Hardness tester

I’ve been thinking of getting a more accurate way to test the HRC of my blades. At first I was gonna get one of those Japanese file kits... but then I found this on eBay 

https://m.ebay.com/itm/PTC-INSTRUMENTS-PORTABLE-STEEL-HARDNESS-TESTER-MODEL-316/142542828570?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908131621%26meid%3Dafe67070aba04cd784066cb3744878eb%26pid%3D100678%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D5%26sd%3D142542828570&_trksid=p2481888.c100678.m3607&_trkparms=pageci%3A5024fc9d-b813-11e7-b7f5-74dbd18027a4%7Cparentrq%3A4a2b54d515f0a9c56ba16ce1fffbd63e%7Ciid%3A1

i think I can get a pretty good deal on this, it retails for about $800 

my question is If this is a good way to measure HRC on Knives. I’m not sure how they work, and the manual is missing... but I’m sure I could figure it out :) 

any advice is appreciated. 

Thanks!
