Lanksy Knife Sharpening System Review

Lansky Professional Knife Sharpening System

If you're a junkie for sharp edges, as I am, you've probably tried nearly every tool or technique chasing the perfect edge.

The Lansky is one of the few products I've used which has withstood the test of time. Using a design which features a simple fixture into which the knife is clamped and stones guided by rods at preset angles, the Lansky offers tremendous precision that even the most advanced freehand sharpeners would find hard to match.

The preset angles take all the guesswork out of sharpening. Even a relative newbie can confidently return a dull knife to sharpness with a minimum of fuss. Although I'm primarily a dedicated freehand sharpener, I use mine on occasion for resetting bevels and other special sharpening tasks where absolute precision is the key to success. I'm still consistently impressed with the performance.

It's an excellent tool to have in your sharpening kit and one which is easy on the wallet compared to the cost associated with assembling a full kit of waterstones. The kit comes with four standard stones (coarse, medium, fine, ultra fine) and one triangular stone designed for use on serrated knives. Running up through the four grits, it's easy to produce a refined edge. For someone looking for an edge with a higher level of polish and refinement, the optional sapphire honing stone is highly recommended, providing a finish comparable to lower grit polishing waterstones.

The multiple preset angles built into the fixture provide a wealth of precision options for fine tuning and customizing edges. Generally speaking, the system works best on shorter knives, as it is necessary to move the clamp along the spine of longer knives in order to sharpen different sections of the blade. Although somewhat inconvenient, this doesn't affect the performance of the system one way or the other.

The results are well worth the effort.
