Founded by Clay Allison in 2007, Wicked Edge was inspired by a desire to achieve a perfect, lasting knife edge using a system that allowed that edge to be repeated. Clay ran a successful elk outfitting business for 15 years in southern Colorado. His frustration in the field, and having to bring 3 or 4 knives and a sharpener on each hunt made him think "there's got to be a better way." After several months of brainstorming and trial-and-error, the Wicked Edge Precision Sharpener was born in Clay's garage. 10 years later, the Wicked Edge is widely regarded as the best knife sharpening system in the world. We now have seven sharpener models, over fifty accessories, and three Pro-Packs which combine our sharpening systems and accessories to make the ultimate sharpening kits.
