Two-stage Crock Stick sharpener with two sets of 5" ceramic rods - medium grit and fine grit; hardwood base w/internal rod storage

Amazon.com

Lansky 4-rod Ceramic Turn Box Sharpener

The Lansky 4-rod Ceramic Turn Box Sharpener is a very stable and compact knife sharpening system, perfect for use in the kitchen. The two-stage system includes four 5-inch alumina ceramic rods--two of medium grit and two of fine grit--to suit different types of blades. The system features a hardwood turn box wood block base that also stores the rods when they are not in use. The wood block offers two preset knife angles of 20 and 25 degrees that lend themselves well to maintaining kitchen knives and the ultra-sharp edges required of filet knives. With regular use, the turn box system is simple to use--it only takes a few swipes to maintain an edge and keep your knives in good working order. This compact system is easy to store in a drawer and is light enough to use outdoors.

Key Features:
  • Hardwood turnbox with internal rod storage in the base
  • Four 5-inch long alumina ceramic rods (2 medium grit and 2 fine grit)
  • 25 degree sharpening angle suitable for kitchen knives--provides a sharp, durable edge.
  • 20 degree sharpening for a very sharp edge--suitable for filet knives or cutting tomatoes.
  • One year warranty

The sharpener:

The sharpener contains four ceramic rods, a dark gray coarse pair and a white fine pair, which are stored conveniently in the wooden body (which is a nondescript, varnished hardwood of the type found in cheap folding furniture, for example.) In use, these rods would be inserted into two pairs of holes drilled into the wooden case. The holes serve to hold the rods at a particular angle, letting you create properly shaped, repeatable edges on your knives.

How to use it:

If you are starting with a dull blade, you start with the dark rods. You put them in the pair of holes that are spaced farther apart (as in the product photo.) Those holes are drilled at 20 degrees from vertical, which will create an edge that is very close to the proper shape, and make further sharpening go faster (I will explain that below.)

You hold the wooden body with a free hand down on a countertop or tabletop, then grip your knife in your other hand, edge down and pointing forward, and draw the knife edge against one of the rods downwards and backwards. You have to be careful to keep your other hand out of the path of the knife. You do a few strokes on one side, then switch to the other.

Since most knives have curved edges, you should ideally draw the handle up as you draw it back in a rocker motion, to keep the edge at a constant angle to the rods. With an 8" chef's knife, it wouldn't matter much, but with smaller knives with a deeper curve, it might be important, especially if you want the knife to be equally sharp from tip to heel.

My husband has used these for years and years...his first set lasted 20 years before our son dropped it on the floor and the sticks broke. The day they broke he asked me to buy him a new set immediately. The original version of this (the Deluxe 4 stick one) is his favorite sharpener, and he uses it frequently to sharpen blades for all purposes including butchering where you need a good edge. The box on this version is better storage for the sticks, but the sticks and the board are only about 1/2 the length of those on the old one, and he doesn't like this as well. There is a much better chance of cutting yourself trying to hold the board down, and the shorter sticks cause it to take longer to sharpen. Also, the sticks don't fit as well...the angle is wrong...compared to the old one. The sticks do not fit into the longer board, so there is a good chance that replacement sticks would not fit into the old board either (the one we have is about 20 years old). Still a good little sharpener for trips, but we ended up ordering the larger version for most purposes.

Today I received my Lansky 4-rod sharpener and was in moments using it on all my dull and worn Edc (every day carry knife).
Right out of the packaging I didn't see any Directions But it was very simple to understand. The kit came with 2 medium (brown) rods and two fine (white) ceramic rods. I was very impressed at how fast and easy this thing worked. With only a few passes on the medium rods and about 20 passes on the fine rods my spyderco Tenacious looked as if it had its factory edge. Over all it toke about a minute and a half of work and I was slicing paper and hairs like no other.

Now Ive read a couple of reviews about the rods wobbling and I worried about this myself. I don't know if Lansky has fixed the problem or I got lucky and got a nice one but the wiggling problem was non existent, Both the holes were well drilled and the rods where a tight stable fit.

If you are looking to find a cheap sharpener that works wonders this is the thing for you. Ive spent many frustrating nights trying to get my knives as sharp as this on my whetstones. Its safe to say you defiantly wont be disappointed.

For 12 bucks, there is NO better sharpener. I'm not a complete n00b when it comes to knife sharpening, but I'm pretty close! After reading all 465765523462341243 reviews on Amazon I decided to finally "Add to cart" and order this bad boy. After what seemed like forever, the sharpener arrived. Yes it's true that the wooden box is "made in China" but I found the quality to be great...especially for TWELVE BUCKS! It's wood, after all, and not plastic. The 2 ceramic sticks seem to be very durable and I am confident that they will last for many, many, MANY sharpening sessions. As you've read, it comes with two medium grit rods and two fine grit rods. The rods are ceramic. I can't fault the length of the crock sticks because I knew how long they were when I ordered them.

Ok on to the first sharpening sessions. I decided to start on a 7 year old, cheap China pairing knife that my wife and I have had since we've been married. As you can imagine, this knife was really dull because it has never been sharpened. The knife is about 4 inches. I sharpened this knife at the 25 degree angle, as per the instructions. Starting with the medium grit rods, I held the knife perpendicular to the box. I did it a little different than the directions in that I stayed on one side and went down to the tip and then back up to the top. I did this a total of 20 times, up and down, on both sides. Then I switched over to the fine grit ceramic rods and did the same thing for 20 times. All in all, it took about 15 minutes. After I finished, the 7 year old cheapo was shaving my arm hair and slicing through paper with ease! I didn't strop the blade but this would've made the knife that much more sharper. Next, I moved to my Ka-bar Warthog folder.
