Product Details

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.

    I have had a Condor filleting knife since the mid 1980’s. It’s a beast of a thing to sharpen and to keep sharp due to the steel and process involved. The Condor was expensive also, they were well over a $100 in those days. Anyway, I decided to sharpen the Condor Filleter on the KE-3000 and it came up razor sharp. I took it bush and filleted about 40 Barramundi ranging in size from 60 to 90 cm. There were 5 of us, so we took 25 fish home and ate the rest during our 7 day stay. In all that time I did not touch the blade of the Condor and it is still sharp. It is an amazing blade, but thanks to the KE-3000 the blade now stays sharp.

    The bush telegraph is abuzz with these sharpeners and our local people are now finding out how good they are and I have suddenly run out of stock!
    Great product, all going well.

    Hi Scott,
    I have just disassembled my KE 280 in readiness to put in the new grinding belts. The inside is like new other than a little sign of wear on the pressure plates. When I gave it the once over I thought it was in brilliant condition for the amount of work it has done. You mentioned your website in your previous note and a thought a picture of my machine disassembled, even showing that tiny bit of wear on the pressure plates with pictures of the types of knives it has worked on will give potential buyers a realistic idea of what the KE 280 is capable of.

    Let me know if you are interested.

    Cheers Stuart
