The Tormeck is an incredibly capable sharpening tool and unlike grinding on a high speed grinder, it will protect the metal hardness of the cutting tool while restoring a damaged or dull blade. The jigs will insure proper angles on a blade.


Before using the tool, understand these rules:

  • Never operated the tool without water.
  • Read the manuals before operation.
  • Talk to someone who has used it before for a quick hands-on in person tutorial, about 10 minutes.
  • Suggested Videos to watch:
