Why is the Lansky wonderful?
The Lansky is amazing for three reasons.
It saves you time
It’s a truism that a sharp knife works faster than a dull knife. I don’t need to prove this. It’s a vanilla fact.
How much time do you waste on cutting with a sub-par cutting edge?
Run a test using a blunt knife and a sharpened knife. Cut various items with both and note the time difference. You’d be surprised at how much time a dull blade costs you.
It saves you energy
My wife’s the chef in our home. She’s good at cooking. Her food’s my favourite.
We’re meat and veggie eaters. We eat plenty of pumpkin. They’re difficult to cut. My wife often calls me into the kitchen for cutting duty. It’s an exhausting task for her, even with a sharp knife. Throw in a dull blade and it becomes a drag. A sharp blade makes the task easier.
It takes a beating
I didn’t expect the honing stones to last long. As mentioned earlier, I didn’t use the Lansky, I abused it. I read the manual, snorted at their directions and did my own thing.
The Lansky took it.
After more than ten hours of assault, the honing stones are fine. They’re like Rocky Balboa. A few scratches here and there, but ready for another round.
