4.0 out of 5 stars Lansky sharpener
Great quality sharpener which I found very good at sharpening little knives but not so easy to use on larger knives.
Only gripe is the poor quality plastic storing box which doesn't close properly.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for blunt, non damaged knives. Possibly better for "field" rather than kitchen knives.
Had some knives that were destroyed by a cheap sharpener in the past and this has done the trick with restoring the edge on some of them.

A few words of caution.

For a long knife like a carving knife this system will only sharpen a small length of the cutting edge in one go, meaning that the blade has be be re-sited a few times.

Once I got used to using it, it was easy to use but like most things it takes a little getting used to;it is a good sharpener producing nice sharp edges to all our knives.

Nice and easy to use knife sharpener and does a good job. I would most definitely recommend getting the pedestal mount to make your life easier. My only complaint is that it doesn't hold the knife too well for smaller knives as you need to leave more than 0.5" overhanging to be able to sharpen the blade, so thin knifes like some typical kitchen knives and penknives are a bit tricky to sharpen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant sharpening system, 12 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lansky Sharpeners Standard Sharpening System (Sports)
This a great system because it produces a consistent grind angle from tail to tip. This version is the standard oil-stone version. I would recommend that as a starter kit. It is particularly quick and effective on "softer" material blades which tend to need more frequent sharpening. Initial sessions may take longer to produce the desired grind angle from the original unknown angle. 25deg is a general purpose angle, 20deg for quality kitchen knives. Once that is achieved then just a pass or two to restore edge condition.

Possibly harder material knives might benefit from the diamond version.

Hard at work now restoring edges destroyed by inferior systems.

I got my old kitchen knive sharpened again. And it is fun to cut tomatoes again. Product works fine and is easy to use. Delivery was also ok and the price is reasonable.

Easy to use and does what it says on the tin!! Only used on a couple of knives so more 4.5 than 4 at the moment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has a 'made in the sweatshops of china' feel to some of it but works like a charm., 19 May 2015

Works great but the plastic has a cheap and tacky feel, as does the clamp. The clamp will also come into contact with the hones at the lower angles if the knife is of a certain size or shape. This includes using the table mount.
However it gets knives razor sharp and that's all that matters.

It's easy to get a nice sharp edge even on cheap knifes (It will cut hairs from your arm, but not razor sharp) with this kit - I'm consider buying another stone (super fine).
