I have used the Lansky myself, to much time invested to do it right.. Got rid of it and bought the Spyderco system for all my high end knives. My system has the diamond sleeves that slid over the ceramic stones. I have been using it for ohhh maybe 20 years.. I love it man. Quick, easy and the perfect edge every time!

Cheers
Jay

Got a link for the one you have (or modern equivalent )?? I have good Shun knives, which have a different edge angle on them than others. These are still pretty sharp to me (after 10+ years just using a steel) but I'd like them like razors again. Easier to get rid of intruders that way. j/k

Damn bro Shun is about as good as they get!

Mine has the diamond sleeves that I dont see anywhere. But as you can see, this system you cannot change the cut angle.

Don't see any way to actually guide the blade to maintain the correct angle on the edge. Maybe I'm just not seeing it...

I really love my Shun knives. Next best are the Calphalon Katana line of knives. Same steel and such, just different handles and design. Still, I go for the Shun more often.

As I mentioned, I've had one of them for over 10 years and the thing still cuts really well. I should sharpen it, just to get it back to like a razor though.
