The Lansky system works well, but it can be quite tedious since the stones are small. I would recommend getting their coarse diamond stone too. It will help you get a burr on each side of the blade a little faster.

I for one enjoy using the Lansky System. Very simple to set-up and the angle of the stone to blade is always constant. A big plus in maintaining a properly sharp edge. Also reduces the chances of "marking" the knife blade in the non-working area.

Not sure what color stones are in the 3-stone system, but in the 5-stone end up using the green, blue, red the most. They wear out quite rapidly, I'm going to buy stock in the company that makes the stones!

First Lansky kit I had was the basic three stone. Course (Red), Medium (Green), and Fine (Blue). I bought it in the service and carried everywhere with me. During FTXs I'd pull it out and sharpen knives for people just to pass the time.

I've got a five stone kit now. I also purchased the "sapphire" stone as well. Lanksy does wonders for me in putting and maintaining an edge on a blade.

The one negative thing about the Lansky is the screw/guide rod connection. If you don't tighten it enough the rod will work loose. Over tighten and the plastic prematurely wears and will eventually break.

i really like my 5 stone set and Lansky is an AWESOME company to deal with, if you have a problem or need something.

i do NOT like the system, at all, for sharpening anything over a 4-5" blade.

if you're sharpening mid sized folder, you'll probably be very happy with it. the black stone (in the 5 stone kit) makes creating a new edge fairly easy.
