        Wow such good pricing! This is awesome for the knife community!

        Kyle, will you also be offering 2017 quarter inch Jaws?

          I just happened to call about the 2017 vice upgrade yesterday and ordered the vice and ball arm upgrade.  Perfect timing and can’t wait to get it!

              Hey Josh, yes. The 2017 1/4″ jaws are in production right now. We should have them within a week.

                I received my 2017 Gen 3 vice for my Pro Pack 2 this past Monday.  I LOVE IT!  So much simpler to clamp and get correct positioning than the old style vice.  No allen key to mess with to mount and unmount a blade! None of the rotation when tightening, true vertical every time!!  Also, the clamping pressure adjustment works perfectly!

                When mounting the vice to the granite base, I included the pro pack 2 spacer and it works great!  I never bottom out the stones when working on a blade.

                I would recommend the 2017 gen 3 clamp to anyone using a WE system!  Fantastic job to the WE team!  Thank you to Clay and Kyle!!!  Awesome product!!

                        I am sure not everyone is as “in the dark” as I am, but FYI. The upgrade kits (and a selection tool) are available on the WE product site. Admittedly, I don’t often check the main product site as often as the forum … but, when I called to order my jaw upgrade for my pre 2017 Gen 3, got the word that I could order it directly from the site. So, like me, now you know!
