Grinding wheel for both fine and coarse sharpening

The Tormek T-4 Bushcraft allows you to sharpen a variety of outdoor knives, hunting knives, fishing knives and axes. This sharpening machine comes with Tormek's SG-200 Original Grindstone, which provides a wide range of sharpening properties in a single grindstone. You can easily alternate between coarse sharpening at 220 grit and finer sharpening that gives a surface equivalent to 1000 grit. This allows you to restore very badly damaged tools and make them as good as new, but you can easily sharpen tools that are just blunted, too.

Finishing off your sharpening with the leather honing wheel polishes the bevel and removes the burr formed during sharpening. This gives your tool maximum sharpness and a polished edge that lasts.

Swedish-made quality machine

The Tormek T-4 Bushcraft has a fully cast zinc upper body that integrates the vital parts of the machine such as the motor, main shaft, handle and the precision mounts for the universal support. The base of the housing is made of impact-resistant green ABS plastic. All in all, this gives you a sturdy machine that can withstand pressure and offers unbeatable precision. The robust handle means you can easily move the machine when needed.

Sharpens all your tools

Tormek offers a set of jigs for different tools that can be purchased separately and used on the same system, depending on your needs. Chisels, drill bits, scissors and woodturning tools are all examples of other tools you can sharpen with the Tormek T-4 Bushcraft.

Reviews

Statements from Tormek Friends

I care for nature, just as I care for my knives and axes. Not only is a sharp edge very satisfying to use, it's also sustainable in many ways. The Tormek T-4 Bushcraft gives me long-lasting sharpness with minimum loss of steel. It's bringing my favorite old knives back to life, too, so I don't think I'll throw a knife away ever again. And last but not least, having sharp knives saves me a lot of time when I'm working in the wilderness.

Everyone deserves to work with sharp knives! When hunting, in the forest, when cooking – everywhere. And a Tormek T-4 Bushcraft makes it easy to get things right. Everyone can have really sharp knives all the time, so it's perfect for hunting parties as well as individual hunters. It pays for itself quickly and lasts a long time.

Reviews from Tormek users

Really easy to start using.

Robert, Gävleborg

Excellent products. I'm really pleased with my T-4 Bushcraft and the 806 accessory kit!

Jonas, Västernorrland

It's great that Tormek sharpening classes are available on YouTube, so my hunting and kitchen knives are amazingly sharp now. My one regret is that I didn't buy a Tormek a long time ago. Very pleased

Bengt, Örebro
