if you use that one for sword sharpening you will find
if your swords a bit on the wide side the plastic holder
will score the blade on eack side just above the hamon
so its up to you

Jtdsx, I doubt you find it any cheaper, and if you call loz tomorrow he may still be able to put it in with your sword and get it all in a single p&p, try and google accusharp it's the same thing and there's a few YouTube clips of it in action

Someone mentioned the Accusharp is good.
But will it destroy the blade or score the hamon?

All sharpening tools damage the blade, you have to scrape steel off to form a point, but if you use it correctly you won't damage your etched hamon, I wouldnt use it on Paul Chen swords as they have acid enhanced hamons that are damaged so very easily
The accusharp will likley damage a hamon, wich is why il only use it on the raptor kat

The lansky will do fine, your blade and hamon will be damaged all the time if you're using it

I think the only way would be to get the sword sharpened using traditional Japanese methods your looking at over 1k as some take months to sharpen then polish back, but that strips layers off the blade and an etched hamon wouldn't survive, so basically no? But I may be wrong :dunno: the mini lansky is your best bet in my opinion

I'm sure that Ross gets a few extra 'Nectar' points or 'Air Miles' every time he recommends that bloody awful 'Accusharp' on these boards. :>
