Product Details

The Generation 3 Pro Sharpener is the newest pro sharpening system from Wicked Edge. The rapid angle adjustment mechanism allows the user to change the sharpening angle simultaneously on both sides of the knife. The cam-lock jaws are also operated with a one-step lever. The jaws are free floating and self centering, making them ideal for clamping both regular and fully-flat-ground blades. The Gen 3 Pro now includes a Hard Carrying Case with custom foam inserts to securely fit the sharpener and many accessories.
