*For WE100 Precision Sharpener and Pro-Pack 1 Users – select this option if you already have a Wicked Edge with hinge/collar connected guide rods. If you have a Pro-Pack II or Field and Sport Sharpener, please select this option: Generation 3 Vise. Ships within 2-3 weeks of ordering.
The Generation 3 Vise is the newest knife clamping technology from Wicked Edge. It’s free floating which allows it to clamp full-flat-ground blades with superior clamping power. The Vise is also self-centering so the angle will always be symmetrical from one side of the knife to the other. It clamps the knife with an easy to use lever which eliminates the hassle of tightening multiple screws.
This upgrade kit includes the ball-joint guide rods, which are required to use the Generation 3 Vise.
- One-Step knife mounting
- Self-centering for perfect symmetry
- Free floating for diverse clamping
- 3/16″ maximum clamping width
- Uses same Depth and Alignment tools as all other Wicked Edge systems
- New Degree Bar that is calibrated to account for the additional height of the Generation 3 Vise
- Includes two 10″ Guide Rods and ball-joints
How it works:
When the clamping lever is pushed into the down position, a cam rotates on the inside of the jaw. This puts pressure on a spring-loaded piston which pushes against the bottom of the jaws, spreading them and applying pressure to the top, where the knife is clamped.
Vise Jaw and housing: 6061 T6 Aluminum
