also included.
Carefully thought out, and built of aluminum, stainless steel and composite materials, the patented knife sharpening technology and precision engineering of the Wicked Edge Sharpeners provide fantastic results, yet remain accessible to everyone. No special skill is required.
The positioning of the knife in the clamp affects the angle of sharpening. If the position of the knife in the clamp changes from sharpening to sharpening, then the angle will be different each time, wasting your time and giving less than optimal edges. Using the Wicked Edge’s included alignment tools it is straight forward to position your knives in the same place every time, ensuring consistent results.
Work both sides at once
Wicked Edge Precision Sharpeners work both side of the knife at the same time. A sturdy clamp secures the knife in place with an adjustable guide rod on either side. The stones all come in pairs. Simply slide a stone on each rod and use alternating strokes to sharpen from both sides at once. There is no need to reposition the blade or the stones.
