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.

Instruction

Getting Started information

TRY THIS AT HOME

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! 

  • 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 A FINAL FINISH

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

Well designed and robust machine

I really like it and I am glad that I bought it. It feels really well made and is simple to use.

The only reason I have not given five stars is because the sharpness I have been able to achieve is good, but a bit less impressive than I hoped. I don’t know whether that is failings in my technique, or the quality of my knives, or because I had unrealistic expectations.

Anyway, if you are tempted I recommend that you buy it. Despite my slight reservation, it makes food preparation much easier and more enjoyable.

Thank you very much for your review. I have sent you an email with some tips that might help you achieve better results.
