    Hello everyone..

    We’ve just recieved our Wicked Edge-tool. Immediately, we started using it, but somehow, it moved round the table.
    In the picture on the box, the machine is fixed on a stone plate, which was actually not in the box.
    Indeed, we weren’t able to sharp the knife properly, because the tool isn’t fixed. 🙁

    We wonder right now:
    1) Have we done any kind of mistake concerning the construction of the tool?
    2) Is there a stone plate included as shown in the picture?
    3) If the stoneplate is not included, where can we get one?

    I appreciate every kind of help and answer.

    If you purchased the basic kit, it does not come with the base (the stone plate you refer to).

    If you purchased the Pro Kit, it does come with a base.

    Either way, you can order a base from Wicked Edge directly. Or mount the sharpener to some other material that you want to use. The bases straight from Wicked Edge do come pre-drilled so you just bolt it on in that case.

    I have a Pro Kit on the way (I hope I get my shipping email soon).

    Wow, if you have it bolted to the base, I can’t understand how it could be moving around too much… Mine is solid as a rock, and I only have the paperstone base. I work with it on my lap quite a bit so far, it seems to be a convenient way to use it. Is the tool sliding a bit on the base, or is the whole base moving around on you?

    The basic kit does not come with a base, but you can use almost anything for a “do it yourself” base. How about an old wood cutting board? Your kit should have come with a template for drilling the holes in your do it yourself base.

    Hope this helps!

    I tried it without a base and like you quickly realized a base was needed. I just used a piece of hickory I had thats 2x8x12 and its much better now.
