Lansky’s Quick Fix® pocket knife sharpener combines two great sharpening technologies to give you the fastest blade tune-up anywhere. Just 3 or 4 strokes on the tungsten carbide side and your knife is sharp. Or a few quick strokes on the Crock Stick ceramic rods can be used to touch up a blade. It’s that fast! It’s that easy! The compact Quick Fix sharpener is small enough for your pocket, tackle box, daypack, briefcase or purse. Sharpening angles are pre-set at 22.5º to achieve a 45º inclusive angle. Lansky Sharpeners is a proud sponsor of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. Quick Fix Knife Sharpening Instructions Before starting, place the sharpener on a solid, flat surface. Hold the unit firmly, keeping your fingers away from the knife blade. Hold the knife straight up and down, as though you are going to slice bread. Apply moderate pressure when drawing the knife blade through the slots. Step 1 Draw knife blade through the gray Tungsten Carbide slot 3 – 4 times to sharpen the blade. Step 2 Turn sharpener over and draw the knife blade through the white Crock Stick slot 3 – 4 times to polish the blade. Step 3 Carefully clean the knife edge.
