The WE120 Sharpener has all the features of the WE100, but with some notable changes. You'll get a longer degree bar and vise riser block which extends the angle range to 13-35 per side (compared to 15 to 30 on the WE100). It also includes the upgraded micro-adjustable ball joints allowing for sub 1 degree angle adjustments. This is the same sharpener which is included in the Pro Pack II.
In the current version Wicked Edge has incorporated a jam-nut lock for the micro adjustments feature - replacing the set screw lock on the older system. The most current version can be distinguished from the pre-2017 models by the arched riser block instead of the solid square riser block.
The Wicked Edge is a manual rod-guided controlled angle sharpener. With the Wicked Edge Precision Knife Sharpener, you will quickly and easily produce razor-sharp, long-lasting edges on your knives, every time. It's unique mounting system assists with getting the knife re positioned in the same location for touch ups which means you don't have to rebuild your edge at every sharpening. Less metal removal means you can greatly extend the life of your cutlery. Get a perfect edge every time, with precise angle control from 13-35 degrees. Complete instructions included.
