Lansky delivers the most versatile 3 Stone Sharpener available, Combining 3 of our best stones: Diamond, Alumina-Oxide, and Ceramic. The result is a stand-alone, high-value sharpening center that will do it all, with better versatility than other similar products and last longer doing it. All sharpening surfaces measure 2" x 6".

-The continuous diamond surface (120 grit) will repair and re-profile extremely dull or damaged blades. This is not to be used every time, only on blades in need of serious repair or re-profiling.

-The long lasting Alumina-Oxide surface (280 grit) is where most your touch-ups will occur, before polishing it off with the ceramic side. This is most comparable to a traditional sharpening stone, producing a working-edge that is adequate for most cutting tasks.

-The Ceramic surface (1000 grit) is used for sharpening and finishing. This is what will turn a micro-serrated edge into a smooth, shaving-sharp, cutting edge. The type of edge you can confidently brag about. 

The sturdy plastic base boasts a wide footprint with low-profile and non-slip rubber feet giving the Lansky Tri-Stone Benchstone greater stability, resulting in greater user satisfaction. 



Step 1- Select the proper stone for your edge.

Coarse Diamond Stone- For re-profiling a completely dull or damaged edge
Medium Alumina Oxide Stone- To maintain an undamaged, slightly dull edge
Fine Ceramic Stone- To hone/polish a finished edge

Step 2- Set the Tri-Stone Benchstone base on a stable, flat surface with the stone you have selected facing up.

Note- Lubrication of any kind is not recommended while sharpening on any of the three stones. DO NOT USE HONING OIL ON THE DIAMOND STONE.

Step 3- Observe the bevel angle on the blade you intend to sharpen. Then, bring the edge to the stone matching your sharpening angle to the bevel angle.

Step 4- Using light pressure, push the edge of the blade across the stone in one motion, much like trying to slice a thin layer off the top of the stone. Maintaining a consistent angle is essential for the best results.

Step 5- Repeat process 3-4 times on one side of the blade then switch to the other side and repeat.

Step 6- Repeat this process until edge is sharp then progress to finer stones and repeat.

Step 7- Clean your stones.

Clean the Diamond stone with a damp rag after each use.
Clean your Alumina Oxide stone with Nathan’s Honing Oil® after each use
Clean the Ceramic stone with the Lansky Eraser Block® after each use.


1. Use a series of stones for the best results. For an undamaged edge start with the Medium Alumina-Oxide stone.

2. Start with your selected stone. Use 3-4 strokes on one side of the blade. Repeat process on the other side of the blade. Repeat this whole process, switching between sides, about 3-4 times. 

3. Then use only 2 strokes per side. Repeat this process 2-3 times. 

4. Then 1 stroke per side. Repeat this process 1-2 times.

5. Move on to a finer stone.

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.
