Arthur LeVine Passes Away


We received some bad news yesterday–Arthur LeVine, founder of Lansky Sharpeners, passed away from a heart attack. Arthur was perhaps best known for his angle-guide sharpeners but Lansky also carried a wide array of sharpeners for sportsmen, the kitchen and much more. He was also a long-time friend of BLADE and the BLADE Show. As far as we can gather, he was around 60 years old.

We don’t know know what the future holds for the company now but will keep you posted of further developments.
