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.

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