  • Coarse 120 Grit (Black/Charcoal):
    For quickly producing a cutting edge on inwardly curved blades such as a hawkbill or karambit. (Lansky Item # HR120)
  • Medium 280 Grit (Dark Gray/Gold):
    Excellent for keeping a sharp edge on inwardly curved blades such as a hawkbill or karambit. (Lansky Item # HR280)

    For refining an already sharp edge on inwardly curved blades such as a hawkbill or karambit. (Lansky Item # HR600)

Q. Will this work on any curved blade?

A. It will work on almost any curved blade. About the only curve it won't work on would be the very tight curve of a gut hook.

Q. Can you use these freehand or do they require the Lansky Guide Rods?

A. We recommend using the guide rods. However, these stones work unguided in your hand. The grips on the back of the stone make it easier to hold than the average small stone.

Q. Do you have other sharpeners for curved knives?

A. Yes, we recommend sharpeners with a curved edge. We have a number of sharpeners that will sharpen curved edges. Other Curved Knife Sharpeners

Q. Do you have any information on sharpening a curved edge?

A. Yes, an information page on sharpening curved knives.

Thanks John, I am so glad to be working with people who know their products and how to use them. You have a very informative and well laid out website and I learned a lot. It was a rainy Sunday and I watched every video and read through each article. The information you provided was very helpful in teaching technique and helping me decide what to buy. Also your products are so well thought out, that no matter what stone you prefer (oil, water or diamond), there is a nice package available for a beginner. All of the products you put together each had their own advantages and believe me, each one spent some time in the shopping cart until I made my final decision.
