Pros: Effectiveness, Ease of Use, None
The best stone with an average holder
I have been using Lansky products for the last 15 years. I love the edge you can get if you follow the directions. I use it on every type of blade, even axes and lawnmower blades (takes a vise for those) and the stones are top notch. But, Lansky could do a lot to improve the plastic stone holder. The reason I am buying AGAIN is that once again the plastic holder broke. This happens when you tighten the thumb screw to put the alignment steel on the stone. It is the only fault that I can find.
