TSPROF Blitz Pro sharpening system
TSPROF Blitz Pro - professional version of a compact knife sharpener. The Blitz Pro is an indispensable assistant for sharpening most types of blades, from the smallest folding to large kitchen knives. Overall dimensions of the sharpener: 13 x 12 x 12cm.
The weight is only 1.5 kg. It is easy to take it with you on a friendly outing in nature, it is convenient to store it at home.
Blitz Pro is equipped with a Flip-n-Sharp rotary mechanism that allows you to sharpen the knife without removing it from the clamps. A unique feature of the device is the V.C. Angleset system. Setting the angle on the Blitz occurs due to the movement of the knife relative to the virtual centre. Which gives additional comfort when sharpening and reduces the impact of abrasive on the cutting edge.
The Blitz Pro body has a black anodized coating made according to the international Qualanod standard. Anodizing gives the sharpener a stylish appearance, strengthens the aluminium structure and increases corrosion resistance.
Blitz Pro is equipped with whole-milled aluminium clamps, which are made of high-strength aircraft aluminium with black anodizing. The clamps move along the entire length of the frame in one movement and allow you to position the knife as accurately as possible. Due to the monolithic design of the clamps, they have increased resistance to pressure on the abrasive, thereby ensuring the consistency of the angle at all stages of work, from roughing to finishing.
The clamps do not require calibration and adjustment to blades with different geometries. They allow you to sharpen kitchen, folding, hunting, multitool knives with a spine thickness of up to 4.5 mm. The length of the frame is 105 mm, which allows you to sharpen a knife with a blade length of up to 280 mm. The clamps are adjustable with an L-shaped Allen key 2.5 mm.
A distinctive feature of the Blitz Pro version is the hinge unit, which is not limited by the size of the body. The 360 hinge unit gives complete freedom when sharpening. The range of sharpening angles with a 360 hinge has been increased to 70° (35° per side). Which significantly expands the range of sharpened knives. The abrasive guide is installed in a hinge assembly with a gap of only 0.02 mm. The silent movement of the guide rod gives a new level of comfort when working.
The guide rod of the abrasive holder is made of steel. The stops of the abrasive holder, the coupling and the limiter are made of aluminium with black anodizing. The rod allows you to clamp up to 150 mm long abrasives on blanks.
— Extra Coarse (≈F150) - rough pre-sharpening, which will help to form the shape of the grind.
— Coarse (≈F220) - the next stage, after the formation of the general grind of the knife. The beginning of the usual sharpening of the knife.
— Medium (≈F400) - removes the micro-saw formed during the previous stages.
— Fine (≈F600) - сompletes the main sharpening. This level is enough to cut tender tomatoes and not to blunt the knife from cutting the rope.
— Very Fine (≈F1000) - even finer finishing of the cutting edge to the “hair whittling " state.
The Blitz Pro folds easily and while folded takes up very little space.
Many professional sharpeners got used to the fact that sharpening machines are either bulky stationary systems or very simple pocket devices. We are changing the concept of the professional sharpening. TSPROF Blitz is completely made of metal, like the large TSPROF K03 and has the same high level of accuracy but with the size slightly larger than a tea cup.
Modern processing methods and the reduction of the size of the turning mechanism allowed us to produce parts with high accuracy in a single technological cycle.
V.C. Angleset system — means convenient angle setting.
The minimum sharpening angle is 8° per side, and the maximum is more than 25°. The optimal geometric dimensions of the angular joints of the kinematic scheme of the sharpener can minimize the weight of the abrasive holder. Flat abrasive, leaning on the cutting edge in working position always stays in the horizontal plane and does not change its orientation almost in the entire range.
This becomes especially important at the final stages of sharpening, when it is necessary to control the "fluent" touch of the abrasive, excluding the influence of dynamic loads from the movement of the abrasive holder during sharpening. Convenient rotation handle gives a quick and uniform change of the angle, leaving the abrasive in place and creating good conditions for controlling the blade.
TSPROF Blitz Pro has got all the advantages of a clamping frame mount with two independent clamps variable connected to the frame and facilitated 180° rotation without reinstalling the knife. We have kept the famous swivel mechanism with all the advantages of a clamping frame with two independent clamps.
Two clamps made of constructional steel securely clamp knives with a blade length up to 200 mm. The whole-milled clamping frame is securely fixed in the working position, the rotation occurs with a slight push of the rotation lever.
