Just realized, Spyderco Tri-Angle Sharpmaker is very close to Spyder Sharpener Triangle.
Side by side, the triangles ARE identical, except in length. They have the same color and seem to me to cut the same.
Were testing of grit and friability to show no difference, I would think it fair to suspect same-sourcing, or sophisticated "reverse-engineering" by Lansky or a supplier Spyderco doesn't use.
Whatever, accompanying what you captured is the following copy: "This model of Lansky’s popular Multi-Sharpener is ideal for the distinctive serrations on Spyderco® knives."
The use of the registration mark seems a play to suggest respect for (and thus association with?) Spyderco. Deceptive, no?
I should add in light of other comments that this deception disappoints me. Before making the Sharpmaker my go-to sharpener five years ago I used to good effect a Lansky system my father gave me in the late 80s.
