Lansky's Soft Grip Knife Clamp
This Lansky Knife Clamp features soft grips for non-marring blade holding and dual thumbscrews for ease of use. This is the clamp that Lansky recommends for use with blades that are highly polished or coated. The dual thumbscrews provide tool free operation.
Lansky also offers a Multi Angle Knife Clamp that is recommended for blades that are narrower than 1/2".
Loosen the front thumbscrew screw 2-3 turns. Tighten the back red thumbscrew until it is approximately one full turn from being fully tightened. Loosen the front thumbscrew 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 thumbscrew on the clamp.
