I have one

I love it. Fast, repeatable, ideal for my uses. You must be very careful to remember that the edge is straight up. Have read reports of people slicing themselves badly by being forgetful and letting their hands go “over center”.
There are several models, so you can tailor your purchase to your needs and budget.
If you have specific questions, there is a forum accessible through wickededgeusa.com. I might be able to answer some questions, but I haven’t used mine a great deal so far.
HTH,
Jack

Holy Moly, that's expensive!!

I'll stick to my giant "medium" diamond stone and my large Ultra-fine ceramic, thanks. They have served me well over 15 years now. The diamond for roughing a new edge or for kitchen use (to leave some "tooth") and the ultra-fine to finish - unless it is a little knife, in which case it gets the razor-strop treatment as well.

I've had my Wicked Edge for years now. I sharpen everything from my good kitchen knives ,tactical and EDC knives even scissors .By far the best sharpener I've ever used and I've used many .Once you get the desired edge and record it the repeatability is so awesome and quick .Some people say it's expensive and I agree ,but it is super well made . I believe the best sharpener out there like .The old saying buy the best and cry once is certainly true in this case.

I too have owned my wicked Edge sharpener for years and I have sharpened hundreds of knives with it. I have sharpened the knives at 17 fire stations during that time and was paid in many 6 packs and bombers of beer and many many bottles of wine. Never charged a penny! There were three ER visits by on duty firefighters over the years requiring a total of 17 stitches. Those who were cut were careless and cut themselves because of it. No one ever blamed me for their mishaps. Whenever I left a station after sharpening the knives the guys would put a warning sign above the knife block or drawer. “Caution! Knives are (my last name) sharp!”
I just retired on Saturday and a bunch of us got together to have a few beers. I was reminded during that get together that there were knives that needed sharpening at various stations and I would always have an open invite to lunch or dinner.
The Wicked edge (with a digital magnetic angle indicator) when you get to know it’s shortcomings will sharpen a knife stupid sharp from tip to handle. Get the upgraded base extension and guiderod kit! Make sure the base is level and then the blade in the clamp is plumb to the base. Sometimes you have to shim one side of the clamp. Do not trust the degree markings on the stone guide, use the angle indicator on the stones. With a kitchen knife I can slice a tomato in half then lay each half cutside down on a cutting board and then slice the tomato horizontally into thin slices with out touching the tomato with my hand. I can sharpen my cheap Chinese Buck pocket knife so sharp that it will cut duck tails in a human hair. I can touch an errant mustache hair with the tip of the knife and it will just pop off. It is easy to read printed text in the reflection of the polished edge, works just like a mirror. I love the leather strops and diamond paste.....

Im considering the Wicked as an upgrade over the Edge-Pro I've been using. The edge pro does ok on small blades, but I find it is too unstable for large blades, making stone angle difficult to maintain consistent. If I get a wicked, do I have to specify diamond stones to get those? I plan to work on some D2 blades as well as traditional carbon blades.
