The KE-3000 is designed for recreational and semi-commercial use.
The Nirey KE-3000 utilises a totally new concept in professional knife sharpening. Featuring a patented cushion contact system which not only produces edges sharper than when the knife was new, but also produces a polished finish - eliminating the need for honing. The Nirey KE-3000 uses the same sharpening system as the Nirey KE-280 but has a lighter frame, motor and gearbox.
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 re-profiling of knives) and a spare set of fine abrasive belts. Please contact us if you wish to purchase any additional belts.
How the SHARPENER works:
There are 2 closed-cell rubber covered wheels, each carrying endless Aluminium Oxide fine 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.
