The Lansky Sharpening Kits are very mobile, they come in a small hard carry case which hold all the stones the clamp and oil. The Lansky kits are designed for individuals to ensure they have a perfectly sharp cutting edge on their knives to increase efficiency, these Lansky kits are ideal for hunters, boners, fishermen, chefs or even mums and dads in the kitchen at home. The Butchers Buddy sharpening kit is specifically designed for the larger processors or butchers who sharpen multiple knives a day, these units clamp on to the bench and have a quick easy clamp mechanism to hold your knife while sharpening. The Flipover Blade Sharpener is a unique design where the knife is clamped into position and stays in the same position till sharpening is complete, eg: when one side of the blade is sharpened the knife is still left in the same position and simply flipped over ready for the other side to be sharpened, by doing this it ensures the sharpening on each side is even which gives a perfect cutting edge.
