The Tormek T-8 is the top of the line water-cooled sharpening system, and is - by far - the best sharpening system we can find.
If you use tools that need a finely honed, razor-sharp edge, this machine will give you a lifetime of excellent service, and ensure your tools have an edge that allows you to effortlessly work your magic. It can sharpen all manner of tools - knives, scissors, wood chisels, plane irons, spokeshaves, carving tools, lathe turning tools, Axes, and Tormek makes an attachment for nearly all of them. If it has an edge, the Tormek T-8 can sharpen it.
The Tormek Grindstone is constructed so that with the Stone Grader it can be treated to change its property from 220 grit to 1,000 grit. This has obvious advantages. You can make both the first fast grinding and the sharpening on the same grindstone and the same grinding machine and with the same jig setting. After grinding, the 8-5/8" diameter x 1-7/32" genuine leather honing wheel gently removes the burr and hones the edge to razor sharpness.
The T-8 System includes the Advanced Square Edge Jig, Truing and Dressing Tool, Stone Grader, Angle Master, Honing Compound, Handbook, and Instructional DVD and comes with a seven-year warranty.
