Quality and performance

Buying a Tormek is a safe investment in quality and performance. You are assured that all future developments will fit your machine.


Exact Replication

The key word when sharpening the Tormek way is repeatability. Even complicated shapes can easily be re-sharpened.


Fast sharpening

Once the shape is created, you remove only a fraction of the steel when re-sharpening, which makes it a quick job.


Cleanest edges

The water cooled Grindstone creates a very nice edge. Finish sharpening by honing away the burr and polish the bevel on the leather honing wheel.

Chisel at work

Longer tool life

You have full control and remove no more steel than necessary. Your tools will last longer.

Water trough

Safe and quiet

No risk of overheating or sparks being produced. Worn steel particles are deposited into the water trough keeping the air clear of grinding dust.


Edge Tools

With the wide range of Tormek patented jigs, you can sharpen practically all types of edge tools.
