Recommendation? Wicked Edge Go or Dulknife Sharpener?

    Just curious if anyone has experience with the Dulknife brand knife sharpener available on the big auction site and from the Kingdom Knives website? Very similar in function as the WE Go at about half the price... I just know I need to get away from my Lansky clamp setup and I don't think I'm ready for "production" (a lot) sharpening using hand stones just yet.

    No experience with the Dulknife but I can say the GO is a very high quality product. It's built like a tank and everything works smoothly. It's much heavier than I expected. I used it on a few knives and ended up selling the GO and have just upgrade to a WE 130. It should be here in a few days.

    Can you get stones for the DulKnife other than the included 200/800 combo grits? Will WE stones work with it?

    If you're talking about $150 for the DulKnife vs. $200 for the GO, I'd "go" for the GO. Lot's of online support, videos and tutorials for WE sharpeners. That and you're getting a proven product with a very good company.

    Actually the Dulknife is currently on sale for half of what the WE GO is priced at. It also is compatible with all WE stones, strops, etc... I was just curious if anyone had used it as a guided system or if I should try the SharpMaster again and do it "freestyle" or at least as much "freestyle" as my unsteady hands can handle....

    Here's an interesting perspective

    As for the wicked edge clones, I'd say they are alot cheaper for a reason. I'm sure it can work in some capacity.

    I got a kme and edge pro. But got in on the hapstone m2 kickstarter. Use them both but prefer the edge pro. Can take some time getting used too it though.

    Even at 1/2 the price, I would still go with Wicked Edge over the DulKnife mainly due to knowing it's a quality product with a great company and user knowledge base behind it. The DulKnife might be a great sharpener but I just wouldn't chance it until they have been used and tested more. I would stick with the known systems from KME, WE, Edge Pro, etc. But, that's just my opinion. If you willing to chance it, go for it and see how it works.

    That's the way I was thinking by going with the WE GO, I was just curious if anyone had experience with the other system... I wasn't too keen on being a test case for product development...

    Looks like a clone. Sounds like a clone. Is there anything unique about this product? If it's just a lower priced clone, I would personally stay away. Don't inventors deserve to sell their product?

    While not exactly like the GO, it's pretty dang close. The arms and joints look almost identical. Basically this is a clone of the concept, mechanics and workings of the GO. I wonder what kind of design patents WE has on the GO?
