Our blades are configured for several applications, including:

  • Cutting — Process lots of materials with our knives, from steel to food. Our straight blades can also process items like film and foil. We design and manufacture other knives approved for cutting applications, including guillotine, band and circular, as well. Like our straight knives, these blades can be configured to meet your specific needs.
  • Scoring — Create precise score lines with our blades. Whether you’re working with concrete, glass, stone, film or another material, you can depend on our knives to deliver the power and accuracy required when scoring a product.
  • Dicing — Dice vegetables, fruits, meats and other food products with the superior blade hardness and cutting edge of our straight knives. Whether you’re processing beef, carrots, chicken, potatoes, pork, onions or another food item, you can count on our blades to deliver a precise cut that eliminates reworking and expedites your processing.
  • Skinning — Prepare meats and vegetables with speed and efficiency using our USA-made blades. Our commitment to your needs, as well as selection of materials and edge configurations, ensure we design and manufacture a blade that meets your standards and those of the food industry. Our century of experience also makes it easy for us to replicate your existing knives.
  • Slicing — Depend on our straight knives for slicing materials that range from textiles and nonwovens to adhesives and metals. Give your blades a double blunt, single bevel sharp, double double blunt or another one of our edge configurations to optimize your cuts for slicing.
  • Slitting — Get your next plastic, paper or metal slitting blade from York Saw and Knife Co, Inc. for exceptional and accurate cuts to materials that include nonwovens, textiles, adhesives and more. With our more than 100-year history, we can manufacture a custom-designed metal, plastic or paper slitting blade for you or recommend one of our standard knives to serve as a paper, metal or plastic slitting blade for your facility.
  • Trimming — Divide bulk quantities of materials using our straight knives. Our blades can cut through a range of textiles, like cotton, velour, satin and Kevlar, as well as foam, cardboard, leather, paper and more with accuracy and speed. That gives your team additional time to process and manufacture more products instead of dedicating time to reworking items caused by inaccurate trims.
