Spyder Knife Sharpener
This model of Lansky’s popular Multi-Sharpener is ideal for the distinctive serrations on Spyderco® knives. Like the Multi-Sharpener, it will sharpen regular as well as serrated blades, and it has a special groove for sharpening fish hooks and other pointed objects. It features non-slip thumb and finger rests and a keychain.
Spyder Sharpener Instructions:
The small edge of the sharpener matches the narrow serrations on Spyderco® blades. The broader corners match the wider Spyderco® serration. The flat surfaces are for sharpening regular blades, and the groove is for fish hooks and other pointed objects.
For Sharpening Serrations:
Step 1 - Grip the sharpener firmly by the Guide Guard on one end using your dominant hand.
Step 2 - Holding the knife firmly with the other hand (with the edge facing away from you!) bring the corner of the sharpener to the serration.
Step 3 - While maintaining a consistent angle and with even pressure, gently push, while using a rolling motion to sweep the sharpener’s corner from one side of the serration or scallop to the other. A single stroke will remove any burrs on the reverse side of your blade.
For Sharpening a Plain Edge:
Step 1 - Place the thumb on one Guide Guard and the tip of the second or third finger of the same hand on the other guide guard.
Step 2 - Place the blade’s edge against the flat side of the sharpener. While maintaining a consistent angle and with even pressure gently push the entire edge across the sharpener in a single stroke, much like attempting to slice a thin layer off the side.
Step 3 - Stroke 3-5 times and repeat this on the reverse side of the blade.
Step 4 - Continue this process until the blade is sharp.
When the alumina ceramic sharpening rod becomes dark with metal particles from the sharpening process, use the Lansky® EraserBlock® or household cleanser. The alumina ceramic sharpening rod will never wear out.
Be Smart, Be Safe and Stay an Edge Above the Rest!
CAUTION: Knife sharpening is an inherently dangerous activity. Used properly this sharpener cannot hurt you but a carelessly handled blade or pointed object can.
