So I use a lansky a lot for those tedious small blades, I've had it for quite a few years. Recently a piece of my clamp broke so I ordered a new one (free with ebay bucks, but it was actually about $11). I noticed a difference in the stock photo but figured, no big deal, it's been a long time I've had mine so no surprise if it changed a little.
However this new one is way different, and says made in china on the pack! So now I'm wondering if they make them all in china now. I noticed the whole kit comes in a black box on lansky's website, my box is red. The old clamp is of superior quality and much thicker in the back. The only reason my old one chipped is I had it on a blade at a weird angle, and got it too tight
I am looking for schrade cut co and schrade walden cattle knives and GEC 81 stockmans.
