Shaping and Sharpening The Tormek method makes a distinction between the shaping and sharpening (or re-sharpening) of a tool. If you have a Tormek machine, you get the best of both worlds: you can create the initial shape on your bench grinder and finish the sharpening on your Tormek water cooled grindstone. The fast steel removal from your high speed bench grinder and the fine surface from your fine water cooled grindstone and leather honing wheel. A finer edge gives the wood a smoother finish with less need for sanding. It also cuts easier than a rough edge and stays sharp longer before it needs re-sharpening.

SVM-00 Small Knife Holder BGK-400 Tormek Bench Grinder Kit

Using this system there is really no limit to how small a blade you can sharpen.

This kit allows you to use your bench grinder and Tormek jigs to accurately re-shape your turning tools.

The new holder works with the Tormek Knife Jig SVM-45; your knife’s handle, rather than the blade, mounts in the SVM-00 holder. The SVM-00 then clamps into the SVM-45. Small knife blades are difficult to sharpen at the best of times. The SVM-00 opens up the ability to work with complete control on a wide range of small knives. You can now sharpen knives of different shapes for whittling, chip carving and detail work as well as narrow chef’s knives and the small blades of folding knives with perfect control.
