Lansky Tactical BladeMedic Sharpener -
First aid for your blade: the first responder for field repairs on all types of knife blades. It’s like having an entire knife sharpening system right in your pocket - able to tackle regular or serrated blades, gut hooks, hunting, fishing, - just about any knife using one or all of the following elements:
Just three or four strokes will restore your blade.
Ceramic Sharpening Rods- 1,000 grit
Polish to a finished edge in three or four strokes.
Serrated Knife Sharpener- 800 grit
Designed to get inside even the smallest serrations.
Diamond Tapered Rod- 600 grit
For fast reconditioning and maintenance of both straight and serrated blades. Excellent for Gut Hooks.
Sharpening angles are pre-set at 22.5º to achieve a 45º inclusive angle.
Dimensions: 3.9" x 1.25"
To set an edge for an extremely dull blade, or to sharpen the blade in seconds if the need arises. Just three or four strokes using moderate pressure will restore your blade. Note: Tungsten Carbide is extremely aggressive, and should only be used for super quick sharpening as the need arises. For general edge maintenance, use the Serrated Ceramic element (3).
2. Ceramic Sharpening Rods
Polish and finish an edge in three or four strokes. Always use the Ceramic Rods as the finishing step to using the Carbide element. The Ultra-Fine Ceramic Rods can be used on their own to provide a “touch-up” sharpening to relatively sharp blades. The Ultra-Fine Ceramic Rods are not very aggressive and can be used on your blade often.
3. Serrated Knife Sharpener
Designed to get inside small and large serrations. Always move the blade away from your hand. For Larger serrations, use a sweeping motion with the sharpener to cover the entire surface of the serration.
The Ceramic element can also be used on it’s own in a benchstone type fashion, or like a butcher’s steel. It is harder than steel and should be used often as the primary sharpening element of your BladeMedic®. Eventually metal shavings will accumulate as dark streaks on the ceramic and will slow effectiveness. Clean with a Lansky EraserBlock.
4. Diamond Tapered Rod
For very fast reconditioning and maintenance of both straight and serrated blades. Excellent for gut hooks. The Tapered shape of the Diamond Rod allows for greater versatility enabling the user to quickly sharpen small and large serrations, or to use like a butcher’s steel on straight blades. It is recommended that the Diamond Rod be used sparingly. Its recommended use is for when sharpening speed is crucial, or for hard to sharpen items such as gut hooks. (The use of lubrication/honing oil is not recommended with our diamond sharpening products.)
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.
