Buck Knives Sharpening Stones
OK; which the hell side is the diamond side and which is the ceramic. Whoever wrote the directions needs a new job.
Love this sharpener it's very effective and quick. My only gripe is the size. It's smaller than I expected and is difficult to place on a platform. I usually resort to holding it and sharpening that way.
Grandson loved it.
I tried to find this sharpening stone in stores. They used to be everywhere.It's the best and easiest way to sharpen a knife for me. Took me about five minutes to get it sharp enough to shave with.
Very good. Sharpens all kind of knifes in an easy and effective way. I recommend it
Worked wonders on my knives, and it is easy to use.
Works fine. Nothing fancy. Was able to take a grossly dull blade and get it decent fairly easily. The little plastic blade guide is just silly to me. Some may find it useful. I did not. Overall a decent kit for the money.
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.
