Lansky Sharpening System - Diamond Kit
Not worth the MONEY
I have had a Lansky sharper in the past but lost it. So i went to buy a new one and thought the diamond model would be better. It cost more than the standard kit but is not worth it, takes off way to much metal and will mess up your knife.
I went back and bought the standard kit, it works great. like it should.

The Good and the bad
I used this product on a lot of my knives from carbon to stainless and its does a great job, but the storage box leaves something to be desired. I built a wooden
box for storage and now I'm totally happy. To bad the original box was so bad.

For the price it's in a very cheap plastic box. Expected better. After using the diamond system, it did a good job on a few hunting and fishing knives. The knives were in good condition when I started, but came out with a much keener edge.

Over rated, does not work
I have a number of high-dollar kitchen knives and bought this sharpener to, well, sharpen them. To start, they mixed up the grain on the coarse and medium hones....I've shown it to at least 15 people, and every one of them said the hone labeled "coarse" was less abrasive than the one labelled "medium". OK, so I switch the order that I use them. Despite following instructions carefully and having watched a number of Youtube videos, this thing just does not sharpen my knives. In most cases, they are worse off. A buddy brought over the Spyder sharpener and it had my knives razor-sharp in just a few minutes. I would not recommend this, at least for high end kitchen knives.
