"The Sharpness Tester allowed us to not only test people’s knives, but also help them evaluate the results and send them away with instructions to improve their sharpening technique. They could return in five minutes, retest their knife and see a huge improvement."
"Implementing the Anago KST200e Sharpness Analyzer has resulted in reduced Workers Compensation claims, reduced knife usage and improved Team productivity. All this without having to replace our sharpening equipment or personnel."
"I like the fact we have something concrete to show people about their knife. If they are having trouble sharpening or maintaining their knife, we can actually verify that. I would definitely recommend it to other sites."
"By objectively measuring knife sharpness and then adjusting sharpening techniques, an outstanding payback can be produced in terms of increased worker productivity, improved motivation and a reduction in injuries."
"Better knife sharpening techniques have resulted in higher yields, with workers able to cut much closer to the bone."
"We have implemented a testing program for new and old employees which gives us the information we need to identify where further training is required, as well as setting minimum sharpness requirements for both new hires and more experienced knifehands."
"Now we have a more accurate, objective measurement system that gives us an accurate picture of which sharpening procedure works best for individual knife and blade types."
