Knife Sharpening for the Commercial Kitchen

Achieve a more efficient kitchen with sharp knives

Sharp Knives à la minute

Knives are found in every kitchen and are used in the creation of nearly every dish. Sharp knives are safer and more effective - a knife that tracks exactly where it is supposed to reduces waste and improves efficiency. By having on-demand sharpening on site, you’ll save time, money and your knives. But maybe most importantly, sharp knives are a lot more fun to work with.

  • Sharp knives are more satisfying to work with and reduces food waste up to 10 %.
  • Working with sharp knives is safer.
  • Maintanance on honing rods works fine, but after some time the knife will not regain its full sharpness and should be re-sharpened.
  • Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener is made from high quality materials and is extremely durable. Estimated life span with normal use is 20 - 25 years.
  • You and your colleagues can benefit from keeping your knives razor sharp at all times, without them ever having to leave the kitchen.

Sharpening Class - Knife Sharpening For the Commercial Kitchen

Sébastien and Johan from Tormek show you how to sharpen most knives you'll find in a restaurant kitchen; regular chef's knives, pairing knives, filleting knives, ham knives, ceramic chef's knives, single-beveled sashimi knives, steak knives, meat cleavers, mandolin blades and s-knives. All with one machine - the Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener.

Sharpening Class - RBS-140 Round Blade Sharpening Attachment

Sébastien and Johan from Tormek demonstrates the RBS-140 Round Blade Sharpening Attachment. It allows you to sharpen round, rotary blades with your Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener.

Sharp Knives, Fast

Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener is a kitchen knife sharpener that allows you to get a professionally sharpened knife in a matter of minutes. With over 45 years of experience in sharpening and with the help of chefs from the Swedish Culinary Team, the machine was specially designed to meet the professional’s demand for sharpness and user friendliness.

When working in a commercial kitchen, time is one of your most valuable assets. Hand sharpening on whetstones is a time-honored tradition trained chefs use to keep their knives functionally sharp. The problem is that it is time consuming and difficult to achieve precise and repeatable results. With the Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener you will get a professionally sharpened knife in a minute. You set and lock your desired edge angle and have consistent sharpening every time.

Your Knives Will Never Leave the Kitchen

Compared to a conventional sharpening service, which can take days, your knives will never leave the kitchen when having a Tormek knife sharpener on site. Plus, you will save money in the long run. A restaurant that uses a sharpening service for 10 knives will recoup the cost of a Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener in less than a year.

Safe Knife Sharpening That's Gentle on Your Knives

A sharp knife is a safer knife. It cuts cleaner, more precisely and has less risk of slipping since it requires less pressure. When sharpening a knife on the Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener, the knife guide maintains a constant angle against the grinding wheel to yield a sharp edge with even bevels on both sides of the knife. You are in control and have full support while sharpening which reduces the risk of injury.

The Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener is gentle on your knives. “Sharpen, don’t shorten.” Thanks to the slow rotating diamond grinding wheel and the high accuracy, the machine does not remove any more steel than necessary, making your knives last longer. There is no risk of heat developing, so your knives won't lose their temper, which can happen when using high-speed sharpeners.

Knife Sharpening Angles - Manufacturers' Recommendations

The recommended edge angle of your knife is often written on the knife's packaging. If you don’t find it there you can often find it on the manufacturer’s website. We have created a list where you find the angle recommendations from some “well-known” knife manufacturers.

We love working closely with our customers. When we developed the Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener, our ambition was to offer chefs a solution to achieve sharp edges whenever needed. Working with the Swedish Culinary Team during the development process, we identified the important key design factors of a professional kitchen knife sharpener. We still work closely with the Swedish Culinary Team and make sure that they always have sharp knives to work with in the kitchen, especially before big competitions like the Culinary World Cup and the Culinary Olympics.
