Lansky Deluxe Knife Sharpening System
The original and still the best knife sharpening system you can buy. The 5 sharpening stones come with the knife clamp, the guide rods, honing oil and instructions all in its own case.
This is probably the only system that is still made in the US, everything else has been farmed out to China. It is simple to use and comes with 5 stages of stone - Extra Coarse, Coarse, Medium, Fine and Super Fine.
It really will sharpen any knife to a shaving sharp finnish in minutes. I have been using one for years and haven't even had to replace the bottle of honing oil yet. A real winner.
There’s a bit of a learning curve with this but once mastered it’s possible to get a consistent, very sharp edge. Used on kitchen knives from a small paring knife to a 12” cooks knife the results were impressive. It is important to accurately measure the distance between the jaws of the clamp and the edge of gather blade and to ensure that the blade is parallel to the jaws. The angle of the jaw opening is adjustable to get the maximum grip on the blade and hold it firm in the device. There are a number of videos on YouTube etc demonstrating the use.
Initially a bit of a fiddle to set up but with practice, straightforward enough. Would recommend.
Use with the Super C Clamp or the universal mount for ease of use.
