Knife Manufacturing & Sharpening

Guarantee the sharpness of your knives

Determine optimal sharpening procedures

Objective quality control system

The objective feedback provided by the Anago KST sharpness analyzer allows manufacturers to determine the optimal sharpening equipment and procedures for their knives.

This technology provides you with a clear and persuasive point of difference from competing manufacturers and enables the application of objective quality control during the manufacturing and sharpening process.

The Anago KST enables you to guarantee the sharpness levels of your blades with the objective test results to prove it.

The KST can identify and pin point blunt spots along the blade prompting optimization of sharpening techniques and systems, ensuring the most effective tools and methods are utilized.

The objective sharpness results can be used to optimise the design of blades, sharpening equipment, and sharpening techniques.

Significant benefits are also obtained in product development and testing. By using the KST, you will be able to compare sharpness variations between knife and blade types, sharpening methods and sharpening systems. This will give you accurate, objective and factual analysis for your product development team and provide you with continuous improvement of sharpening systems and blade design.
