My Lansky set has been sitting in a box in the attic somewhere for about the last 15 years. I just got tired of messing with it and found that I could get at least as good an edge by hand on a Norton stone and a whole lot faster and plenty good with the diamond hone I linked to above.


No doubt, but the average person that does not understand or take the time to know how has ruined more good knives than all of us put together. It is foolproof...................

I leave mine assembled and placed in a shoe box in the hunting supply closet in the hallway. Easy to get to and just clamp knife and hone.

I too do some of mine by hand, but you can't knock the edge you get from a Lansky or similar product.

Carry this in your pack for a quick and easy edge when you need it - http://www.knivesplus.com/eze-lap-sharpener-ez-m.html
Works great, follow up at home with a little leather stropping and you have a razor blade.

I carry a Gerber in my hip pocket 7 days a week. My two best hunting knives are Kershaw's. I carry the sharpener only to get a quick replacement edge in the field, I have a Lansky hone system I use all the time for my great edge jobs.

All I could find for a portable was a small Lansky at Academy Sports. Good enough for me.

I carry a Gerber all the time.
I don't know knives,but it appears to be a softer blade,and is easy to sharpen.
I use small blades to butcher my deer.

But I have this larger curved Mulay from Spain.
has a stag handle.
Found it at a sale,and it's a cool knife.
I think it might be a well made knife,but I don't know anything about them.
I found a pic of it on the web,but no price.
