DIY Lansky Sharpening Shoe

DIY Lansky Sharpening Shoe

When I get tired of holding things, I can make a holder. The Lansky vice fits snugly in this hardwood shoe - the back slides into a thin slot and the front rests on a lip. There's clearance for the knob when it's flipped, a hole for clamping, and a simple wedge fastener.

It was just screwed together for testing, and worked great with a pocket knife. It's heavy enough to stay put during use, and quiet compared to a metal stand. I may add some thin felt on the bottom. The ultimate test will be the larger kitchen knives.

I'll put a finish on this before it gets covered in sharpening oil.
