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.

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.
Das Gerät ist leicht zu bedienen, benötigt wenig Platz in der Küche und das Schleifergebnis ist gut.
Top Gerät. Noch nie war Messer schärfen so einfach
Been using the bigger Tormek system for many years now for my workshop tools, also used it to do my kitchen knives was was over the moon when the T1 was announced.. Took a while for it to be available in the UK but it was worth the wait. Like all the Tormek tools its well made, works and looks great on the kitchen worktop and it gives a great edge to all my knives...
Bien vu les pansements dans la boîte ! Ils ont servi des le premier jour. Il faut reprendre l'habitude de couteaux tranchants
Einfach Handhabung und sehr scharfe Messer, super Qualität
Nach vielen vergeblichen Versuchen mit den "günstigen" habe ich Nägel mit dem T1 gemacht. Der schärft wie versprochen und ist auch für einen Doppelten Linkshänder wie mich zu bedienen.
