Knife Sharpening Machines 2
The previous post got a bit lengthy so this will the final post on machines.
One player in this industry is very well known for quality, Tormek.
Their wet sharpeners are known the world over. They can sharpen and hone just about any tool known to man….chisels, knives, scissors, axes….you name it.
A few years ago they came out with two non-wet sharpeners specifically for knives only, the T1 and T2 pro. The 1 is a 6” 600 grit diamond wheel while the 2 is just under 8”. Both of the units have guides that can accommodate knives as wide as 2 3/8” .
You insert the knife into one side of the guide to sharpen the first edge, then insert the knife into the other side of the guide to sharpen the other.
Both machines have a honing wheel to finish the edge.
They carry a warranty of five years, with an additional 3 years when registered. That’s the longest warranty of any machine I know of!
I use the T2 frequently because I keep it in my kitchen…it looks cool….and a machine near where your knives are will get used the most.
