Lansky Diamond Deluxe Sharpening System

Extra Coarse, Coarse, Medium and Fine Hones

Keep all your knives honed with a professional, razor sharp edge with the Lansky Controlled-Angle Sharpening System. The system comes with four sharpening hones of different coarseness: an extra-coarse diamond (70 grit), a coarse diamond (120 grit), a medium diamond (280 grit), and a fine diamond (600 grit). As a result, you'll have the tools to sharpen virtually any type of kitchen, hobby, or garden knife. Diamond kits are very aggressive, and are the sharpener of choice for quickly setting an edge or resetting the edge to a different angle. That's because diamonds remove steel much faster than their aluminum oxide counterparts.

The system is easy to use, with a controlled-angle sharpening system built into the precision-engineered knife clamp. Simply secure the knife, choose your preferred angle, and you'll receive a sharp edge every time. Each of the four angle options is suitable for a different knife type. The severe 17-degree angle is recommended for razor blades, X-Acto blades, scalpels, and similar tools, as it provides an extremely sharp but delicate edge. The 20-degree angle is commonly used for higher-quality blades, making it ideal for kitchen cutlery and filet knives. The 25-degree angle is recommended for knives that need a durable, sharp edge, such as hunting and outdoor knives. And the 30-degree angle is recommended for heavy-duty knives that commonly cut cardboard, wire, or carpets.

Each honing stone is color-coded, with finger-grooved safety holders to keep your hand secure. The kit also comes with a guide rod for each honing stone, specially formulated honing oil, extra-long knife clamp screws, easy-to-follow multilingual instructions, and a custom molded storage/carrying case to hold all system components.

Key Features:
  • Hones include: Extra Coarse Diamond (70 grit), Coarse Diamond (120 grit), Medium Diamond (280 grit), and Fine Diamond (600 grit)
  • Precision-engineered, multi-angle, flip-over knife clamp
  • Sharpening hones on color-coated, finger-grooved safety holders
  • One guide rod for each honing stone
  • Specially formulated honing oil
  • Extra long knife clamp screws
  • Custom molded storage/carrying case to hold all system components
  • Complete easy-to-follow multi-lingual instructions
Sharpening Angles:
  • 17 degrees: A severe angle recommended for razor blades, X-Acto blades, scalpels or similar tools. Provides an extremely sharp but delicate edge.
  • 20 degrees: A commonly used angle for higher quality blades and provides an excellent edge for kitchen cutlery and filet knives.
  • 25 degree: The recommended angle for most knives that need a durable, sharp edge. Ideal for hunting and outdoor knives.
  • 30 degree Angle: An outstanding angle for knives that see the heavy use of cutting cardboard, wire or carpets. Recommended for heavy duty use.

I have used diamond stones for a long time and think that they are worth it.
Mikesfarm
I don't think you should have to use pliers to get a wobbly grip on the blade that mandates holding the knife with your free hand.

I've been using a sharpening stone for years and had little success getting knives razor sharp.

I've owned the Lansky system for almost 20 years and it perform perfectly and enable me to get fantastically sharp knives every time with a modicum of elbow grease but without any actual skill. Lansky's system is a brilliant arrangement of a knife clamp with sets of holes that ensure consistent grinding angle for the stones that have long steel guides. This solves the problem of how to hold the stone to the knife at a consistent angle. Using stones to sharpen your knives gives you total control and allows you to achieve the finest edge (much finer than using a chef's choice, motorized bench grinder (which can overheat the blade ruining the temper), or any of those ceramic wheel/rod dohickeys). The available angle choices are 17 degrees (for Asian knives), 20 and 25 (for Western knives) and 30 degrees (for hatchets). Lansky offers various different stones (from natural Arkansas stones, to diamond abrasive). This particular set includes 4 diamond sharpening stones - extra coarse, coarse, medium, and fine. The stones are excellent quality. The fine is fine enough to get your blades shaving sharp - but I personally added an extra fine stone for final stropping-like polish. The coarse ones cuts quickly, and really last. Non-diamond fine stones last, the the coarse ones wear out quickly (get ruts). The diamond ones last and last without ever needing to be trued up. That's the great thing about diamond stones. Lansky give you a bottle of sharpening oil to help carry away the metal shavings to keep the stones cutting. I don't like using oil so I keep a wet paper towel handy when sharpening and wipe the metal off the stones and blade periodically while sharpening that that works fine for me.Read more ›

I bought the deluxe diamond set for $60. The plus is that the diamond stones are well made and do a good job. The fact the deluxe diamond set comes with an extra coarse stone for initial re-profiling is also nice. There are two minuses, however, that make it disappointing for me. First, there are a lot of knives that don't fit very securely in the clamp. The ledge to grip the blades of thinner knives is practically nonexistent, and any tapered blade gets grabbed just at the spine and not across the flats. There usually isn't enough blade contact with the clamp jaws to keep it from sliding around or popping out altogether. Second, the guide rod system is not well designed. The L shaped bend and the thumbscrew that holds it to the stone isn't particularly precise. There is a lot of bending, adjusting and readjusting needed to keep the stone cutting at a uniform angle---and isn't that the reason for buying a clamping sharpening system in the first place?

I purchased the Smith's diamond system at Lowe's a couple of weeks after I bought this one on sale for $25. It only has two diamond stones (plus a triangular stone for serrated knives), but the guide rod system and blade clamp are MUCH more functional. Sadly, the two systems aren't interchangeable (at least not if you want to maintain a consistent angle). For one brief moment I hoped the Smith's guide rods could screw into the thumb screw holes, but sadly the thread pitch is different. Even though the Smith's system only comes with a coarse (rather than extra coarse) hone It isn't noticeably slower at re-profiling because it's twice as wide as the Lansky stones. The extra surface area makes up for the smaller grit size.

Just ordered and got this kit. I went to sharpening pocket knives that have been dull forever. Well not any more! This is a great kit to sharpen with. There are a few ways they could make it better.

1. The extra course hone really isn't needed unless you are re-profiling the knife. Replace it with a Ultra Fine hone instead.

2. If you buy this kit, order the the Yellow Ultra Fine Hone and the Purple Sapphire hone. The transition between the fine diamond hone and the sapphire is quite great and the yellow ultra fine is between them. I used this combo and my knives came out with almost a mirrored edge.

3. Buy the c-clamp kit for sure. It is worth twice what they want for it. The goofy base they have for sale you will have to hold down, and it makes the sharpening process really suck. I am going to mod the clamp kit to add a hole right in the middle of the upright, in order to thread in a screw to hold down the knife clamp. This mod will completely free up my hands to make steady work of running the hones. I wish they had done this from the factory.

4. If your knife is very small, cut out a section of bicycle inner tube and use it in the clamp to keep the blade from sliding around. The tube will give the clamp traction to hold the small blade in place.

5. Patience is key to learning. Don't rush the sharpening process. If you take time and care, even your first blade will come out insanely sharp!

6. I purchased this kit, the yellow and purple hones, the medium and fine serrated hones, the clamp, and an extra box. The box needed some plastic removed in order for the clamp to fit, but I now have the entire system in 2 boxes neatly setting on my shelf.
