The Tormek Marker Method
- Color the bevel, mount your edge tool in the right jig and place it onto the Universal Support.
- Turn the grindstone by hand and check where the coloring is removed.
- Raise or lower the Universal Support until the coloring is removed from the tip to the heel. Now, the angle is just right and it’s time to start sharpening!
