Wicked Edge - Precision Sharpening System

Additional shipping will be required to Hawaii, Alaska, and Canada.

The Generation 3 Pro Sharpener is our premier sharpener and definite must if you are sharpening a large volume of knives, run a sharpening service or want a sharpener with the simplest set up and the newest hardware. It is feature rich and makes sharpening, touch-ups and repairs a quick and easy task for any user.

The one-step angle adjustment, ranging from 14 to 27 degrees, allows the user to change the sharpening angle simultaneously on both sides of the knife which makes the process of sharpening a knife with the Generation 3 Pro model faster and simpler than our other consumer models.

The free-floating, Cam-Lock Vise Jaw design allows for one handed, secure clamping of knives including fully flat ground blades and it features a tension adjustment which lets the user choose the appropriate tension for varying thicknesses of knives. The maximum blade thickness accepted by the Generation 3 Pro is 3/16” but jaws for 1/4” thick blades are available for this model. A self-centering vise jaw helps create a symmetrical angle on both sides of your knife while you sharpen.

Mounted on a sturdy base that includes storage shelves for 6 of your most used abrasive handles, The Generation 3 Pro Sharpener provides a great platform for stationary, at home use or in the professional work space. The sharpener comes with a hard, waterproof, shock resistant case for storage and transport of the sharpener with a variety of accessories.
