The deluxe version of Lansky’s super fast tungsten carbide sharpener features a roomy, overmolded rubber non-slip grip for maximum comfort and control, safety thumb rest and a lanyard hole for easy attachment to a belt or backpack.
Great sharpener that performs as advertised. The instructions specifically say only light pressure is needed and that is very true. I have only used this on older knives used for utility purposes. Some of these knives were very beat up. It was very easy to remove a lot of metal from these knives so cleaning them up and starting with a fresh edge was not difficult. After removing the burrs, re-sharpening is effortless. So the bottom line is, great sharpener but use care to not whittle your knife away!

Quick Edge Sharpening Instructions
Step 1 - Grip the sharpener with your fingers inside the finger guard and your thumb resting against the thumb guard as shown.
Step 2 - Place knife on a flat, solid surface cutting edge up. Let about 1/2” of the blade extend beyond the edge of the surface. Hold the knife steady with one hand as you begin to sharpen with the other.
Step 3 - Place the “V” in the head of the Quick Edge Sharpener over the blade of your knife where it joins the handle. Holding the sharpener at roughly 90º to the blade (too great an angle as shown in 3a will result in poor sharpening performance), draw the sharpener toward the tip of the knife. The tungsten carbide sharpener will gradually remove metal from the blade, making it sharp. Repeat 3 to 4 times applying no more than light pressure to produce a razor-sharp edge.
Step 4 - Clean knife blade thoroughly.
Note: The tungsten carbide sharpening inserts are reversible and replaceable.
