A Standard Test for Sharpness

How sharp is the edge? That is both the most important question a sharpener can ask, and possibly the hardest to answer. There are tests like cutting paper or shaving hair that are often used to demonstrate sharpness, and they are helpful to a point, but they lack the precision and standardization required to truly answer the question. However, a precise and standardized testing method is available. It is achieved using the PT50 Series Sharpness Testers from Edge-On-Up.

Measure and Quantify

The PT50 Series of Edge-On-Up Sharpness Testers give the ability to measure and quantify the level of sharpness of any given edge. They work by measuring the force in grams required to cut through a standardized, calibrated medium. The result is a number that can be used to compare the relative sharpness of edges.

Designed for the Home User

There are three models of PT50 Sharpness Testers. The Edge-On-Up Home Edge Tester (PT50C) Is intended for the home user or hobbyist looking for a reliable way to distinguish between a well sharpened edge and a poorly sharpened one, and everything in between.

The Home Edge Tester Features:

  • 5 measurements-per-second processor
  • 25 Gram Resolution
  • Portable Lightweight Design
  • 3 Button Operation
  • 25 Disposable Test Clips Included
  • 2 AAA Batteries Included

Test Medium Included

The Home Edge Tester includes the Disposable Clip System (Test clips have not yet received full BESS certification).

The PT50C has a one year manufacturer's warranty.

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
