Be a Gr8 Pro with GR8 Pro Safety Knives

GR8 Pro Safety Knives are high performance knives that have a unique moving action.  This means that as the cut becomes more challenging to perform the blade initiates a sliding action to complete the cut.  It is this sliding action which creates a clean cut so that snagging and jamming do not occur.  Due to its heavy duty metal body it is the perfect tool to use in heavy duty areas, so is ideal for materials such as cardboard, twine, multi layered cling film and for cutting bands.  The knife handle and the blade are detachable so that the blade can be changed when blunted.  The time it takes to change a blade on the GR8 Pro Knife is a short and speedy estimated 10 seconds, which prevents you from losing time and getting behind with your jobs!  This stainless steel blade and plastic handled knife make a great pairing for top performance, both at home or in the workplace.  These knives are pocket and finger safe, which means that the blade is enclosed in order to prevent accidents.  The GR8 Pro Safety Knives can be used by left and right handed users and come in a range of colours.

Swann-Morton are Blade-y Marvellous

Swann-Morton are a Sheffield based company, founded in 1932 and have since become world leaders in the manufacturing of surgical blades, scalpels and handles. Their blades act as enabling tools for many professionals from all walks of life, as Swann-Morton offer consistency, reliability and cleverly combine their traditional blade making skills with the latest technologies. The main professionals consistently using Swann-Morton blades are Surgeons, Chiropodists and Podiatrists, Dentists and Veterinarians.

Surgeons and Swann-Morton

There are 34 blade shapes and 12 different handles made by Swann-Morton for their general Surgical Blade range. These blades are used throughout many types of theatres and practices, such as Cardiology, Orthopaedics and Reconstructive surgery units. Blade size and shape is chosen by the surgeon themselves. It is usually dependent on their expertise as to what enables them to be most flexible and dexterous in their specific field.

 

Chiropodists, Podiatrist and Swann-Morton

The preferred Swann-Morton products for Chiropodists and Podiatrists are the range of carbon or stainless steel sterile surgical blades which are ideally suited to them, both practically and hygienically. Often the Swann-Morton ‘Sabre’ is a Chiropodists choice of tool, with its unique shape and ‘closed’ cutting edge used for ‘paring’ and ‘scraping’. This enables both close, fine work, without gouging, leaving a smooth, rounded finish on the touched areas.

 

Dentists and Swann-Morton

Just like the Chiropodists and Podiatrists, Dentists appreciate the carbon and stainless steel sterile surgical blades for a reason. Dentists also use them to perform surgical techniques, including: implantology, labial fraenum, incising abscesses, periodontal surgery and raising skin flaps. The most popular Swann-Morton blade is No.15 because of its ideal blade shape making it perfect for the short, precise incisions which dentist need to make regularly, and amusingly, are the same size blades used for doing neurosurgery on rabbits.

 

Veterinarians and Swann-Morton

Again, Vets prefer to use carbon and stainless steel sterile surgical blades during surgery. The type and size of those blade do however vary, often due to the size of the animal and the medical problem, more so than the ability or experience of the vet. The versatility of the blades are apparent by reading the following:

  • Neurosurgery on a small animal eg Rabbit, would require a 15 or No.20 Swann-Morton surgical blade.
  • A skin Incision on a large animal eg Cow, would require a 22 Swann-Morton surgical blade.
  • Performing specialist vaginal surgery on a Horse would require a 3L or 4L Swann-Morton Handle.

4 Things That Can Go Wrong Without the Right Planer Blades

When completing work within any trade, you want to be sure that you give yourself the best possible chance of quality end results. One of the ways you can do this is through the consistent application of the most reliable tools; which is something we at Knife-Point are accustomed to providing to our customers.

With a great selection of cutting products, we continue to help tradesmen working across a number of different sectors. One such group of clients are those who are employed within the woodworking field. These individuals regularly require top quality planer blades to best do their jobs; which we are always able to supply.

By using planer blades purchased directly from us, you can help yourself to avoid the sort of pitfalls people who are using unreliable alternatives can fall into. We’ve listed some of the things you can look forward to leaving behind when you move to us as your regular supplier:

Accuracy Will be Affected

Whether you’re knowingly or unwittingly using the wrong planer blades, you can be sure that the end results will be the same. If you’ve not taken the time to research the type or size of blade you need, then it’s likely you’ll not see the realisation of the finished products that you’re aspiring towards. If you research the tools you need in detail, you’ll reap the rewards when it comes to the date of completion.

Waste of Materials

The problem with not achieving the end results that you’re hoping for is that you’re likely to have to start again. As a result of this, you’ll lose the monetary investment that you’ve dedicated towards the materials you’ve used in a project, so it’s a given that you’ll feel frustrated as a result. Choose the right cutting tools from this point forward and you can pre-empt the issue.

