Perfect Edge in Three Simple Steps

With the Tormek T-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener you sharpen the entire bevel of your knife creating a new apex. The low RPM and precise angle setting ensures minimal steel removal and eliminates risk of overheating your edge. Professional sharpness at home!

1. Set preferred edge angle

17° is a good angle to start with if you are unsure of what angle to choose. A small angle will cut more easily, while a large angle will give a stronger edge. 

2. Sharpen on both sides

Insert the knife into the guide. Follow the edge profile and apply gentle pressure, as if you were slicing a tomato. 

3. Hone to final finish

Deburr and polish the knife on the honing wheel to achieve a razor-sharp edge. Also for maintaining your knives between sharpenings.

One of my favorite kitchen tools

First, let me proclaim that the Tormket T-1 Kitchen
Knife Sharpener is one of my most loved kitchen appliances! It’s incredibly sturdy, straightforward to use, and *very* safe. I use it weekly to keep my knives (and fingers) performing their best. This handy little machine has earned a permanent home on my countertop!

Every home chef should have one

My Tormek knife sharpener is to cooking, what music is to dancing. As a chef, in the kitchen it’s not the knife that counts but how sharp it
is. The Tormek T-1 has made sharpening my collection of knives a quick and efficient task - resulting in razor sharp blades every-time.
The knock-on effect is that I have found my work easier, safer and more
enjoyable. I heavily recommend all keen home cooks invest in their own Tormek knife sharpener.
