Wicked Edge

Wicked Edge

Floor Plan Sponsor
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.

“I have been a knife collector for many years and have always appreciated the various features, elegance, and craftsmanship of knives. As time went by, my passion for collecting grew into an intriguing desire to build high quality tactical knives for people to enjoy. One person who has influenced me has been Wolfgang Loerchner, even more so as I have come to realize the high standards and craftsmanship of his knife making. For these reasons, I invited him to be part of our Bladewerx venture. My goal is to produce seven to eight new designs of the highest quality each year.” -Bill Hall, owner.
