Few things are as annoying as a dull knife. Whether it's your pocket knife or chef's knife, you need them sharp and ready for action whenever you are.

That's why Knife Depot offers such a wide variety of knife sharpeners.

I have owned this type of Lansky sharpening system for many years. I recently ordered this one as a gift. I immediately noticed a difference between this kit and the one I have owned for almost 10 years. The clamp guide is different. First, the new clamp is made of cast aluminum, the old one is made from machined aluminum, therefore the new one will be a LOT more brittle. Second, the new clamp is not quite as tall. This causes difficulty when using the 17% and the 20% slot guides on some knives. Third, the very tip of the clamp guide is recessed and has little rubber grips glued into the tip of the guide, I find these rubber grips are prone to slipping during use. My first reaction was to contact Lansky. I do have to say there were a LOT of gripes on their website about the very same issue(s). Lansky did reply to me via email and explained that they seem to acknowledge the issue(s), and have a redesigned clamp guide coming out in Jan or Feb of 2016. The new clamp guide should be available for purchase on their web site soon, we will see if they are really going to address this issue.
This is a good quality whetstone... Gives a very sharp and clean edge.
I love this sharpener. The fine is still a little bit on the abrasive side but with a piece of ceramic afterword you can't get any better
After you have really sharpened your knife this Yellow Coded stone polishes that shape-edge you put on your knife - it really polishes the apple.
Small enough to carry but sufficient to maintain a good edge on knives with non-serrated blades from 2 to 6 inches.
I like the sharpener. Seems well made & easy to get right angle on each side of blade.
This is a great sharpening system. It's easy to use and does a great job. It's pretty much fool proof. A must have for novices and the more experienced.
I used the stone on one knife, works very well. Eight inches in length make a lot of difference.
