50 Year Warranty:
  • Tormek was founded in 1973 by Torgny Jansson. His vision was to make sharpening with the highest precision easy. 50 years later we can conclude that he succeded
  • This year, Tormek celebrates 50 years of making high quality water-cooled sharpening systems. What better way to celebrate and make a quality statement than to create a really cool machine with a 50-year warranty? You are basically guaranteed sharp tools for half a century. Now that’s a real celebration!
  • The warranty is 5 years plus an additional 45 years when you register your machine online, within 90 days from purchase. Read more about the warranty here
Tormek Truly Loves Diamonds:
  • We can’t stress this enough. Diamond is the hardest material in the world, and by far the hardest abrasive. It lets you sharpen any material you want. So yeah, we really love diamonds
  • The Tormek T-8 Black comes with the DF-250 Diamond Wheel Fine. It’s equivalent to 600 grit. This means you get an efficient material removal rate, but still a viable finish on your tools. If you’re not yet in love with diamonds, you will be
Bold and Intense Design:
  • We wanted to make a statement for our 50-year anniversary. The Tormek T-8 Black has an intense, all-black visual appearance that will certainly accentuate the sharpening station in your workshop. The cast zinc anniversary emblem is a constant reminder of the quality of the machine and its bold 50-year warranty
Efficient and clean honing
  • To match the all black housing of the Tormek T-8 Black, we have equipped it with the CW-220 Composite Honing Wheel. This choice goes way beyond design though. This honing wheel requires no honing compound since it has integrated polish. So your new beauty won’t get dirty that quickly
  • The CW-220 Composite Honing Wheel is also bit more aggressive than the leather honing wheel. This means it removes the more stubborn burrs at a higher efficiancy, which goes especially well with our diamond grinding wheels
Same Same, but Different:
  • The Tormek T-8 is the true original water-cooled sharpening system. In many ways it is the same as centuries old sharpening techniques. It has a round, rotating grinding wheel. It rotates at a low RPM. It runs with water. A few simple fuctions that gurantees the retention and quality of your tools
  • But then, the Tormek T-8 is a different breed. Its many innovations and different patents ensures reliable operation and unparalleled precision. All while making usage as easy as possible
  • The Tormek T-8 Black is the same machine as the Tormek T-8 Original, with just a few exceptions. Why change a winning concept?
  • The unique features that sets the Tormek T-8 Black apart:
  • Intense, all-black housing
  • 50-year Tormek warranty, 5 years + 45 years when you register online
