Since 1979, Lansky Sharpeners have been acknowledged as the world leader in sharpening technology. Each Lansky Sharpener is designed to meet exacting performance, reliability and safety standards. A pioneer of fixed angle sharpeners, Lansky has made knife sharpening virtually foolproof, as well as completely ambidextrous. With Lansky Sharpeners you can choose from four different sharpening angles.
30 degree Angle: An outstanding angle for knives that see use as utility knives, like those used to cut cardboard, pallet straps or carpeting.
25 degree Angle: This is the recommended angle for most knives that need a durable, sharp edge. An ideal angle for hunting and outdoor knives.
20 degree Angle: A commonly used angle for higher grade, quality blades. Provides an excellent edge that is perfect for kitchen knives.
17 degree Angle: A severe angle only recommended for razor blades, X-Acto blades or similar tools. Yields an xtremely sharp, but delicate edge.

BladeMedicTM Knife Sharpener
The BladeMedicTM Knife Sharpener is the first responder for field repairs on all types of knife blades. It’s like having an entire sharpening kit right in your pocket.
To set an edge for an extremely dull blade, or to sharpen the blade in seconds if the need arises. Just three or four strokes using moderate pressure will restore your blade. Note: Tungsten Carbide is extremely aggressive, and should only be used for super quick sharpening as the need arises. For general edge maintenance, use the Serrated Ceramic element (3), or the Diamond Tapered Rod (4).
2. Ceramic Sharpening Rods.
Polish and finish an edge in three or four strokes. Always use the Ceramic Rods as the finishing step to using the Carbide element. The Fine Ceramic Rods can be used on their own to provide a “touch-up” sharpening to relatively sharp blades. The Fine Ceramic Rods are not very aggressive and can be used on your blade often.
3. Serrated Knife Sharpener
Designed to get inside small and large serrations. Always move the blade away from your hand. For Larger serrations, use a sweeping motion with the sharpener to cover the entire surface of the serration.
The Medium Grit Ceramic element can also be used on it’s own in a benchstone type fashion, or like a butcher’s steel (See 3a above). The Medium Ceramic element is harder than steel, will never wear out, and should be used often as the primary sharpening element of your BladeMedicTM. Eventually metal shavings will accumulate as dark streaks on the ceramic and will slow effectiveness. Clean with a Lansky EraserBlockTM.
4. Diamond Tapered Rod
For very fast reconditioning and maintenance of both straight and serrated blades. Excellent for gut hooks. The Tapered shape of the Fine Diamond Rod allows for greater versatility enabling the user to quickly sharpen small and large serrations, or to use like a butcher’s steel on straight blades. It is recommended that the Diamond Rod be used sparingly. Its recommended use is for when sharpening speed is crucial, or for hard to sharpen items such as gut hooks. (The use of lubrication/honing oil is not recommended with our diamond sharpening products.)
Be Smart, Be Safe and Stay an Edge Above the Rest!
CAUTION: Knife sharpening is an inherently dangerous activity. Used properly this sharpener cannot hurt you but a carelessly handled blade or pointed object can.
