New KJ-45 Knife Jig from Tormek! New features including self centering jaws and secondary guide stop!
Sharpen Knives on the Tormek
The KJ-45 Centering Knife Jig will hold most types of knives for sharpening on a Tormek T-8 or T-4, including household knives, chef's knives, craft knives and knives for hunting or fishing. It also works for many straight drawknives and pruning shears.
Sharpen knives with blades at least 60 mm (2 3/8") long and and 12 mm (8/16") tall. For smaller knives use the SVM-00 Small Knife Jig in conjunction with the KJ-45.
Centers Blade for Symmetrical Bevels
To ensure that the bevels on either side of a knife blade are sharpened evenly, your knife has to be centered in the jig. Tormek's KJ-45 Centering Knife Jig uses two symmetrically moving jaws to achieve perfect centering for blades up to 10mm thick. There is no need to worry about resetting the angle when switching sides of the blade, you get optimal symmetrical results every time.
Centers Tapered Knives Too
The Centering Knife Jig jaws conform to tapered blades as well. If you are sharpening knives that taper from the spine to the edge, with a maximum spine thickness of 6mm, they will be securely held and well centered.
Extra Stop for Tall Knives
The KJ-45 has two guide bar stops. The standard stop provides the usual stable base for sharpening most knives. An extra stop is located closer to the jaws. By employing this stop, the jig can accommodate tall knives like cleavers. When used with the US-430 Extended Universal Support, this opens up a large range of taller knives.
Create Convex Bevels
If you prefer a convex bevel, the KJ-45 has you covered. You can create convex bevels by sliding the jig up and down between the two stops as you sharpen.
Well Balanced and Smooth Sliding
The KJ-45 is made with zinc-cast clamps and a durable composite handle. The composite material saves weight and slides smoothly along the Universal Support Bar. The zinc jaws balance the weight close to the grinding wheel which makes for easier control.
