Which of these do you think, is the best? Do you think this is a good system, or money spent better else ware?

I was thinking the same, the thing that draws me to the Lansky is multiple angles.
The Spyderco looks like it has one, or I don't have it right?

Both work I use the spydie way more often!

I Use spydie flat ceramic stones the most, DMT diamond butterfly style stones second most!

I am a big fan of any of the Lansky croc sticks.

I have one with just a handle that I use the heck out of.
You need to be able to manage the angle with just your eye, but it isn't that hard to do.
It also sharpens serrated blades if it can fit the scallops.

I have a couple of their wood turn boxes as well, which are shorter rods than the one you show. They work, just a bit slower.

I haven't tried the one you listed, but it looks great!

So when you use the Spyderco Sharpener, you basically reshape the blade to what ever is determined by the product? Or you compensate, buy not going straight up or down? You hold at a slight angle?

Two preset angles are designed into the product! You can cheat easy enough, but one tool never has and never will work for all situations!

I have a sharpmaker, and it collects dust for the most part anymore since I found the KME system. It’s not bad at all, as long as your knives like the two preset angles.

I use a $20 water stone, 1000 and 6000 grit. Crazy sharp. Got a steel for daily use, been using that for years. And a small stone and collapsible pocket steel in the truck.
