IRWIN Industrial Tools has released the Irwin Blue Blade utility knife blade.
Two metals with different properties have been permanently welded together to offer the advantage of both materials. The blade body is made up of flexible spring steel and the cutting edge is made of high-speed steel.
The blades have a tough, durable edge, which is honed for maximum sharpness and long life. They last up to three times longer than traditional carbon steel blades. They are suitable for use on materials such as plasterboard, floor coverings, roof insulation and other heavy-duty materials.
They are flexible, difficult to break and available in purpose-designed dispensers for convenient storage and access.
