Product Details

The KE-3000 is designed for recreational and semi-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

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.

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.

    Hi Luke,

    The Nirey Sharpener arrived yesterday. I took it home last night and tried it out; without a doubt the best sharpener I have used. It’s easy to use, does the job quickly and gives a result that is second to none.

    The prompt service from Total Knife Care is also first rate.

    Hi Luke. The KE3000 is really good. I have sharpened about 6 of my Global knives with it and it has done an excellent job. I think my results will only get better as my technique improves. Cheers, Mark.

    Sharpens knives easily, doesn’t take long to develop technique to get a nice sharp edge.

    The quality of the unit seems adequately robust for home use, time will tell.

    The price is extravagant but it works, and doesn’t damage the edge of my damascus steel knives as some cheaper sharpeners have.

    I’ve lost count of the amount of times I have been shown how to sharpen a knife the ‘proper’ way with a stone, but for some reason, I was never happy with the edge.

    Around seven years ago, I came across the Nirey range of sharpeners from Total Knife Care, and since that time, I haven’t looked back. I purchased the KE3000 and watched the demo video and that was it.

    Over the years, I have come to really depend on this machine for ALL my knives. Every single knife in our household has a razor sharp edge thanks to the KE3000. The best part is, once you get that edge by using the three grades of belt available, then it is very simple to keep the knives sharp by just going over them with the fine grade belt. For example, the knives in our kitchen are sharpened once a month, as that is all that is required to keep them in good shape.
    My fishing knives are sharpened a little more regularly and the knives I use for hunting are re-sharpened after each outing.

    The performance of this machine is outstanding and the best example would have to be with my hunting knives as these do really get a serious workout. I am based in Arnhemland, NT and regularly hunt buffalo with both a rifle and a compound bow. Every single buffalo that I hunt is used for meat, both for the local landowners and also for my family, so when I kill a buffalo, I take everything. I have a set of Dexter Russell knives as my hunting knives and I can completely butcher a buffalo with one single knife – that is how good the edge is when using the KE3000 machine. Either in the field, or at home, I never touch a knife up with a steel so the only thing that I use to keep the edge is the KE3000.
    If, in the field, I have more than one buffalo to butcher, and my knife starts to lose it’s edge, I simply put it away and get out the next knife and keep going. Once I get back home, I simply run each knife back through the KE3000 and they are ready to go again.

    Whether at home, out on the water, or out in the bush or the floodplains, my Nirey keeps my knives in great condition. The fact that most of my mates now bring their knives to me for sharpening goes to show just how good these machines are.

    Luke & all,

    Received the sharpener and straight into action.

    It is the answer to having a knife sharp.

    Congratulations on an excellent product.

    As a professional chef I mainly use a 31 cm Victorinox for all my chopping and cutting needs at work. In my 15 year career I’ve tried many different ways of sharpening knives but never really learned how to use a stone so my technique was always haphazard and inconsistent. What a delight to discover a Nirey KE3000 in a new kitchen I started work at because it gave me the opportunity to “try before I buy” and see how good the Nirey operated. On my first attempt at pulling the blade through both sides of the sharpening slots it came up razor-like and to my astonishment was sharper than I’ve ever had it before. At last I found a machine that is easy to use and after a few quick swipes returns my blade to like new condition. I looked online and found a Nirey dealer in the Hunter area and went to purchase my own unit quick-smart! It’s well designed and built tough and my wife is happier than ever all our kitchen knives are sharp again. I have Globals, Mundials, Messermeisters and Victorinox knives and the Nirey handles them all with ease. It’s fantastic to finally have a sharpening unit that does a perfect job. Get rid of your cheap gadgets and buy one of these because long after the cost is forgotten, you’ll still have a beautiful machine that works like a dream sharpening your valuable knives. I’m totally converted.

    We all have knife sharpeners, all purchased with the promise of razor sharp results, most are a disappointment, but the Nirey KE3000 is the ducks guts of sharpeners. I have every knife I own at their most sharpest ever thanks to this little machine. Love how quick and easy it is to use, and although upfront cost is on the high side I will not need to look at or purchase any other sharpeners again. Very happy.

  8. Mark

    Excellent service on our replacement sharpener very prompt after sales service, will recommend this product to anybody who needs sharp knives.

  9. Pete


    The Nirey arrived very quickly thankyou. Have already sharpened a dozen knives or so. Very impressed so far.

    Will be ordering some replacement abrasive belts soon.


  10. Ken

    This is my second 3000. My first one died due to my negligence in not going to YouTube to learn how to change belts. Instead I used a Screwdriver and totally dismantled the machine. I also damaged the mother board.
    I sent it to the boys in Brisbane and they sold me a new machine at a greatly reduced price.

    Top marks for after sales service.
