Professional Kitchen Knife Sharpening

Give your kitchen an edge – with sharp knives

Knives are found in every kitchen and are used in the creation of nearly every dish. Sharp knives are safer and more effective - a knife that tracks exactly where it is supposed to reduces waste and improves efficiency. By having on-demand sharpening on site, you’ll save time, money and your knives. But maybe most importantly, sharp knives are a lot more fun to work with.

Sharp knives in 60 seconds

Tormek T-2 is a kitchen knife sharpener that allows you to get a professionally sharpened knife in 60 seconds. With 45 years of experience in sharpening and with the help of chefs from the Swedish Culinary Team, the T-2 was specially designed to meet the professional’s demand for sharpness and user friendliness.

Quick and easy with no set up time

When working in a commercial kitchen, time is one of your most valuable assets. Hand sharpening on whetstones is a time-honored tradition trained chefs use to keep their knives functionally sharp. The problem is that it is time consuming and difficult to achieve precise and repeatable results.  With the Tormek T-2 you will get a professionally sharpened knife in a minute. You set and lock your desired edge angle and have consistent sharpening every time.

How long does it take?

Assuming you sharpen the knife to the previous edge angle (which is recommended), each knife is finished in less than a minute, including honing and polishing on the honing wheel. This means that you can professionally sharpen all your knives with a Tormek in just a few minutes, instead of hours on a whetstone, or days if you send the knives out for sharpening.

Your knives will never leave the kitchen

Compared to a conventional sharpening service, which can take days, your knives will never leave the kitchen when having a Tormek knife sharpener on site. Plus, you will save money in the long run.  A restaurant that uses a sharpening service for 10 knives will recoup the cost of a Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen in less than a year.

Safe knife sharpening – gentle on your knives

A sharp knife is a safer knife. It cuts cleaner, more precisely and has less chance of slippage since it requires less pressure. When sharpening a knife on the Tormek T-2, the knife guide maintains a constant angle against the grinding wheel to yield a consistent sharp edge on both sides of the knife. Furthermore, you are in control and have full support while sharpening which reduces the risk of injury.

The Tormek T-2 is gentle on your knives. “Sharpen, don’t shorten.”  Thanks to the slow turning diamond wheel and the high accuracy, the machine does not remove any more steel than necessary, making knives last longer. Compared to conventional sharpening machines that use high-speed abrasive belts and generate more heat, the T-2’s fine-grained diamond wheel and slow rotation prevent edges from overheating and losing hardness.

A sustainable way to keep your knives sharp

  • Having sharp knives is not only satisfying to work with, it also reduces food waste and leaves less scrap on the cutting board. With sharp knives you can save up to 10% of the food product. 
  • Made of high-quality materials, the Tormek T-2 is extremely durable. Estimated service life for normal use is about 20-25 years. 
  • The machine is maintenance free and consumes very little energy, only 120 W (an industrial coffee maker is 2400 W).

Working with the best culinary team in the world

We love working closely with our customers. When we developed the Tormek T-2, our ambition was to offer chefs a solution to achieve sharp edges whenever needed.  Working with The Swedish Culinary Team during the development process, we identified the important key design factors of a professional kitchen knife sharpener.  We still work closely with the Swedish Culinary Team (winner of Culinary World Cup 2018) and make sure that Team Manager Fredrik Andersson and his team always have sharp knives to work with in the kitchen, especially before big competitions like the Culinary World Cup and the Culinary Olympics.

Fun fact
In the Culinary Olympics and the Culinary World Cup, teams get point deductions if their knives are not sharp. Therefore, the Swedish Culinary Team starts every day making their knives razor-sharp on the Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen to be able to compete at the world’s highest level of cooking.
