Underneath there is room for two sharpening stones and on the side you can slide the guiding rods and the Allen wrench into the
The Wicked Edge GO comes with two combination sharpening stones with grains 200 and 600. These are American grain sizes and therefore slightly finer than you might be used to from, for instance, Japanese stones with the same number. The 200-side is great to pre-sharpen blunt knives. You will quickly restore the edge with this diamond sharpening stone. The 600-side hones the side until you have a razor-sharp knife.
Both guiding rods can easily be adjusted. Simply loosen the button and slide it through the profile. The Wicked Edge GO comes with a waterproof marker to make sure you can mark the edge to find the right angle.
The main advantage of the Wicked Edge Go is that it comes with only these two sharpening stones, but that you can easily expand this sharpening system with other stones from the Wicked Edge range. As a result you can even use the Wicked Edge GO to end up with a real mirror polish.
The Wicked Edge GO comes with a cast iron clamp. With it you can attach the GO to a table or workstation to make sure it will always stay in place. The Wicked Edge GO has also recessed screw holes so you can permanently screw it to your work bench when you don’t need it on the ‘go’.
The Wicked Edge GO comes with a nylon carrier bag that has enough room to store everything you might possible need to sharpen your knives. Take it with you in your caravan or camper or simply use it at home: you will decide where you use this amazing system!
