Here is the Ugly Wicked Lansky, or UWL in forum speak. It does work but got to guess the original is a little better, hey pore people have pore ways., as my mom always liked to say. The heel on this knife needs work but I just wanted to show you it did happen.
I never cared for the Lansky in its original state, it just wobbled to much, this one is stable. Notice the can of practice knives in the background. I need a serrated knife file, as well as a good sharpening steel.
Other devices I use now and then.
