The Tormek original grinding jig SVM-45 is suitable for all kinds of knives; household knives, chef’s knives, handicraft knives and knives for hunting and fishing. It also works with carver’s draw knives. The jig rests freely on the Universal Support so you can follow the curve of the blade.
(For knives with long and thin blades, see SVM-140.)
A Durable Edge
Compared to grinding methods where you quickly pull the knife through a knife sharpener or sharpen it by using a honing stone, the Tormek knife jigs restore the blade to its original and optimal edge angle. So you do not just sharpen or hone at the very tip of the edge, as you do with honing stones or with a sharpening steel, which causes the edge angle to increase unintentionally. After a few sharpenings by hand, the edge sooner or later will need to be restored to the correct edge angle.
