Excellent sharpener, but some quality control problems
The tool is simplicity itself: like the Spyderco Tri-Angle sharpmaker, the Lansky wood body holds long medium grit ceramic rods at two sets of specific angles. For beginner sharpeners, this type of system is relatively easy to use: you simply hold the knife blade vertical, and cut/pull the blade towards you, alternating sides until you hear hear the sound of the sharpening change (as the knife gets sharp, the feel and the sound both let you know this). I have bought three sets in recent weeks as I visit my different host's houses around the US and Canada—and try to cook in their kitchens. Everyone knows how dangerous a blunt knife is, so my gift to them all was the gift of a keen edge. I did notice, though, that the precision of the holes drilled in the timber body on the last two sets was not in any way perfect, and the looseness of the fit meant that the rods were not held perfectly firmly, as they were on the first set I bought. I could not return them (my schedule did not allow that turnaround time), and the system worked as delivered, but the overall feel was not as good as the first set. I intend on buying myself a set to complement my Spyderco setup, so mention this as a cautionary to other buyers. Excellent tool, sometimes less-than-perfect execution.

Excellent function and looks beautiful on the benchtop, too
The particular grit profile of the alumina ceramic rods sharpens quickly and both the feel of the edge on the rods AND the change in sound tells the user accurately when that stage of the sharpening process is complete. I own this system as well as the original Spyderco tri-angle system, and for my good kitchen knives, I much prefer the Lansky. Partly this is due to the length of the Lansky rods (longer) and the grit profile. I was able to get an excellent utility edge on one of my Shuns with only 6 strokes per side; very fast.
