NEW Sharpness Tester

Dull knives require more force to use resulting in slips, injuries, poor product yield, slower production, and lower profits. The PRIMEdge Sharpness Tester is a user-friendly system designed to measure the sharpness of an edge accurately and reliably. Using the results of sharpness testing, proper training methods can be employed in your knife room and production line.

The rapid mount design of the PRIMEdge Sharpness Tester ensures quick and easy changeover minimizing incorrect placement. The test media is uniform and not affected by voids, ensuring an accurate reading of the full edge from handle to tip.

  • A Sharp Edge = Increased Productivity, Yields, & Safety

  • Capable of evaluating a wide range of blade types, from hand knives  to machine cutting blades
  • Simple mounting system: no adjustments required with respect to  different handles and no blade alignment necessary.

  • Visual graphic test results provide a colored profile to determine the problematic points at a glance

Output of results include:

  • Sharpness rating down the length of the edge
