KNIFE SHARPENING WITH A JAPANESE WATER STONE
We use the Tormek T-8 Sharpening System to sharpen, polish and hone all knives and blades that have a non-standard edge, by hand. This system uses a Japanese water stone and is perfect for Japanese knives, especially if your knife has a non-standard angle.
The wet grinding method involved with this system promises a clean, polished edge without the risk of overheating, as the water helps keep the knife edge cool throughout the sharpening process. This system also removes less metal and allows the knife to keep its temper, significantly extending the life of your blades.
Once we have finished the sharpening process, we then polish and hone the knife over three different stages to ensure the best possible finish.
COMMERCIAL KNIFE SHARPENING
The Catra i100 is one of the world’s best commercial knife sharpeners, producing some the sharpest knives as proved by extensive tests. The system allows us to sharpen commercial knives fast with consistent edge angles on every knife.
Extensive sharpness testing on the ISO 8442.5 tester reveals that levels of sharpness produced on the CATRA model i100 are some of the highest produced by any system. The edge life for any given knife blade steel is also amongst the best achieved for re-sharpenable commercial use knives.
