IN RESPONSE TO YESTERDAY’S KNIFE-SHARPENER REVIEW, reader Marc Greendorfer emails:

Your link to the review of the Tormek sharpening system reminded me of an item I purchased from Amazon recently.

It’s a lot cheaper than the Tormek, though it really is far from being the industrial strength sharpener that the Tormek is. But the Lansky system is a bargain for what it does. I took all my hunting and kitchen knives and ran them through the Lansky and they are better than new. You never know how dull your knives get until you sharpen them. The kitchen knives, in particular, really benefit from a regular sharpening/honing. And what could be more energy efficient/disaster ready than a knife with a manually operated sharpening system?

Good point!
