Is the Wicked Edge Knife Sharpening System Worth the Money?

Wicked Edge Field and SportIn our family, my husband has always been the knife sharpener.

Recently I’ve been “expanding my horizons” and back in January I agreed to be interviewed for the first ever online Preppers World Summit. That went quite well and it paved the way for me agreeing to be a guest on the Sean Green Show that airs on WGN Plus Radio.
