Slitter knives have a design meant to slit a wide range of materials in various applications. They find use in many industries because of their ability to cut materials such as paper, plastic and textiles. At York Saw & Knife, we sell straight knives and rotary blades. We can design blades for a variety of machine models and customize each result for our customers. If you need a knife for a slitting application, the York Saw team will partner with you to find a slitting knife solution that meets your needs.
Most slitter blades feature a beveled edge for optimal cutting power. A beveled edge allows a blade to slit material instead of creating standard cuts. When a slitting knife has the primary purpose of making punctures, it will have teeth. These teeth create smaller slits in progression, such as the ones found on tear-off paper products. Our sales engineers can help you determine which blade solution will work best for your application.

As an original equipment manufacturer, you’ll appreciate our competitive prices and fast turnaround times that allow you to maximize your profits.
