    Since I make and sell a couple of custom accessories and I am friends with other members who do the same, I thought I would post a list of items and links to the appropriate posts that describe the products so new users could find all the offerings that are currently available.

    This is probably not a complete list, just what  I know of at the time of writing:  If anyone is interested in these items please contact the maker via the forum private message system.

    Stone Storage: ” Rack-it “ Info can be found in this long running thread, I have linked to the most recent page that has pictures of some of Marc’s current builds. https://knife.wickededgeusa.com/forums/topic/we-stone-racks-for-sale/page/10/

    Micro Adjusters with thumb wheel locks and spring loaded lock downs:    https://knife.wickededgeusa.com/forums/topic/mods-lets-see-em/page/12/#post-51772

    NOTE: The below Stone Stops, Strop covers, Whetstone covers, and Finger guards are now also offered by Ed K. with the purchase of the above shown Micro Adjuster Kits.  Should you be interested in his adjusters along with my accessories when buying Ed’s, this way you can save on shipping costs.

    Stone Stops: These keep your stone from dropping below the bevel or coming off the top of the bevel.  https://knife.wickededgeusa.com/forums/topic/stone-stops-with-rebound-caps-and-nylon-screw/

    Non Magnetic  Stone/Glass/Strop angle cube adapter: Allows the use of magnetic angle cube without having to hold the cube while setting the angle  https://knife.wickededgeusa.com/forums/topic/adapter-caps-for-non-magnetic-stones/#post-51688

    Strop Covers: Will fit new and old WE handles https://knife.wickededgeusa.com/forums/topic/strop-covers-fit-old-and-new-handles/

    WhetStone Covers : Will fit new and old WE handles equipped with Shapton Whetstones to keep them clean in dirty envrionments.

    Finger Guards: These guards drop down over the platen and fit up against the outer ear of the handle behind the stone to keep your finger out of harms way.  A second unexpected advantage is the added stability and control with more surface area between fingers and handle  https://knife.wickededgeusa.com/forums/topic/help-with-sharpening-techniques/#post-53576

    For a new user buying a Pro Pack 3:   What would be the most essential/important accessories to get started?   For example, should I get a set of the rubber boots like this one to protect the ball joints?  Should I get longer guide rods (PP3 includes the 10″ ones) for when I’m using the Low Angle Adapter?

    Lee, welcome to the W.E. forum.  I too use a Pro Pack.  Mine has been modified and accessorized.

    The boots do work well to keep the steel dust out of the ball ends.  I make use of them.  They are what I call a maintenance item because they just sit there.  Once they’re in place you don’t touch then or think about them.

    Now the safety shields even though they do just sit there, they are used for every knife I sharpen.  They place a physical barrier between the knife edge and my fingers.  I don’t sharpen any knives without using the safety shields.  They are very important to me for my safety.  I have not cut myself again since I started using them years ago.

    The micro-angle adjusters are an accessory I use with every knife I sharpen and with every grit I change.  The adjusters improve adjustment ease and enhance locking.  They really make the sharpening experience easier, more pleasurable and more consistent.

    I also use stone stops, both upper and lower, to position my stone range up and down along the guide rods.  They prevent scratches to the knife sides from the stones going too far below the knife edge and damage to the knife edge from the stones that slid up and off  above the edge.

    The micro-angle adjusters and stone stops are great time savers and effort savers.  They help the quality of my sharpening  and keep the results consistent.

    Other accessories I always make use of with every knife I sharpen are a USB microscope, and longer guide rods.  I also use a more precise and accurate digital angle device.

    ^Thank you, very helpful to have a ‘short list’ of items to get started!  Versus all the goodies which will be tempting to add later. 🙂

    Just to be clear…they are helpful accessories.   None of them are necessary to produce extremely sharp, mirror polished knife edges with the Wicked Edge sharpeners.  They help those of us who have learned how to use our W.E. sharpeners to use them more easily and efficiently.  Only after you’ve learned how to produce a sharp knife edge with your W.E., will using of these accessories become helpful.

    Hi Lee, not sure what all you got with your system but my first  upgrades were longer rods and the angle cube.  If you do only folders the long rods are probably not that important but long or tall kitchen knives the make things a little nicer.

    ^Thanks, I haven’t actually gotten system yet but planning tomorrow to pull the trigger on a PP3.  So everything that comes with that, and otherwise, just want to start with the short list of things I’d need for safety, basic functionality, and sharpening all my knives (including large FB’s/machetes up to 15″.   I’ve been sharpening a long time so I have some things I’d need already, like an angle cube.

    Besides PP3, based on what’s been said, will probably start with:  12″ guide rods, safety shields, axle boots for the ball joints.
