Lansky Sharpening System - Diamond Kit
Great Sharpening System
I have used the Lansky Diamond Sharpening System for over 15 years. I have knives of high quality steel and stainless steel. It sharpens fixed and folding knives. The edge is shaving sharp with the fine diamond hone as the final step. The diamond hones do not lose their flat surface from wear like the stone hones and they last for years. Make sure you place the clamp in the exact same position for each sharpening. I draw a diagram on a piece of paper of the clamp position for each knife. I have some other sharpening systems and the Lansky Diamond is by far the best. Don't worry about the price, the Diamond System is well worth the money. Mickey H.

Love this product! Gives you the perfect angle on every stroke. The three different levels of coarseness allow you to sharpen a seriously neglected blade and make it razor sharp again. The different angle options allow you to decide what type of edge you put on your cutlery. Will recommend this to all my hunthing buddies.

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.

Good tool,Cheap Box!
I've been wanting a Lansky Sharpening System for a long time finally bought one. It does a great job gettting a blade sharp. However the storage box is cheap plastic. I'm sure the hinge will break sooner than later. Would expect better quality for the price paid. Will buy the base for future use it's a little hard to hold & I think the base will help.
