The TORMEK way is a dramatic improvement in edge tool sharpening. Anybody can now sharpen and hone an edge with an accuracy previously not possible - much more easily and faster. You can also shape the tool exactly to your needs. Even such complicated shapes as fingernail turning gouges, spoon carving gouges and oval skew chisels with a radiused edge are easily sharpened. And you can exactly replicate a previous sharpening in less than a minute.

The water cooled slow turning grindstone is in perfect harmony with the physical laws governing the steel tool ensuring that the edge does not overheat and lose its hardness.

You finish the sharpening process right on the leather honing wheel, which lets you polish the edge to a razor sharpness with no need for bench stones.

The TORMEK method is safe. At the low speed you can fully control the grinding operation. As no sparks are produced, there is no risk to your eyes and you can safely use the machine in areas of high fire risk.
