With the Tormek Axe Jig SVA-170 will get your axe extremely sharp! The jig firmly supports the axe, and enables you to sharpen it with a constant edge angle.

The rotation of the stone presses the axe firmly into the jig and enhances the power from your hand, giving the edge a suitable grinding pressure onto the stone. You will not get any snags into the stone, which can easily occur if you grind free hand towards the grinding direction. 

When using a high-speed dry grinder, it is easy to burn the edge and destroy the axe, with Tormek there is no such risk, the water continuously cools the edge.

Key features: 

  • Straight or curved edges - since the head of the axe is supported freely on the rubber lined stop you can follow the shape of the edge, straight or curved. A forestry hatchet has a curved edge while a carpenter’s axe can have an almost straight edge.
  • Edge angles to suit your work- choose the edge angle that is best suited for your type of axe. An all-round axe for sport and leisure has a larger edge angle than a carpenter’s axe. A splitting axe must have an even larger edge angle.

You can choose to sharpen the carpenter’s axe asymmetrically with a larger grinding bevel on the left side (if you are right-handed). The axe will then cut more easily since the cutting force is closer to the cutting direction.
