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.

Questions and Answers

What is the difference between shaping and sharpening?

With Tormek you sharpen the whole bevel, compared to a bench stone or a sharpening steel which only sharpens the very tip of the edge. It is possible to touch up the edge a few times with a sharpening steel between the sharpenings, but the edge angle increases each time and eventually you need to sharpen the whole ground face. With the Tormek T-2, you always grind the whole bevel, but with minimal steel removal.

 

Which edge angle should I have?

Generally, a small cutting edge cuts better while a larger edge angle is stronger and lasts longer. For example, a knife used for meat should have a larger edge angle than a thinner filet or vegetable knife. The steel’s properties also influence what is appropriate. A high quality blade generally stays sharp longer at a narrower edge angle than a blade of lower quality.

Do I need sharpening experience to use the T-2?

No, it is built so everyone can learn to sharpen quickly.

How long does it take?

Assuming you sharpen the knife to the previous edge angle (recommended) the work is done in a couple of minutes, including honing and polishing on the honing wheel.

Why does a Tormek sharpened knife last longer?

Thanks to the high accuracy, no unnecessary steel is removed, and your knives will last longer.

Is there a risk that the steel gets heated and damaged?

Often you do not know that the steel has become overheated during sharpening, but it results in the knife becoming dull more rapidly. Compared to conventional sharpening machines, which often use high-speed abrasive belts that generate more heat, the Tormek T-2 sharpens with a slow running diamond wheel which is gentle on the steel.
