In the case of kitchen knives and tableware the sample is held by hand with a toggle clamp. When the clamp is attached either the single or combined weights may be hung from the clamp to provide a pull load when the sample handle is lifted to raise the weights from the floor.
For larger knives it is necessary to have a supported clamp with the heavier weights supported and lowered by a jacking system. The equipment is black oxide coated and has a full calibration certificate.
