Since 1977 Thorvie International LLC has built a solid reputation
as an industry leader in engineering and manufacturing innovative
and cost effective products for the tool sharpening industry,
offering some of the finest saw sharpening equipment and grinding
machines which enable a sharpener to greatly reduce the time needed
to setup and sharpen a woodworking cutting tool.
By 1980 it unveiled to the market newly engineered carbide and
steel saw sharpening machine. This machine could now precision
sharpen cutting tools more easily and efficiently than was
previously possible with conventional sharpening equipment and
machines. It provided the capability to sharpen router bits, spiral
planers, adjustable dados, jointer and planer knives, wood chisels,
hole saws, shaper cutters, and numerous other tools, simply through
the use of easily attachable fixtures.
It became possible to establish a woodworking cutting tool
sharpening service center at one fourth the previous cost necessary
to purchase conventional equipment.
Today Thorvie International successfully stands as a leader with
the experience to meet the demands of the saw sharpening equipment
industry as it moves into the 21st century. Thorvie International
broadened its borders as it manufactures and exports equipment
outside the continental United States to markets such as the Virgin
Islands, Puerto Rico, England, New Zealand, Canada, Honduras,
Australia, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, and South America.
With a product line of over forty unique fixtures and six grinding
machines, it has proven itself to be progressive and innovative in
its approach to serving and fulfilling the needs of its customers.
Thorvie International looks forward to supporting its customers in
their future growth and success.
