Since 1973, Tormek has been dedicated to developing the best sharpening solutions for different types of edge tools. Providing innovative and user-friendly products of the highest quality is, and has remained, fundamental to us. Regardless if you are a professional craftsman, cook or do-it-yourselfer, a Tormek helps you to keep your tools sharp, which in turn increases the quality of your work.
The common denominator amongst our users is commitment to their work, combined with the understanding that sharp tools are the key to their desired result. Many new Tormek users are surprised to see the difference they get in their results when using an edge sharpened and honed on a Tormek. Others appreciate the amount of time they save to get their desired sharpness, thanks to the motor doing the job, which is also gentle on the wrists and shoulders.
We currently offer three different machine models, all of them carefully designed and adapted to their respective audience and type of use. Common to all our machines is that they are equipped with a powerful industrial motor and, in every aspect, built based on our demands for high quality and functionality.
The Tormek way of sharpening is both gentle and highly effective in keeping the edge to an optimal shape. Also, our ambition is to make user-friendly machines from which you get a result that inspires and increases confidence. Imagine being able to sharpen an edge whenever needed. How would that benefit your work?
Tormek machine models
For the all-around user
The Tormek models T-4 and T-8 prove that simplicity and precision can be perfectly integrated in a powerful, versatile system. These models are the foundation of the Tormek Water Cooled Sharpening System and are compatible with our range of jigs and accessories. The larger model, Tormek T-8, has a 250 mm (10”) grindstone while the compact Tormek T-4 has a 200 mm (8”) grindstone. The more powerful motor on the T-8 will enable you to remove steel and reshape edges more quickly than the T-4. Both models come with The Tormek Original Grindstone, which is especially developed to offer the best combination of effective grinding, smooth surface finish and a long stone life.
These versatile machines are the ultimate for sharpening a variety of tools, such as knives, scissors, chisels, planer blades, drills bits, gouges and woodturning tools. The grindstone rotates slowly throughout the sharpening, which makes the machine safe to use and eliminates the risk of overheating the steel.
Knife sharpening for the professional kitchen
Tormek T-2 is only intended for knife sharpening. The machine is especially optimised to meet the chef’s demand for sharpness and user friendliness. It comes with a 200 mm (8”) diamond wheel, which, with a patented guidance system, gives a top result quickly and easily. The Tormek T-2 is not compatible with Tormek’s other selection of jigs and accessories.
