The T8 has Tormek's Quality Guarantee

For those that understand quality and versatility, there is no substitute to Tormek quality. The T8 has a 7 year manufacturer’s warranty that shows Tormek's long term commitment to quality. By purchasing a Tormek you are making a long term commitment to sharp tools and knives, and Tormek will be there to back it up.

The T8 has Tormek's Repeatability

The key word when sharpening the Tormek way is repeatability. The tools are guided in jigs so you remove only a minute fraction of the steel at each sharpening. Even complicated shapes like fingernail turning gouges, spoon carving gouges and oval skew chisels with a radius edge are easily sharpened to fit your needs. Once the shape is created, you can resharpen quickly and easily. And all of the Tormek Jigs work on the T8.

The T8 has Tormek's Reliability and Safety

The water cooled slow speed grindstone will not overheat steel. There is no worry about taking the temper out of your tool. In addition, there is no grinding dust, the steel particles are deposited into the water trough. And with the low speed, you can fully control the sharpening.

The T8 offers Versatility

A wide variety of guided jigs and accessories are available to customize the Tormek T8 offering you the ability to sharpen knives, scissors, carving tools, wood turning tools, axes, planer blades, and drill bits.

Buying a Tormek is a safe investment in quality and performance. Made in Sweden.
