Lansky's Original Design Knife Clamp
This is the original design of the Lansky Knife Clamp. Due to popular demand, this now the standard clamp included in Lansky sharpening kits. Some Lansky users prefer this design as it is capable of holding blades 1/2" wide and under. A screw driver is required for the forward screw.
Lansky also offers a Soft Grip Knife Clamp that is recommended for blades that are highly polished or coated.
Loosen the front screw screw 2-3 turns. Tighten the back red thumb screw until it is approximately one full turn from being fully tightened. Loosen the front screw of the knife clamp again to accommodate thickness of blade. Attach the clamp to the spine of the knife blade at the center of the blade. Approximately ½ inch of the blade should extend from the end of the clamp. Tighten the front screw again to hold the knife securely. Lock the blade in place by hand tightening the back red thumb screw on the clamp.
