Welcome to ASC

ASC is a unique knife sharpness certification and testing system offered by Anago, an internationally recognised provider of quality knife sharpness control systems and consulting services.

Knife buyers generally have no guarantee that the knife they are supplied will meet their expected objective standards of knife blade sharpness. The ASC Knife Sharpness Certification System is designed to ensure that consistent levels of knife sharpness are maintained by knife suppliers and users alike.

Suppliers exhibiting the ASC mark have implemented reliable knife sharpness control systems and undertake a strict and regular auditing process of their knife sharpening systems.

By joining the ASC programme, organisations involved in industries that depend on knife sharpness can build robust quality control into their knife sharpening processes, improving their own market position and adding value to their product offerings.
