This is a great product for all you Lansky users out there; it really saves some cramping on the hands. My only complaint is that the nub to dock the sharpener is a fair bit smaller than the hole itself, leaving a good deal of wiggle in the overall setup. I typically pop a piece of paper towel on top before mounting and that clears it right up.

The base makes using the Lansky sharpener less awkward. It gives you a steady base to rest the sharpener 'jaws' on. I initially wanted to get the c-clamp base, but I opted for this one because it was a few dollars cheaper at the time. With a spring clamp from home depot (like a big clothes pin?) it stays where I put it on the table and works just as good.

Lansky products have been with me for over 30 years, and they are going strong. One may say it is based on rather old design, but all other products that followed copied Lansky, once the patent ran out. Over time, the plastic part of the grind stone crumbled, but Lansky promptly replaced, per their Life Time Guarantee.

What I have discovered, however, is that they have tried to cope with changing economy, and the equipment have gone through changes. I would not call it an improvement. The original Lansky mount in the picture is machined from aluminum, and perhaps steel (I do not know for sure, because I never bought one). The actual mount arrived is molded in a kind of a light metal. I do not like to have items switched: picture shows one thing, then the actual item is another.

One good thing about the new design is that it is sized to fit inside the plastic box that holds knife clamp and other sharpening stones. One bad thing about it is that it is designed to be permenently screwed down on a surface. I planned to clamp the mount on the table and remove it after the sharpening. The the old design would work well, but the new, molded design leaves a space between the board and the metal. I do not think it can handle the clamping force. Therefore I do not use it. I do not like the rounded, "ergonomic" shape of the new design, either.

I discarded the idea of returning the item, but I did not want to go through the hassle of returning: Amazon's administrative chores, wrapping, driving to the PO, and posting. Who has time to waste?

I will just hold with my hands, as I have done in the past 30 plus years.

Works as designed. Steadies the holder while sharpening the blade of any knife. Should really be a part of every kit and not an add-on. I now have two as I found my standard honing kit in my hunting box while cleaning out after the season ended. Definitely recommend this for anyone that uses a Lansky Honing/Sharpening system.

Works perfectly just as advertised. This makes the basic kit a pleasure to use. It even fits into the box with the stones if you take it apart....remove the little screw also.

Very stable even when not screwed down to the work surface. This makes using the Lansky system so much easier. Do yourself a huge favor, and get this mount.

Cumbersome to use. Ended up using the system without it after a few minutes. Not very sturdy and made the sharpener difficult to use. Maybe the C-Clamp model would be better

I have the Lansky sharpening set and always wanted this stand. Finally got one. mounted it on a 2x2 square of 3/4 ply so its a little sharpening bench. One fault with this guy is the stand stud on the top. It may be a smidge too tight so test it with the Lansky blade clamp. If its tight, get a piece of medium grit paper and sand the stud a smidge. Fixes it right up. You may not have the issue but be aware that it might and that its easily corrected.

Well made!!! Metal not plastic. Worth the money. I mounted mine with four screws to a small piece of wood. This way I can clamp it down on different work surfaces.

As mentioned quite a few times before mine was very wobbly and unstable. It really is not meant to just be placed on a table either because it is very lightweight and slides around a lot. I am sure securing the base to a table top with screws would make a big difference since that is really what it is meant to do, but it wouldn't change the fact that the peg that the clamp sits on just seems too small and allowed way too much wiggle room. You would be far better off going to Home Depot and getting a table clamp that secures tightly to the edge of a table or bench and then put the Lansky clamp in there. That is what I ended up doing and it made it far more stable. This mount just felt way too wobbly and makes it difficult to feel like you have any more control than just holding the clamp in your bare hand. I would pass on this and go with a table clamp. Just don't get the C-clamp made by Lansky because it uses the same peg and you will have the exact same problem. With the table clamp I was able to get amuch more precise edge than using this mount and I highly recommend that instead.
