At Sharpfection we were not happy with knife sharpeners we had or tried and knew there should be a better sharpener out there. So we spent a number of months researching knife sharpeners that could meet our high expectations of accuracy and sharpness. At the end of this process it appeared there was only one - the Wicked Edge. We were so impressed that not only did we buy one, we became the exclusive Australian dealer.
You can check out product descriptions in detail at Wicked Edge.
So if you are serious about knife sharpening, contact us to buy your own Wicked Edge.
Our pricing policy
We sell Wicked Edge products and other products sourced from the US at the US retail price / A$ exchange rate at the time of our purchase rounded to the nearest $A eg US$275 / .87 = A$316.09= A$316
We have changed our prices in line with the recent fall in A$. New prices as of 20 January 2014 are:
No base, 100/200, 400/600 grit stones - A$316 (in stock)
Registered and insured postage to most locations in Australia is A$25. WA, NT, TAS and anywhere in QLD north of Brisbane is $35. Please note that the cost of postage on the box is just the basic postage charge, registration, insurance and the cost of the box are on top of this. Free delivery in Canberra.
We do not import the bases from the US due to the high cost of shipping. A base is about 300 x 300 x 25 to 30mm and can be of timber, granite or marble. A drilling template is included with the Wicked Edge. You can either use a timber chopping board or better get a granite or marble offcut from a company that does benchtops. Most are happy to charge just the cost of cutting it, around A$30. If you require longer or shorter screws because of the base thickness, you can get M5 countersunk or cheesehead screws from Bunnings for a couple of dollars.
