Tomorrow Tuesday september 27 is a big day for the Tormek team working with content and marketing. We are launching our new website which has been in the making for quite a while now. This will be the first step in building and enhancing our communication with our fantastic users and curious future users. Many new features and much more to come. It is based on a completely different platform that will perform much faster and provide many new possibilities for us and our visitors. This given, the forum will have a different URL (address), but of course, linked from our webpage as before. The forum will also be moved to another provider. The new address will be and most old links will be redirected to the new address.

We hope that the switch will go as smoothly and seamlessly as possible but are also humble before any technical issues there might be. Hope you all will be as well. We are doing this for you guys  :)

Wish us luck and we will hope for the best.

Dear Tormek Forum Community,

Once again we have great news, this time for all you knife sharpening enthusiasts out there!

Tomorrow we will be making two new products official. Namely two new, self-centering, patented knife jigs! Product pages will be published tomorrow Friday March 18. New live episodes in English, French, German and Swedish are to be expected quite soon as well.

We hope you are as excited about this as we are. Stay tuned – and stay sharp!

Hi Ken,

No problem at all! We want you dedicated forum members to be the first to know any news whenever we have the possibility to inform you first. We are very grateful for your insights, and look forward to getting your feedback on our new household knife sharpening machine.

All specs are available on the product page under the Specifications tab:

However we have completely missed the grit size of the new diamond grinding wheel. We must have taken it for granted, since it is so clear in our own minds. The grinding wheel is a Fine wheel, which means it has a grit size of 600. Thank you for asking this, we will update the product page with this information.

The honing wheel is the same as for the Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen. It will, however, get renamed to PW-160 Conical Composite Honing Wheel for both machines in due time (it currently holds the old naming of PW-160 Polishing Wheel for Tormek T-2 Pro Kitchen).

Hope this answers your initial questions.

Thank you again Ken, and as always, Stay Sharp!
