Product Description

Key Features

  • Allows both axe bevels to be ground at exactly the same angle
  • Adjustable height for different angles if required

With the Tormek Axe Jig SVA-170 you will be surprised to see how sharp you can get an axe. The jig firmly supports the axe, and enable 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.

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.


Customer Reviews

By on
"I found this jig is a bit more difficult to use than the SE-77 jig. Its feels like its very free hand in its sharpening. I read the manual and watched the video and dove straight in. Was a bit confused whilst setting the angle at first because the axe has a double bevel. I understood it after the sharpening process though. Taking it slow and steady at first gets an understanding of how the jig is works. And having used it, it now feels a bit more natural. "
