This pocket-size Lansky Dual Grit, Multi-Purpose Sharpener is ideal for sharpening lawnmower blades, machetes, hatchets, axe blades, shovels and spades plus a variety of other cutting and chopping tools. The Puck’s easy-to-grip contoured shape, provides for safe, simple tool sharpening. Dual-Grit design provides a coarse side for quick cutting and shaping, and a medium side for final sharpening and finishing of your edge.
Coarse Grit: 120
Medium Grit: 280
Step 1 - Firmly grip the tool to be sharpened or lock in vise to prevent slipping. If desired, apply a few drops of Lansky’s Nathan’s Natural Honing Oil to the grit on the side of The Puck® which will be used to sharpen.
Step 2 - Grasp The Puck® firmly with thumb and fingers, supporting it by the palm of the strong hand. Move The Puck® in a circular motion, overlapping the circles as you move along the entire cutting edge to be sharpened. For the best results maintain a consistent angle while sharpening.
Step 3 - Work one whole side of the tool’s edge before repeating the sharpening procedure on the other edge.
1. For badly worn, nicked or very dull edges, use the coarse grit side of The Puck® first. To apply a finer edge, repeat the process with the medium grit side of The Puck®
2. If tools to be sharpened merely need a touch-up or dressed edge, skip the step with the coarse grit and use only the medium grit side.
After extended use, metal shavings will build up on the Puck and be visible as dark grey masses that will start to make the Puck feel "smoother". To remove the metal build-up, apply a few drops of honing oil on to the affected area and gently spread with your finger. After about a minute, the oil will have lifted the metal shavings to the surface and they can be wiped off with a lint-free cloth. For larger amounts of build-up, multiple applications of oil and wiping may be necessary.
Be Smart, Be Safe and Stay an Edge Above the Rest!
CAUTION: Knife sharpening is an inherently dangerous activity. Used properly this sharpener cannot hurt you but a carelessly handled blade or pointed object can.
