EDGE LAB instruments are designed for precise and consistent sharpness testing. They offer two modes of operation: MAX (Sharpness) and SLC (Slicing). The sharpness of blades is determined based on the BESS standard, developed by Mike Brubacher, owner of Edge-On-Up. The EDGE LAB line is also supported by various accessories for a comprehensive sharpness testing experience. E ∙ LAB A is portable, robust, and capable of logging forces up to 5,000 grams.

The product includes a specially designed slice test fixture and different types of test media for sharpness and slicing tests. The E ∙ LAB A model is portable, built to meet the testing requirements of the industry, and includes a heavy-duty load cell sensor that can accommodate and log forces up to 5,000 grams (11 pounds) with 1-gram resolution.
