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!

Effectiveness & ease of use ...

A very good sharpening system for all my high quality EDC. Unfortunately the knife clamp have NO notch for small blades … and all the screws are from poor quality.

Standard Issue - Feature Lacking but functional

Lansky knife sharpening system is no stranger to the knifephillac community , so I'm not going to go through about how I use it or what is great about. Trial and tested , works pretty well on stainless steel , struggles a bit on harder carbon steel starting from 1060 , rendered next to useless when you move up to the super steel that is abrasion resistant. The arkansas stone system as expected is VERY durable due to the relative hardness of the natural oil stones but they tend to get clogged up quite quickly during sharpening so that's a problem. And as expected the guidance rods to have a tendency to get loose during sharpening , not to mention the clamp provided doesn't provide the most secure grip on the blade. Both of which will absolutely wreck your angle consistency. Once it slips , you'll have to go back to the start again. A trusty system , probably is great in 1987 , still functional in 2014 , aimed towards the knifeman on a budget . However if you're looking for something with a bit of finesse, you might want to look elsewhere.

I'll matched parts

Do not buy this or any other Lansky product. When trying to assemble the clamp to the universal stand the stand became stuck inthe bottom part of the clamp. The two parts are not milled to fit and it looks like I will have to replace both parts. Very poor quality control and the entire unit is extremely awkward to use. Save your money until you can buy an edgepro or a set of quality stones. Lansky makes crap.
