Product Yields
A knife that is not sharpened properly will lead to drag or resistance when pulled through a product.
The COZZINI
PRIMEdge
Solution
COZZINI
PRIMEdge
offers three different levels of sharpening systems which allows you to select the properly sized system to meet your daily knife grinding requirements
Systems designed for high volume, medium volume and lower volume knife sharpening needs.
Sharpening Solutions
High Volume Sharpening Solution

Medium Volume Sharpening Solution
The efficient
COZZINI
PRIMEdge

Twins
” Sharpening System utilizes separate hollow grinding and honing/edging units. The perfect complement to the
Twins
or any sharpening system, the
HG4S-B
Polisher/Buffer delivers a smooth edge on each blade.
Lower Volume Sharpening Solutions
With separate 4” hollow grinding and honing/edging stones, the
HE2
combines blade thinning and honing/edging operations into a single compact machine
The
HE1
's compact tabletop design combines grinding and honing operations into one machine. The low maintenance
HE1
sharpens blades of any length to ensure a consistent cutting edge.
The COZZINI
PRIMEdge
Solution
1. Hollow Grinding:
This thins both sides of the blade simultaneously to create a uniform bevel prior to sharpening.
The 3 Step Solution
2. Honing:
This produces the final cutting bevel, delivering a perfectly even and ergonomically efficient edge.
3. Polishing:
Polishing the knife removes any striation scratches and burrs from the blade edge thus reducing the force needed to cut or slice by 40% to 50%.
