I have used this sharpener with and without the Lansky guide system. It is a very hard stone and works very well as the final stone (followed by a leather strop with polishing compound) or as a touch up in the field. I keep it in my car and sometimes toss it in my pack for camping or fishing to touch up the edge of my knife if I have a lot of carving and cutting I need to do. I only use it with water, I am not a fan of oils on my sharpening stones.

For use with the Lansky Controlled Angle Sharpening Kits:  

  1. Insert the guide rod into the hone.
  2. Make sure the rod is in line with the sharpening surface.  
  3. Bend the rod slightly, if needed. (See our Kit Instructional Video [minute 1:45] for how to properly assemble the guide rod and hone).  
  4. Set the angle to the same one pre-established on your knife.  
  5. Sharpen away!
