Hu-Friedy introduced EverEdge 2.0, its latest innovation in hand scaling instrumentation, at the Chicago Midwinter Meeting.

Hu-Friedy introduced EverEdge 2.0, its latest innovation in hand scaling instrumentation, at the Chicago Midwinter Meeting. Leveraging decades of instrument making experience, Hu-Friedy developed EverEdge 2.0 instruments using a proprietary heat treatment process and enhanced finishing techniques. The optimized steel of EverEdge 2.0 has superior edge retention and wear characteristics that will last the entire life of the instrument. Since it’s not a superficial coating, these characteristics cannot be removed through use or sharpening. EverEdge 2.0 Scalers can be resharpened at any point to extend their life and value.

Understanding the critical importance of scientific evidence in supporting product performance, Hu-Friedy engaged an independent third-party laboratory specializing in blade technology, CATRA, to conduct a detailed scientific sharpness test. The independent test evaluated EverEdge 2.0 and several competitive scalers on two items: sharpness of the scalers when brand new and sharpness after repeated use. The test results show that Hu-Friedy EverEdge 2.0 is 72% sharper out of the box than the next closest competitor. After repeated use (500 strokes), EverEdge 2.0 remains 50% sharper than the next closest competitor.
