Lansky C-Sharp & Deluxe 5-Stone Sharpening System

A sharp knife is a safe knife, but even the finest everyday carry blades will become dull through the rigors of daily use. And if you don’t have your own way of sharpening and maintaining your blades, it won’t matter whether your knife is made of expensive super-premium M390 steel or more affordable 8Cr13MoV because it won’t cut through anything anyways. The good news is that sharpening your knives isn’t a hard thing to do at all, especially if you have modern tools like the ones made by Lansky. Take the C-Sharp pocket tool for example, which is small enough to keep in your pockets or with the rest of your gear when you’re on the go. Then there’s their Deluxe 5-Stone System for more considered sharpening and honing when you’re at home. These are some of the best sharpeners in the business, and with them you can breathe new life into your dull knives, and save yourself a lot of trouble in the process too.

The Lansky C-Sharp is simple to use: you place the tool upright on a table and then pull your knife through any one of the V-shaped sharpening slots until you have a sharp knife. Each slot contains 600 grit ceramic sharpening materials, arranged in specific angles for the edge you’re trying to maintain, including the most common ones: 17, 20, 25, and 30 degrees. You should use the angle that corresponds most closely to the original grind of your knife but as a rule of thumb: the thinner the angle, the sharper your knife will be but it will potentially make things more brittle depending on the steel composition of the blade. And for knives with a single-sided edge, like chisel-style blades and Japanese cooking knives, there’s a larger 800 grit benchstone at the top of the tool. That benchstone also comes in handy when you’re trying to sharpen serrations as well.

For bigger, more considered sharpening tasks at home, the Lansky Deluxe 5-Stone System is your best bet. Unlike the C-Sharp, the Deluxe has a clamp that holds your blade in place, and you move the sharpening stones across the blade until your knife is sharp. There are slots on the clamp that correspond to the same set of common angles, letting you keep the right blade geometry on your knife, but the main difference is that there’s varying levels of coarseness on each stone included with the system. This lets you sharpen the edges on your knife in progressive steps. There’s extra-coarse grits for fixing really dull and damaged knives, medium and fine grit stones for regular maintenance, and an ultra-fine grit stone for getting razor-sharp performance. The complete system includes everything you’d need to maintain your blades, including honing oil, the multi-angle clamp, guide rods, and a carrying case to store them all neatly.

There’s no excuse for having a dull knife, but these Lansky sharpeners make the task of sharpening and maintaining your knives easy to accomplish. And the best part is these sharpeners won’t put a huge dent in your wallet: now through July 18, 2019, Everyday Carry readers can save 25% off the C-Sharp and all Controlled-Angle Systems at the link below with coupon code EDC19 at checkout.

Nice. An easy way for terrible sharpeners like me. I'm in. I don't really see the stone system working very well, but I'll get one of those c-sharps for a quick touch up.
I have the Lansky system, I have expanded it with several different stone, diamond, ceramic and leather strops over the years. It works great, and puts an amazingly razor sharp edge on any blade, because the angle is consistent with every stroke. Typically I start by profiling the edge with diamond hones of different courseness, then move to stone hones, then ceramic hones and finish up with leather strops. When I am done the edge is mirror bright and as sharp as you could ever want.
Dynamite rig. If you want super sharp knives and want to be able to reproduce a super fine edge, this kit is the way to go.
