Frequently Asked Questions

1What are the key differences between a KST200/ KST300 Anago Knife Sharpness Tester and the improved Anago Analyzer a230?
  • An ‘all one unit’ with integrated technology and hardware – (no laptop required and less dependency on your IT staff)
  • 10-inch touchscreen that provides full reporting that automatically receives software updates

  • Overall a sleek new design with a number of really practical design features (like a space for the calibration mass to be stored)
  • Scanner functionality provides a fast, easy and accurate mechanism to enter data into your inventory system and track your knives.
  • Best of all – it operates 20% faster than both the KST200 and KST300!
2How long will you still offer the original Knife Sharpness Tester?
Anago is offering three models to provide choice dependent upon your requirements.
3Why should I buy the new machine?
Two key reasons: now no need to purchase a separate laptop and operationally the machine tests 20% faster. The improvements to your knife sharpness program will provide the return of investment tenfold.
4Why should I buy Genuine Anago Test Media?
The Anago Sharpness Tester range uses one consumable – genuine Genuine Anago Test Media. It is specifically prepared for operation within an Anago Sharpness Tester to provide consistent and accurate results. The fake test media is hiding dull knives and prevents customers from improving their systems, resulting in reduced productivity and safety performance.
5Where can I buy Genuine Anago Test Media?
Genuine Anago Test Media can be purchased direct from an authorised Anago distributor. View the below link for a full list of our global distributors: https://anago.co.nz/contact-us/
