The knife, tool with many variations

.

A knife is a cutting tool or cutting implement. It is more than just a blade and handle (or cutting edge and handle). The lengths vary according to the application, whether it is necessary to be able to apply more or less force, as well as the shape of handles and cutting surfaces has many variations. In the latter case, we distinguish smooth cutting edges and serrated cutting edges. Handles are made of wood, plastic or metal. In addition to the variety in design, handles are also available in a multitude of decorative surfaces of the handles.

Which knife do you need?

Our assortment houses even the smallest of knives for DIY and manual labor: the Stanley knife. This super handy little knife is characterized by the fact that it consists of a blade of mini blades, breaker blades, which are breakable and can be pushed forward to the desired cutting edge length with a slide from the plastic sheath. The foil knife for opening cardboard boxes without damaging the contents. The hobby knife for left- and right-handed use with separate blades in the casing. We have these in plastic and metal versions. The latter is mainly intended for workshop environments.

Brazing knife and other variants

.

A special version is the deflashing knife, with a 360-degree rotating tip with which burrs can be removed on steel, copper, brass, plastic, etc. Also present in our range is the precision knife, which also has replaceable blades and is mainly used in manual labor. The folding knife has a serrated edge and safe blade lock. The carpet knife for cutting carpet and vinyl plus the rotary knife and the multipurpose Swiss pocket knife complete the range.

Structure

.

A knife consists of a blade-top, also called the back. Then the actual blade, the cutting edge. The underside, or cutting edge, is the part used to cut. Then the impact plate, or whisk, the transition from the cutting edge to the handle to avoid slipping on the sharp part. In inexpensive versions, this is usually not present, only a subtle thickening. The actual handle, which these days is often very ergonomically styled. That is, finger grooves that follow the shape of the fingers. As a result, one has a better grip and can apply more force. The final part of the knife is formed by the pommel. Sometimes knives also have a hole in the pommel, called the lanyard eye, so that one can carry it on a lanyard.

The blade, most typical part

.

The most essential part of the knife is, of course, the cutting part, or blade. This is marketed in a variety of shapes. The most common is the one with a curved cutting edge and a straight top. The opposite variant is the sheepsfoot knife, which now has the top curved just the other way around and the cutting edge straight, thus a common knife upside down. The third variant is the teeter-totter-like knife, also called a trailing point blade. In this, the point points upward. The drop point blade with a symmetrically curved top and cutting edge is recognizable as the typical Swiss pocket knife model. This also applies to the clip point blade. Here, the cutting edge is curved and the top is also curved, but less strongly with a sloping cutting edge over a short width. This is also a typical part of the Swiss pocket knife. You can therefore almost always recognize the type of knife by its blade.
