Since 1979, Lansky Sharpeners have been acknowledged as the world leader in sharpening technology. Each Lansky Sharpener is designed to meet exacting performance, reliability and safety standards. A pioneer of fixed angle sharpeners, Lansky has made knife sharpening virtually foolproof, as well as completely ambidextrous. With Lansky Sharpeners you can choose from four different sharpening angles.
30 degree Angle: An outstanding angle for knives that see use as utility knives, like those used to cut cardboard, pallet straps or carpeting.
25 degree Angle: This is the recommended angle for most knives that need a durable, sharp edge. An ideal angle for hunting and outdoor knives.
20 degree Angle: A commonly used angle for higher grade, quality blades. Provides an excellent edge that is perfect for kitchen knives.
17 degree Angle: A severe angle only recommended for razor blades, X-Acto blades or similar tools. Yields an extremely sharp, but delicate edge.

V-Shaped Sharpening Slots:
Insert knife blade into the V-shaped slots at a 90-degree angle to the sharpening blades or stones.
Pull the knife blade straight back towards you while applying light pressure.
Repeat this action until blade is sharp.
Tapered Diamond Rod / Flat Edges:
Always hold the unit with the rod facing down. Place heel of the blade on the diamond rod closest to the unit.
Hold blade at a 23 degree angle to the rod.
While applying light pressure, push the knife away from you towards the end of the rod. Draw knife down so that the tip of the blade comes off the end of the rod. Repeat this action until blade is sharp.
For the other side of the blade, you will need to switch hands holding the sharpener and the knife and repeat steps 1 - 3.
Tapered Diamond Rod / Serrated Edges:
Only sharpen the side of your knife edge with the serrations.
Hold rod at 23 degree angle to the blade and move it back and forth through each serration until sharp.
Always clean your sharpener with a damp cloth after use and towel dry. Do NOT rinse with water
