Great System
I've used this sharpening system on a wide variety of knives, and so far this is the most effective method of creating a consistent edge for many different steel types.

Lansky Kit
LANSKY SHARPENING KITS

Sharpening is a technique that every knife owner should know. Using a stone requires one to get the "science" of it all down pat. But Lansky sharpening kits eliminate all the guesswork involved, making sharpening a foolproof operation. Even your kid brother could do it (that's if you trust him with sharp, pointy objects!) As Lansky's saying goes, it's the "sharpest investment you'll ever make!" Now, on with the show.

Lansky Sharpeners produces several models of such kits, varying in the number of hones and type of hones (regular or diamond). For those not familiar with a Lansky, each kit contains the following: an aluminum knife clamp, bottle of honing oil, guide rods, and a molded plastic storage case. All you do is attach the clamp to the blade, assemble the rods to the hones, apply a light coating of oil to the desired stone, choose the appropriate angle, and begin. Flip the clamp over and work on the reverse side of the blade. Soon, you'll have a razor sharp edge. One feature I like about the kit is that there are very detailed instructions on how to set up and sharpen.

I've had my Lansky for a few years, and I'm extremely pleased with its performance. The kit is so versatile as well. I've managed to hone everything from meat cleavers to Victorinox Classics, and everything in between. Best of all, it does not take long to set up or create a mess to clean up afterwards. I've also sharpened knives for friends, and they were thoroughly impressed with the results produced. In my opinion, a Lansky is definitely money well spent. You are guaranteed a razor sharp edge every time. What's really nice about the Lansky system is that there are options available for the user to customize his/her kit. For example, there is an aluminum universal mount that will support the clamp, permitting the whole assembly to freely stand on a table top. Also available is a V-section serration hone, making it possible to bring dull serrations back to life. Sharpening serrations with this hone requires the user to work the hone inside each and every tooth. Even for partially serrated blades this will take some time, but the results make it all worthwhile to take that extra time. All in all, Lansky sharpening kits take the precise science out of sharpening. In fact, sharpening has never been this easy, ever! I think you owe it to yourself by purchasing one of these kits. The results are well worth the small fee involved. You'll be sure to "hone" your sharpening skills with one!

Easy to use
Really simplifies the tedious task of sharpening your blade. A very simple system that ensures that you maintain the necessary angle throughout the sharpening process. Leaves the blade scary sharp.

just learning
I have been using it for about 2 weeks now sharpening most of my knives and i'm able to put a shaving edge on the crappiest of my collection, which is some cheapy china made plastic handle p.o.s. Overall i'm happy with it. It's no Edge Pro but then again it's only $35. I did have to research sharpening to learn how to get the proper edge, the directions arn't enough and i have never tried to sharpen with any seriousness till now. I would recogmend buying the stand, my hand got tired hold my heavier knives(around 10oz.)removing factory edge, which can take a while. I will be buying more stones and either buying or making a stand for it. A good buy for the beginner or an inexpensive portable.

Lansky Standard Knife Sharpening System
I'm rating four as my husband has not had the opportunity to try out this sharpening system to date, but I feel quite sure he will like it. I watched the video and it looks simple enough to use. When used I will respond with a new review.
