It is fitted with a fine diamond wheel with 72 teeth per inch and allows us to create a corrugated cutting edge designed to hold fabrics and textiles in place which prevents them from sliding or bunching.

This high-tech system allows us to sharpen all your blades according to the highest standards, with its fine abrasives and polishes removing any marks following the grinding process to guarantee a quality result.

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.

The system features a water-cooled grindstone, and a leather tyred honing wheel. It is powered by a quiet 200-watt motor that maintains a constant speed, even when under a load. The micro-adjuster on the universal support bar allows for easier replication of the sharpening angle, providing exceptional control and ensuring a precise, highly accurate result. Once we have finished the sharpening process, we then polish and hone the knife over three different stages to ensure the best possible finish.

Extensive sharpness testing on the ISO 8442.5 tester reveals that levels of sharpness produced on the CATRA model I 100 are the highest consistently produced by any system. The edge life for given knife blade steel are also amongst the best achieved for re-sharpenable commercial use knives.

This sharpening system is a bench sander featuring a grit sharpening belt that runs over a flatbed, allowing us to re-profile or sharpen a wide range of blade sizes and types with ease. The abrasive belts can be easily changed and replaced according to the blade and the type of restorative work necessary. These grit belts are also designed to remove as little metal from the blade as possible, as well as reduce overheating in the blade by cutting away at the steel rather than rubbing it away. The minimal heat also helps the blade maintain its temper.

Following the sharpening process, we also take care to carefully polish your blades to ensure the best possible finish for your gardening equipment and woodworking tools, regardless of their condition.
