It’s a crime to have an unsharp knife in the kitchen.  The Tormek T-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener is the first professional, premium quality kitchen knife sharpener for the home. 

It’s a not so well known fact that a dull knife is actually more dangerous than a properly sharp knife, it needs more pressure to work and is inclined to skid off what you’re cutting and into your finger.

A properly sharp knife is a joy to work with, effortlessly slicing, chopping, paring and filleting. Many of us have bought high quality knives only to not notice their slow and inexorable descent into dullness, essentially wasting our investment.

At home many of us have the classic ‘steel’ which always looks dramatic in use but rarely gives us the edge we need.

Professional kitchens on the other hand often use ‘disposable’ knives that are collected weekly and replaced with freshly sharpened knives taken the week before. A constant rotation that can be relied on.

Or they have a professional sharpening device installed in the kitchen. Now you can too with the Tormek T-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener.

Quick, easy, clean and quiet, it precisely sharpens blades 12 – 60mm high and up to 5mm thick, with unlimited length delivering a razor-sharp cutting edge and a durable angle that won’t dull after every use

The Tormek T-1 Kitchen Knife Sharpener has a sleek industrial design and comes fully assembled with a solid oak handle, powder-coated zinc body, diamond grinding wheel and composite honing wheel. 

Unlike some alternatives, the Tormek T-1 sharpens the entire bevel of the knife, not just the outer edge, and because the bevels can be sharpened separately, there’s the option to set different edge angles on each side of the blade, or sharpen just one side, which is particularly useful for more advanced knives.

This is serious kit for sure and comes at at a serious price, but if you’re a serious cook you won’t regret buying it. Plus you can offer to sharpen all your friend’s knives too, for a suitable bottle of wine!
