  1. Undecided so farReview by

    HH's hyper-space delivery team got one of these to me this morning, along with a Universal Mount., and I have now spent a couple of hours playing with it.

    My initial reactions are somewhat mixed - no doubt influenced by the amount of blood on the kitchen worktop! First off, thanks to another reviewer who recommended wrapping the jaws of the clamp with masking tape, or insulating tape etc. I tried it without and it did mark the blade - using a cheap, black bladed Ganzo 7453 as an experiment. Secondly, I can't imagine how you could use this system without the Universal Mount. I used a G-clamp to securely locate it on the kitchen worktop which makes everything a lot more stable. The mount does have holes to allow you to screw it down to a workbench or whatever if preferred.

    As someone else has commented, the rods for the hones are clipped into the box so firmly that they are really difficult to get out - initially at least. I used a screwdriver to prise them out without bending them. I also found that the screws which clamp the rod to the hone have a tendency to loosen in use. Maybe I just didn't do them up tightly enough. Also, the post on the Universal Mount has a tendency to unscrew whilst you are working on the knife. If I was leaving it as a permanent assembly I would put some Loctite on it.

    Initially I had some difficulty in clamping the knife securely. Lansky do say that you should not over-torque the screw, and being steel into aluminium I was concerned about stripping the threads. But I did get it sorted eventually.

    So - does it actually sharpen knives? Well, I am probably the worlds worst knife sharpener, but after a bit of experimenting the Ganzo 7453 came up shaving sharp. My Magnum Damascus Stubby seems reluctant to take a decent edge, but that may be because I am using the wrong hones, or maybe it's down to the blade steel. So far I have only tried the system on these two.

    Finally, can anyone tell me why the instructions tell you to sharpen towards the blade? I have watched a couple of You Tube videos of people sharpening using wet stones, and they use a 'back and forth' motion. I tried this with the Lansky hones and personally I think it worked better.

    So overall, I think this system has potential if you take the time to learn how to use it. However, be prepared for the various screws to come undone as you sharpen. I think the biggest advantage of the system is the control of the sharpening angle, compared to my random attempts in the past. Oh yes, and the Lansky system was recommended to me by my local custom knife maker, who swears by (not at) it!

    I will persevere with it - watch this space!

    My father's an ex-butcher and to see him renew an edge with a steel is a thing of beauty. I am jealous and have never been able to learn.

    I'm ham-fisted with whet-stones and have never found a device that could install an edge worth calling an edge.

    Until this little box-kit. Beautifully presented and collected and with idiot-proof, stepped instructions (in plain English) I have restored a Victorinox, a Peasant, a very expensive kitchen knife and a vintage 6" antler-handled sheath knife - all to a point I can shave my arm! I'm actually looking for blunt knives!

  3. Great system Review by

    I've been using a spyderco sharpmaker ever since the first one they made that came in a nylon pouch. After finally needing to replace both medium stones due to use and also a fine rod due to breakage (dropped), I was going to buy another sharpmaker but instead chose the lansky deluxe.
    After the first quick use I was thinking I should have chosen the spyderco but stuck with it.
    After getting to grips with its differences I really started to like it and now happy I purchased this instead.
    There is just a bit more consistency with the lansky even if does take a little longer to set up and use.
    I'd highly recommend the stand for this system too. It just takes away my hand fatigue after re bevelling an edge.

    I wish I'd bought one of these years ago! Definitely not something for someone wanting quick and easy, but if you have patience and you're willing to put some time into sharpening a knife then the results are amazing. I just ground a completely new edge onto an old kitchen knife in an hour and I can now shave with it!

    I recommend buying one of the Lansky stands to go with it.

  5. Not RecommendedReview by

    I have this system for 1-2 years now, did not wanted to write about it , until I will try it on different knife.
    I have got some issues with it:
    -Very hard almost impossible to fix the knife blade in the position that it won't move.
    -Not able to sharpen big knives (machete).
    -The grove in the clamp is useless as will not hold normal size knife unless is the Victorinox type knife.
    -It will give you every time you sharpen a new bevel as it is hard to aim the distance from the back of the blade.
    -It will make the bevel wider on every the curvature than the straight bit of the blade.
    -You need three hand to use this system, because of the flimsiness of it.
    -You need to place (Tape, Rubber, piece of carpet stopper mate) to let the clamp hold the blade.
    Hope it helps for new buyers.
