great product, great price
I debated buying this or the Spyderco system. I read some reviews, and it seems that there isn't much difference between the two, except pretty much the price. This is easy to use, stows well, and is a drastic improvement, for me, over sharpening freehand with a stone or using or 'prefab' sharpening "V" tools. In particular, I was having trouble sharpening my higher-end blades (Elmax, SV35, etc.). The steel's so hard that the prefab tools were not doing the job, and freehand it's hard to control the grind angle precisely enough to get the kind of result I want. No more. Use the grey (medium) rods first, then the white (fine). GREAT edge. And doing it is easy as (and remarkably similar to, in motion) slicing bread. I sharpened about 30 folding knives in about two hours, without rushing (3 at a time: 3 on the grey rods, switch to white, 3 on the white rods, on to the next 3). There's also a triangular rod with three different angles for serrated knives. It made a massive difference on the bread knife in the kitchen. Wow. Only one niggle: the rods are stowed under the bottom of the unit, but there's no guard or door over them. Given that ceramic rods can break if dropped on a hard surface, I put a couple of rubber bands around the thing when I stow it. Highly recommended.

Cons: None
Nice and Easy
I've been using this system to sharpen my very dull kitchen knives, but also my folding and fixed blade outdoor knives. It has been putting a very good edge on them and the ease of use has made it pretty easy to maintain them. It would be great if Lansky would include a set of coarse rods though, just to round out the system.

Good value for the price
Tried this item on a few different steels (9Cr18MoV, SR101, 12C27, 420HC) up to the point of a very good utility edge (not shaving sharp which it seemed it would take a while if possible with these rods) in a fair amount of time, despite this being my first time using this sharpening method. So, very happy with it overall, seems very good for the price point.

Cheap
Well I can't say how well it works because one of the medium rods was broken when it arrived! The base seems to be poorly built. I have been using sharpening sticks for years but only fine grit, and after buying this system I still only have fine grit sticks! This isn't the first problem I have had with a purchase from Knife Center but it will be the last, I will never buy from them again!
