The American made Lansky Folding Diamond Paddles are ideal for every workshop. Renown for their hardness, diamonds are an excellent abrasive for the fast reconditioning and maintenance of all your various tools and knives.
Step 1 - Begin by opening the plastic handles.
Step 2 - To sharpen a knife, hold the sharpener handles firmly in one hand and the knife in the other.
Step 3 - Place the end of the sharpener on a stable surface. Draw the knife edge down the paddle at the proper angle, as if you were attempting to slice a thin layer off the top of the paddle. Repeat this motion 3 – 4 times using light to moderate pressure. Maintain a consistent angle for the best results.
Step 4 - Switch to the other side of the blade's edge and repeat the sharpening process to finish the edge.
Note: Do not apply oil to Lansky Diamond surface: clean diamond hones instead with water and wipe shavings away with a lint-free rag. Diamond hones should be completely dry before next usage.
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.
