Makers and gearheads will have a BESS tester either already in their workshop or on their wishlist.

The mid-range Edge-On-Up PT50B, which samples at 10Hz, costs $189 in the US and €240 in Europe.

Interestingly, the Bluetooth scale from Decent Espresso also samples at 10Hz, has an open API, and costs $99.

Of course, the BESS test media plus test fixture are $60, and one would have to rig their own fulcrum, so this approach really is only for knife nerds who are also computer hackers who are also very serious about the rule against single-use kitchen gadgets.

I shall post follow-ups in due course.
