Tormek

The Tormek Honing Compound is used on the leather honing wheels. Grain averages 3 microns (roughly 8000 grit). This will polish the edge of tools and knives after using the Tormek Grindstone.

One application lasts for 5–10 tools. Then re-impregnate the honing wheel with a few drops of oil and apply fresh honing compound. Work the honing compound into the leather. Do not let the compound dry, apply more oil if necessary.

Using the Honing Compound
When new, impregnate the leather with light machine oil. This will soften the leather and cause the honing compound to penetrate the leather.
Apply a thin string of the honing compound before starting the machine. Rotate the wheel by hand.
Start the machine and distribute the compound by pressing a tool gently against the wheel. Let the compound penetrate the leather.
Always hone away from the edge!
If you hone towards the edge, it cuts into the wheel!
Received my Sharpening System today,(Norton IM83) and I've got to tell you that I am excited about using this product. I've been in the meat cutting business for 45 years, and as you can imagine, I've used allot of different types and styles of sharpening equipment. I have had 3 Norton Multi-Oil Stone units in my lifetime, and then I see this IM83 and I think that this is what I need to carry with me when and wherever I go. I just LOVE this little box full of expertise equipment to keep me sharp and at a razors edge. Thank you for the service, it was fast and easy, and I received it within 3 days of ordering. I know knives and how they work, and I can't wait to start putting that edge on my "other" knives I own.
