Lansky Knife Sharpening System Standard & Deluxe Review
The Lansky Knife Sharpening System is one of the most popular knife sharpeners available today. It was developed by Stanley Black & Decker (S&D) in the late 1960’s and it became very popular among knife enthusiasts because of its simplicity, ease of use, low cost, and high quality. The main selling point of the system is that it uses a combination of steel stones and abrasive pads to sharpen your blade.
Although there are many other brands of knife sharpener out there, none have the same level of quality or reliability as S&D does. They offer a lifetime warranty on their products. If something goes wrong with them, they will replace it at no charge to you!
So what makes the Lansky Sharpening System so good?
Well, first off, it is designed to sharpen all types of knives including pocket knives, fixed blades, axes and machetes. You can even use it on hunting rifles if you’re into that sort of thing. It comes with two different sets of stones: a coarse set for cutting through wood and a fine set for finer work such as polishing brass or bronze parts.
With this system, you never have to worry about accidentally grinding off too much metal and weakening the blade. The clamp keeps the knife secure in place and at a precise angle so that you can be sure that you are getting an even bevel on the edge. The clamp can also be used to create custom angles for specialized cuts such as slicing through fiberglass. It even has non-slip rubber feet to keep it from sliding around on your work surface. It is lightweight and durable.
It also comes with a plastic base that keeps the stones protected when they are not in use.
With proper use and care, your knife should be sharper than what you could get from a factory. The blades are guaranteed to stay sharp twice as long as a steel would. This means that your blades will not only perform better but they will also last longer. You can use this system to touch up the blades on your older knives as well. The Lansky Sharpening System is one of the best knife sharpeners available.
With proper care, it can give you a lifetime of perfect cuts!
