    Lansky Deluxe Sharpening Set - Big Thumbs Up

    I got one of these for christmas and just wanted to note to anyone out there who isn't too skilled when it comes to getting a good edge on a knife, this kit is fantastic. I've never been able to get a decent edge on a knife despite trying various methods over the years so I took a punt on the lansky set up and I must say its the best thirty quid the missus has spent on me. I know there's plenty of threads covering different methods of sharpening, but if there is anyone out there who does struggle, I'd thoroughly reccomed giving the lansky a try. For the first time ever I've been able to get an edge that I can shave with - cracking peice of kit!.

    They are certainly very good.

    Though I don't use it so much these days, I've had one for years. About 20 years ago they were about the most sophisticated sharpening system you could get. They still do a great job of putting a defined bevel on a blade.

    +1 also from me.
    Don't use it regularly, have a pull through thing for that, but to redefine an edge they are good.

    Each to their own, but those pull-through things put my teeth on edge....and put teeth on my knife's edge

    I would be loath to sharpen a knife of mine using one. Anything on the Internet should be viewed with well-justified scepticism, but have a read of articles such as this: Knife Sharpening Techniques: Micro Photos of Identical Knives after Different Sharpening Methods
