Sharpened my hatchet very well!

Very nice sharpener. Rough side and soft side. I used it to sharpen my dull and rusted hatchet and it created a very nice sharp edge. I didn’t use the Lanskys oil like they recommended and it still came out fine so that’s not absolutely necessary.
A good stone that does a good job

This is a pretty good stone. I like the dual grits because let’s face it, not everything we sharpen needs the same kind of edge or starts from the same degree of dullness. You can use it dry, with honing oil or with water. Over many years I have found that water works best with a stone this coarse, (actually, my father taught me that and I just simply verified what he told me over the years). Using it dry will cause premature wear and your stone will not last as long as it could. So choose whether you can work best with honing oil or water. Even though this stone has what it calls a medium grit, it’s still not nearly as smooth and hard as an Arkansas stone or something of that nature that normally requires oil. If you use oil on this stone, it will clog the pores and eventually have an affect on how well it does its job. Water on the other hand does just as well or better and does not clog. It washes out and the stone can stay clean for the next time you need it. As far as being messy I have not found that to be a problem. A small amount of oil or water is all you need anyway, and you can always add more when you need it. Just enough to cover the surface of the stone is all that is necessary and when it dries up or soaks in, just add some more. It’s not that complicated. Clean it after each use to keep the surface fresh and get rid of metal particles that will collect.
If you need hair splitting sharpness…

We split all of our wood by axes, and we only use wood for heat. So needless to say, we split a lot of wood. Having used several other sharpeners, we like this one, with the use of honing oil. James, who sharpens the axes, is most pleased with this stone. I love it as well. There is hardly anything better in life, than a nice sharp axe. We use it on every axe, and have some good axes, including our Gransfors Bruks which costs a small fortune for an axe. We also have an older axe head that we made a handle form, a “Swift Cutter” made in the 40s which used very good metal back then; then there is the Fiskar’s which takes an edge very nicely, and will split anything. There is no axe here that is not sharp enough to split a hair, thanks to this sharpener.
Well worth it, just remember it’s not ALL you need.

Just starting out with this stone, not using water or oil just dry. It seems to repair and hone an axe decently well, with practice. Recommend using a vise to secure the axe/tool and bringing the puck to the blade carefully, with those classic concentric circles. Use bright light to see the dust on the stone, that’s a good way to make sure you’re actually grinding the edge.

I received my Lansky Puck today in the mail, and as I was bored, decided to go ahead and give it a try. I grabbed a hatchet that I recently purchased from lowes (kobalt 1.5 lb). I had previously put a decent edge on it with a file. But after using it recently, to cut saplings and various vines on my property, the edge looked fairly rough as it may have hit the dirt several times while using it. Well, after using the puck on it (starting with 150 grit side for 10-15 minutes, and moving the the finer side) for a total of 40 minutes, the edge is very sharp. I’ve read reviews stating that this puck will not get your bit to razor sharp, but mine is now definitely “shaving” sharp, and has a very “sticky” edge. I’m very happy with it thus far, and as long as you’re patient, you will be able to produce a fine edge. Lastly, I didn’t use oil, only water, spit specifically :).

I’ve used puck style stones before but have never owned one myself. I bought 3 of these because I have a hard time putting an edge on my machete’s and axe’s and my longer bush knives. The trip-stone I use for all my knives just is not convenient for that type of work on those items. You do have to use honing oil or water with this stone or it’s going to be to dry, and you’ll just end up wearing the stone down. If you’ve never used one of these, it’s best to start by watching video’s online to get the idea of how it works, much different than flat stone with a holder. I like Lanky products, and would recommend them to you as well.

Good old faithful lansky stone. One of the most durable (the shape is designed to not give you any super square edges to chip off, it’s a DURABLE stone) and effective pieces of field equipment out there.
Great product. Get two.

I relly like this puck more than I thought I would. It is the best way to sharpen Machetes, axes, hatchets, shovels, etc. It is coarse on one side and medium on the other. I used to sharpen my Cold Steel Special Forces shovel to hair shaving sharp. I have also used it on my gardening tools to get them better than when I bought them. Makes trimming the shrubs and trees and roses much easier and faster.
The thing you didn’t realize you desperately needed

This thing is AMAZING. At my job there are several knives that don’t go to the sharpener every week, and a lot of my employees just never learned how to be good to a knife. They destroy the edges, no matter what I do.
Just like Grandpa used to do it

I grew up watching my grandpa spit on his sharpening stone, and sharpen until he was splitting hairs. Now you can sharpen your knives in a minute or two, but I still prefer to do it the old fashioned way. Let’s face it you aren’t going to have power in the woods, and if you don’t know how to use a sharpening stone, you are going to make every task you use your knife for more difficult. The fancy sharpening tools will cost you $100 plus, this stone will cost you $6. I carry this stone, and a leather belt anytime I am in the woods. I would recommend carrying an 1000 grit stone as well, but that’s just my preference.
