Wet stone grinding with a slow running speed gives you full control while
grinding. The wheel will not shatter, and there are no dangerous sparks. The
quiet vibration-free industrial motor is rated for continuous operation, and the
honing wheel has a coupling for fast removal.
With the Tormek System, you do BOTH the initial grinding (when you shape the tool and create the optimal edge angle) and the sharpening on the same grindstone. The grindstone can easily be changed from fast grinding to fine sharpening. Because the grinding and sharpening utilize water cooling, there is no risk of burning the edge and drawing the hardening from the steel. The honing and polishing is carried out on a leather honing wheel.
