Tormek KJ-140 Wide Centering Knife Jig
When you mount your knife in the KJ-140 Wide Centering Knife Jig, the knife self-centres in the jig, whatever its thickness or geometry. This means that the jig centres everything from the thinnest knives to knives with a blade thickness of up to 10 mm (7/16 inch). It also means that knife blades that taper off from spine to edge and heel to tip are centred in the jig, providing symmetrical bevels on both sides of the blade. Easy setup, perfect results.
The KJ-140 Wide Centering Knife Jig works in the same way as the KJ-45 Centering Knife Jig but has a wider clamp. The wider 140mm (5 1/2 inch) clamp stabilizes thin and flexible knife blades and provides more support for an even bevel along the entire blade. Of course it can also be used with larger knives with more stable blades, such as chef's knives.
Please note that the KJ-140 Wide Centering Knife Jig cannot be used with the SVM-00 Small Knife Holder. The KJ-45 Centering Knife Jig is used instead.
Because the KJ-140 Wide Centering Knife Jig is positioned with the stop resting freely against the universal support, you are able to follow the shapes of the knife, always guided by the universal support as a reference point. This makes it possible to sharpen knives with different blade shapes, from fillet knives to recurve knives and classic chef's knives.
