I got this stone a while back now and after using it on two different axes and a hatchet I would be happy to recommend it to anyone that's wanting a simple stone to sharpen up a little on the job.
Being puck shape it fits nicely in the palm and therefore does not present a problem when using with slimy wet hands etc.
Both sides of the stone offer a fairly standard grit choice and if your looking to have a shaving sharp edge then you will need a second stone much finer than this offers along with a decent belt for stropping.
If your just after a good sharp edge to your axe this will do the job fine.
Being puck shape, it also takes little room in your pocket or pack, is less likely to crack than the traditional block or cigar shape and it is quite intuitive keeping an even pitch using a circular motion.
My top tip would be to get hold of a pipe tobacco tin of the circular kind to store the puck in.
I found a "Dunbar original, ready rubbed" tin fits perfectly but I'm sure there are lots of other brand tins that would also fit well, you just need to take up pipe smoking and experiment lol.
It gets five stars from me as it's not expensive, it does what is required of it, its not heavy or bulky and it's easy to use.
Ultimately the test is, would I buy another if I lost this one? And the answer is,Yes.

Puts a decent edge back on a hatchet that's been through the wars a bit - what more can you ask? Recommend using with some sort of oil - I use vegetable oil with mine and it works just fine.

Has also been used to put an edge back on a knife that was in a terrible state, before fine-tuning it with a whetstone. Very useful tool.

Acquired to sharpen my axes (no, I am not a deranged axe murderer!), and works a treat. Have tried various methods re sharpening both hand and felling axes, and this shape of sharpener I have found works best. Highly recommended.

Arrived a day early, hand size, followed instructions and sharpened chopping axe and an abused utility hatchet. Achieved good cutting edges on both. I would buy again and can recommend.

This is a very useful and easy to use honing stone. Its great strength is that it is capable of being hand held and worked into hollow ground corners for axes.
Have only used the smooth side but it soon produces a sharp edge with a bit of light machine oil as a lubricant. Value for money and does what it says on the packaging. Highly recommended. Small enough to be portable in the outdoors.

Tried using an old wet stone to sharpen a new axe. Never really understood what the phrase "having an axe to grind" meant before ! If you don't get the grinding angle absolutely spot on, and the stone properly lubricated, you will end up with a blunt axe head, sore shoulder and generally frustrated. The Lansky Dual Grit Sharpener takes the strain out of sharpening any axe head (particularly if you use in conjunction with Lansky's honing oil), as the grinding angle can be easily maintained and adjusted if necessary. The dual grit is useful if you are trying to restore a really badly "dinged" or rusted axe head, but the finer grit is all you will need to bring out a razor sharp edge to any new axe head. It is also handy size to keep in my tool bag and not as brittle, fragile or cumbersome to carry around as a wet stone. I have used it to grind brand new axe heads and just to re-condition the axe after use. Wouldn't be without it.

Used to resharpen axes after use. I use sunflower oil from a Tesco spray to remove the gringings (and to protect the axes from moisture when not in use). I grip the puck with finger tips and do not apply pressure. Sharpen in a circular pattern, swapping sides regularly. The course side remives the inevitable dings, and the medium for final sharpening.
