Lansky Sharpening System - Deluxe Kit
I have tried many types of knife sharpeners with mediocre results but, this system is the real deal. With the angle guide you get exact honing with every stroke of the stone. Its fairly easy although set-up is a little bit of a hassel. Its worth the trouble cause you get razor sharp edges.

Maybe it's just me, since I had read some good reviews for this product; in fact; that's why I bought it. I've always sharpened my knives with a single whetstone with great results. I thought this was going to make sharpening my knives easier - wrong. I used it once and will probably never use it again. It was late getting to me since it was delivered to the wrong address. Bass-Pro did subtract the shipping fee for that mistake. I actually wish I could get a refund and just purchase a single stone. For me, it was a waste of my hard earned money. First time I've ever been disappointed with a Bass-Pro purchase.

Sharp and easy
I bought this kit on Monday and tried it out last night on two hunting knives. It is very easy to use and each knife easily cut through paper edges w/ very little pressure and no sawing motion. I bought the base stand for it, but found it easy enough and more comfortable to sit on the couch to do. I tightened the clamp well and made sure the guide rods were level w/ the stones and did not have any issues. The procedure is pretty simple, but Lansky does have a video demonstration on their website of how to use the kit and the correct motion to use the stones. Overall, I am very pleased and would buy it again.

I received this set as a gift a few years back.. It is a great way to keep all your knives sharp and eliminates the need or worry to keep the blade at the right angle when sharpening. It's easy to use and will last you a lifetime. I bought a few more sets of these for gifts last year and everyone I gave it to loves this set for either keeping the hunting knives and work knives sharp.
