Last I read pre orders would start shipping on the 20th. Anybody hear anything? I sharpened the wife's kitchen knives and a couple folders on Thanksgiving on my Edge Pro. The EP puts an amazing edge and works well but it just reinforced why I bought the WE, I hate switching hands and depending on the blade geometry sometimes find it difficult to keep the blade flat while sharpening.
Not a hit on the EP because if it was my only option I would be fine but I really really want to try out the WE system, which seems like it may be the perfect one for me.
So anyway Clay, hurry up and ship the damn things already! Lol
I'm anxiously awaiting my pre-order.
I'm hopeful before Christmas, but with the recent silence (there were 2 update emails before) I am a little on edge

Emailed them last week, they told me mid-late December.
That sucks. They aren’t very close to their original estimate.
Received this email this evening-
Wicked Edge GO Production Update
We just received an update that the final phase of production for the Wicked Edge GO sharpeners will wrap up next week. The first batch was sent to be anodized today and should be back at our shop in Phoenix by next Tuesday where they will be laser engraved and assembled before shipping to our facility in Santa Fe for QC and fulfillment.
If all goes well, we will begin shipping the units the week of December 11th. We will have all hands on deck, working evening shifts and weekends to get them to you as quickly as possible. The sharpeners will be fulfilled in date order, meaning that those ordering first will have their sharpeners ship first. We’re hoping to send approximately 100 GOs per day to clear the pre-order list, which will probably take us through the 20th for the most recent orders. While we will do everything we can to deliver these before Christmas we can not guarantee this due to UPS and USPS holiday shipping cut offs and delivery schedules.
In the meantime, I’ve made a couple of short videos to help you get started with your new sharpener and will be adding more next week. In the videos you’ll see the latest production sample. I am extremely impressed with the build quality and fit and finish of the unit. It’s even nicer than I’d expected. I hope that once you finally receive your unit, you’ll love it for years to come.

Anybody thinking of adding stones to their GO? I like to occasionally polish an edge on my Edge Pro and would like to do the same on this one.
I was thinking of adding the ceramic 1200/1600 stones and 3.5/5 micron strop.
What does the brain trust think? Did I skip too many steps, overkill? What would be a reasonable mans progression after the stock 200/600 stones that comes with it?

I think it depends on the knife.
Not every knife benefits from a smoother surface.
I bought the original in 2009 and it still works great.
I have some of the finer stones and even the leather strop but I never go much further than the 600/800 (blue/purple) on a lot of knives, but some I do.
