    Using the advanced alignment guide in a 2017 pro 3 what should be the address for the manix 2 including upper or lower hole placement?

    Here’s the link to the W.E. users sharpening settings submitted for their knives: https://wickededgeusa.com/pages/knife-sharpening-settings-submitted-by-customers

    Click the search, (magnifying glass far right-top and enter “Manix 2” for those submitted listings.  It appears that most of the listing were made with the original standard alignment tool.

    Here are the alignment guides superimposed to give you a comparison.  As you see the original alignment guide is just a ruler labeled A,B,C, & D with hash mark indicators for 1/2 units. It is interpolated for smaller divisions.  This compares with the Advanced Alignment Guide, (AAG) with a capital letter for each 1/4 unit corresponding to the original alignment guide.

    The user’s submitted suggestions were B.25 with the original guide in the bottom key holes.  This would translate to E-1/2 on the AAG, for the horizontal or “X” axis and the vertical height on the line under 6 and above 7, on the “Y” axis.  Again using the depth key positioned in the bottom holes.  There were no more specific mounting instruction so I would clamp the blade as vertical as possible.  Then check the sweet spot with a marker, which is the ultimate indication for proper clamping position.
