The first real knife sharpener for the home chef. Unlike a simpler sharpener, hand lapper or honing steel, it sharpens the entire bevel of the knife, not just the outer edge. With the Tormek T-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener, you’ll never have to send your knives out for sharpening – you can easily get them to professional sharpness yourself in a matter of minutes. At home in your own kitchen.

Selected Features

  • Precise setting of the sharpening angle with the patented guide.
  • Fine-grained diamond grinding wheel for professional results. 
  • Composite honing wheel with integrated polishing agent for razor sharpness.
  • Minimal material removal – you don't grind away more steel than necessary.
  • Quiet running – only 45 dB
  • Powder-coated housing fully cast in zinc, with a sturdy oak handle.
  • 8-year warranty – 5 years + 3 years extra with online registration (for household use only).


Home Chefs Deserve Professional Sharpness Too

Tormek has been developing sharpening machines for professional kitchens for many years. The highly regarded Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener sharpening machine is used by the Swedish Culinary Team and several Michelin star restaurants. Using this experience, Tormek has now developed the first real knife sharpener for the home chef.

The T-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener has a sleek, subtly industrial design that gives it a natural place in the modern kitchen. Because whether you're cooking in a restaurant or at home in your own kitchen, the chef's most important tool is not a knife, but a real knife sharpener.

Sharpen your kitchen knives

With its innovative design and the best materials, the Tormek T-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener can sharpen most types of kitchen knives. The patented guide can handle knives with blades 12–60 millimeters (0.5–2.4 inches) high and up to 5 millimeters (0.2 inches) thick, with unlimited length. The fine-grained diamond grinding wheel sharpens all types of steel to professional sharpness and can also sharpen ceramic knives.

Quality and Care

The Tormek T-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener is designed for those who care about quality and want to take care of their equipment. The machine is built to last and comes with an eight-year warranty, but will likely keep you sharp for much longer than that. With minimal steel wear, the life of your knives will be extended, and it will always be a pleasure to use freshly sharpened, razor-sharp knives in the kitchen. That's why a word of warning is in order: there's a good chance this will become your new favourite gadget.

Getting Started information


The fine-grained diamond wheel is optimized for razor-like sharpness, so we have just one small warning: There is a major risk this will become your new favorite gadget! 


    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. 


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


    Remove the burr and polish the knife on the honing wheel to achieve a razor-sharp edge.

Sharp as a shark

#tormekt1 När jag slipat mina knivar tog jag även mina grannars oxå att träna på. Dom blev nöjda, så nu är jag deras skarpaste granne

Boyd Davies
Absolutely Fantastic Service and Product...

Ordered on website delivered next day in UK.
First go on machine, small paring knife (Wusthof) with small nick in blade, knife was in a quite poor state, never been properly sharpened. I would say it took me approximately 10 minutes going slowly. Once finished, cutting paper test passed with flying colours, even shaves hair on back of hand.
I must admit I was a little sceptical and of course the machine is not cheap. I am more than happy I had been looking at this for months. Then the carbon black came out and I just had to go for it. It is on my worktop, does not take up much room at all, I was very surprised at the size, smaller than I expected, but solidly built and sturdy. Thank you all at Tormek

Per Berglund
Great piece of equipment

It took about about 10 minutes to figure out how to sharpen the first knife I tried, but after that it is soo easy to get it right. Heavy damaged edges will take some time to grind down to a good end result.
