Pictured knife is not included with this sharpener
The WE130 Sharpener has all the features of the WE120, but also includes the Generation 3 Vise jaw upgrades. So you get a longer degree bar which extends the angle range to 13-35 per side (compared to 15 to 30 on the WE100), the upgraded micro adjustable ball joints allowing for sub 1 degree angle adjustments and the newest Generation 3 vise. That vise is self centering with free floating jaws which makes it ideal fully flat ground blades. This is the same sharpener which is included in the new 2017 version of the Pro Pack 3 but is available here with just the basic stone set of 100, 200, 400 and 600 grit diamonds.
For the newest versions they have changed the shape of the L-bracket for the guide arms and incorporated a jam-nut lock for the micro adjustments feature - replacing the set screw lock on the older system. The included Generation 3 clamp includes a fully enclosed cam to prevent metal shavings from entering inside the mechanism, a tension adjustment lever to control the clamping pressure of the vise, and split jaws which make it more effective at clamping distally tapered and fully flat ground blades than the older version.
