Lansky Knife Sharpener

Well I wasn’t planning on doing any posts this weekend but my father-in-law needed his kitchen knives sharpened and asked me to do it.  I was so happy with the way his Lansky Knife Sharpener worked i had to write this up.  The 3 stone sharpener system is really a great setup.  I went through all of the kitchen knives and then I sharpened all my folding knives that i had with me.

The way is works is you clamp the knife into the holder and then you use the stones, which have a metal rod attached to them to run across the knife blade.  You can see in the pictures that the clamp has 4 holes it in.  You use put the metal bar on the stone into that hole, and that lets you keep the angle accurately on the knife.  The 4 angles are 17, 20, 25, 30.

I plan on picking one of these up soon, but as i just got everything sharpened, i don’t have to rush.
