The Wicked Edge Low Angle Adapter WELA is a vise extension designed to help you achieve lower sharpening angles on your knives. It is compatible with all models of Wicked Edge systems, except for the Pre-2017 Commercial Series Sharpener. This adapter is particularly useful for sharpening Japanese knives and small blades that require lower angles. By attaching the Low Angle Adapter to your Wicked Edge sharpener, you can achieve more acute angles and enhance the performance of your knives.
To operate and mount the adapter, the package includes 3/32" and 1/8" Allen Wrenches. These tools allow you to securely attach the Low Angle Adapter to your Wicked Edge system for precise sharpening. It is important to note that when using the Low Angle Adapter, the clamped height significantly changes, which may affect the accuracy of the angle markings on the sharpener.
To ensure precise results, we recommend using a Digital Angle Cube to measure and adjust the sharpening angle. For optimal performance with the Low Angle Adapter, longer guide rods can be helpful in adjusting the clamping height to accommodate the adapter and achieve desired sharpening angles. Upgrade your Wicked Edge system with the Low Angle Adapter and experience the benefits of achieving lower sharpening angles for your knives.
