Straight knives

Straight knives are characterised by their small thickness and their particular length. Cutting tools that are also classified as flat knives have a straight or oblique cutting edge, Depending on the application, they incorporate slots, toothing or profiles. The diversity of the straight knives within the machine knife category is huge – and their applications are numerous. Anywhere in trade and industry where there is cutting, stripping, scraping, perforating, punching, shearing, splitting, veneering, cross-cutting, granulating or planing, there is a high chance that a straight knife will be used in the process.
