The KE-280 is designed for continuous commercial use.
Included with your purchase is the machine which is set with fine abrasives (finishing belts), a training DVD and a cleaning brush. We strongly recommend that you also purchase a pair of medium abrasive belts fitted on carrier wheels (for faster reprofiling of knives) and a spare set of fine abrasive belts.
It’s set up with a heavy duty motor and transmission and it’s the V8 in the range of sharpeners.
How the SHARPENER works:
The KE-280 Sharpener features a patented, angle controlled cushion contact system, which produces razor sharp knives and polished edges in seconds.
There are 2 closed-cell rubber covered wheels, each carrying endless Aluminium Oxide abrasive belts. The left wheel sharpens the left side of the blade and the right wheel, the right side. The cushion contact system produces a razor sharp smooth cutting edge which does not require a honing steel. During sharpening, the knife is supported at the correct angle by the central guide. Cleaning and replacement of the abrasives is simple, taking less than 1 minute. Other than this, no maintenance is required.
