Product Review: Anivo Blade Setter Pro Part 2

10 Apr

Like I said before in Part 1, the idea of the blade setter pro had me hype. However, the over all utility of the T-Outliner and Outliner Anivo Blade Setter pro, left us feeling a bit disappointed. Our analysis of the Andis T-Outliner & Outliner Blade Setter Pro, is based on the Research, Design, Function, and effectiveness of the product.

Anivo Blade Setter Pro Outliner & T-Outliner in the Box

When it comes to the T-Outliners and Outliners Blades, the designs varies by various types and manufactures. The Andis, Forfex, and Pro-Mate blades all vary based on shape, design and width.

Taking that into consideration, that should have been kept in mind when designing the blade setter pro.

The older Andis Blades, Forfex Blades and Pro-Mate blades have a thinner design. That effects how well you can set the blades, when using this apparatus. Actually, the current Andis blades that are manufactured, don’t fit properly. This makes setting the blades properly impossible.

Showing the difference in width between new and old Andis Blades. The old one is on top (Narrow) and the new one is on the bottom (Wider). The new Andis Blades are difficult to set in the Anivo Blade Setter , because the blade is wide and doesnt fit properly.


However, since the older Andis, Forefex and Pro-mate blades are thinner, setting the blade accurately every time is possible, when using those blades. In other words, the blade setter pro is effective, when using the blades that have the thinner designs.

More research should have been done to compensate for the variances, that are associated with each type of blade. Or, different versions of the apparatus should be designed to solve this problem.

Despite the short comings.  The Anivo blade setter pro is really effective, when used with the right blades. It makes setting the blades very easy.  If it saves you time, ultimately it will make you money too.  however. Make sure that you use either Forfex Blades,Pro-mate Blades or older Andis Blades.   Those blades are thinner and will fit in the device.  The new Andis Blades will not fit in the device, because they are wider.

The older blades (on top) and new blades on the bottom. The New blades has prongs on the side of the screws.

Overall, Anivo has made a product,  that has the potential to revolutionize the way we set blades.  When some variances are considered,  this product will be a great contributor to the barbering industry. Good Job Anivo, we will do additional reviews on the Styliner Blade Setter Pro very soon. Stay Tuned!

    When did Andis started making the T-Outliner blade thicker?

      I’m not sure when. I’m assuming a few years ago. I realized that when I compared, my older blades from my collection to the ones I just purchased.

    The blades look the same size to me. The top blade is standard while the bottom blade is the T edjer
