Really sharp, really simple

The Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener provides professional sharpening. This concept is a progression of the diamond whetstone, and it gives you full control in combination with the patented angle guide. However, you don't just hone the cutting edge as with manual whetstones, honing rods, or conventional sharpeners. Instead, you resharpen your knives and give them a new, precise edge that's evenly sharpened across the entire bevel. It's like having professional sharpening service at your restaurant!

Adapted for restaurant kitchens

Work in restaurant kitchens, industrial kitchens, or meat processing is often fast-paced and results-oriented. The Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener gives you perfectly sharpened knives in 60 seconds.

The separate composite honing wheel comes with an integrated polishing agent to simplify handling and minimize contamination. What's more, the steel particles from the sharpening process are collected on the magnet in the guide, so you can sharpen your knife in the kitchen whenever you need to. Sharp knives are much more enjoyable to work with, result in less waste and ensure a clean cut for better results. But then, you already knew that.

Kind to your knives

Knives are a chef's best friend, and you really should take care of your friends. Working with a blunt or damaged edge makes you more likely to damage the knife further, or injure yourself. The Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener has a fine-grained diamond grinding wheel that rotates at low speed to avoid unnecessary removal of material, and there's no risk of destroying the knife's tempering. You can easily set a precise sharpening angle to get the most out of your knife.

You can also use the coarser grinding wheel DWC-200 Diamond Wheel Coarse to repair a damaged edge faster or resharpen the blade at a new angle. The extra fine grit DWE-200 Diamond Wheel Extra Fine provides the highest sharpness along with the finest surface finish.

The patented guide comes with a knife protection felt that catches the steel particles missed by the magnet, so you can make even your finest knives razor-sharp without scratching them.

Statements from Tormek Friends

The Tormek T-2 really is the perfect solution for us, because it's both easy to use and convenient (in terms of both storage and use). The knife sharpener is very intuitive, with a clever angle guide that keeps the knife stable while you sharpen it. It's also easy to take out and put away whenever we need to use it. The advantage of always having sharp knives for a professional kitchen like ours makes it hard to stop using it once you've started.

Fast and professional all in one package! You always used to have a trade-off – quick sharpening but with inferior results, or professional sharpening that meant you had to give your knives to someone else, which of course you don't really want to do.

Works well, no need to send my global knives off for professional sharpening or mess around with whetstones.
