    As a 10 year WEPS user with great results I have seen a proliferation of many jig systems trying to do the same thing. Even Jende has a real nice looking one now. However, they all seem to have horizontal knife mounts vs. the WEPS vertical. Besides the WEPS advantage of doing both sides at once, WEPS allows you to adjust the position only once to optimize angles and bevels from toe to tip especially along the curve to the tip (per Anthony Yan’s great mathematical proof). I find it results in tighter curves being positioned closer to the fixed rod mount. I use my finger on the rod to eyeball the best curvature (following) while clamping. It would seem to me that while you can do that on the horizontal setups when you flip the knife that you would lose that optimal position. WDYT ?
