The AK is the flagship of the Hanchett line and the standard of the industry. AK’s have proven their worth in grueling, high-production environments the world over.

AK machines are available to grind parts up to 485 inches long, and longer, to extremely accurate tolerances at high production speeds.

Their massive cast iron base, heat-treated for molecular stabilization, virtually eliminates unwanted vibration. Durable vee and flat ways, handscraped to precision tolerances for minimal wear, are protected from airborne particles and vapor by belted covers.

The AK’s traveling head uses only about half the space of traveling table type grinders. Stock removal amounts can be set by manual or automatic infeed. The AK sharpens a wide variety of part types, shapes, and sizes to exacting tolerances, including straight, bevel, or hollow-ground knives.