Loss of Time

As well as your money, you can also end up losing time due to the use of poor quality planer blades. Selecting the right ones from the start – and then making sure that you keep them in pristine working order – can help you to avoid the unwanted scenario of looking back negatively at time you’ve wasted.

Unhappy Customers

Most importantly, you’re not going to satisfy your customers with the products you produce unless they are of an immaculate quality. You can help achieve consistently superb standards with our help of our tools, which will enable you to retain your existing clients and add more to go with them when your reputation for attention to detail grows.

Trimming Knife Blades Ensure Quality Carpet Fitting

As a carpet fitter, there are a number of different ways for you can ensure you carry out high quality work on every job. Taking responsibility for everything from training to the tools that you use should stand you in good stead. We’ve taken a look at 5 points which are worth bearing in mind – including the use of trimming knife blades.

Choose Your Team Carefully

For every job you work on, you’ll want the right team behind you. In all likelihood, you’ll be working with at least one other person – whether it’s for carpet fitting at commercial or domestic premises – so it pays to pick your staff wisely. If you have confidence in their ability and have made sure that they’re well trained, you shouldn’t run into any difficulties.

Manage the Size of the Job Appropriately

To make sure that the work you do is cost-effective, you need to pick the size of your team appropriately. If you’re just fitting carpets for a couple of rooms in a small home, you’re not going to need more than a couple of pairs of hands. In contrast to this, if you’re working on a carpet refit for large commercial premises, then one or two people aren’t going to be enough for you to carry out the work quickly.

Use the Best Materials

It goes without saying that using better quality carpets will enable you to have more chance of satisfying your clients. This doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune on the products that you source; you just need to research where you get them from. By doing so, you’ll learn where you can get the best deals; both for your finances and those of your customers.

Try Our Fantastic Trimming Knife Blades

Making sure you have the right tools is perhaps the most important factor in any carpet fitting job. When cutting materials, it’s essential that you’re able to work precisely and for the implementation of the work there is no better product than our trimming knife blades. With plenty of choice available to you – both in size and quantity – they’re sure to be ideal.

Get Testimonials

A great way to help you get repeat custom is through the publication of client testimonials on your website. With every job you work on you’ll want to make an impression and when you do this, it makes sense to record the happiness of the customer. Simply asking them to put a few words together for you is easy to do and it could well pay dividends for you in the long run.

Stanley Knife Blades One of 5 Crafting Essentials

From card making to the creation of models, crafting provides joy to many people. If you’re one of the individuals who have an interest in this hobby, there are a number of tips you can follow to ensure that any work you do is of the highest quality.

One essential way to ensure success is through the tools you use, as this will have a big influence on both accuracy and end results (Stanley knife blades are ideal). With that in mind, we at Knife-Point have put together a detailed guide surrounding how we can help – and offered some other helpful tips too.

Buy the Best Materials

The better quality the materials you buy to make your products with, the better standard they’re likely to be upon completion. Taking card-making as an example, it’s worth researching both the quality of the card you’re buying and where you can get the most aesthetically-pleasing accessories for them.

Have a Clear Goal

Before you start out with any new crafting task, it can be beneficial to set out exactly what it is that you want to achieve. If you’re producing an item for a client for example, you may feel that precision is of paramount importance. Or, if it’s just for your own enjoyment, you’ll probably be able to relax more and experiment.

Show Versatility to Stand Out

Particularly for those who create craft items as a career, it’s important that you stand out from your competitors. What is that you can offer that other people can’t? Why would they choose to purchase your products over the company they’d normally go to? It’s essential to stamp your own individual style on the products you produce, as this will help you to eclipse competitors.

Fantastic Stanley Knife Blades Can Help

Here at Knife-Point, our Swann Morton and Stanley knife blades are the ideal cutting tools for those carrying out hobbycrafting tasks. We stock both product ranges in abundance, offering great choice when it comes to both the quantities you’re purchasing and the blade sizes that you need. Products from both of these manufacturers are always sure to impress.

Enjoy What You Do

One of the best pieces of advice we can offer is to simply enjoy what you do. Whether you’re crafting as a hobby or for a paid job, you’re far more likely to create better products if you take pride and happiness from the work you do. Passion goes a long way and it’s always worth keeping that in mind. planer blades

6 Useful Safety Tips to Apply When Using Stanley Knife Blades

Stanley knife blades have been satisfying customers for decades. Here at Knife-Point, we stock and supply a variety of these products to our clients; who work across many different trades. The tools are reliable and deliver consistently high quality results, so it’s easy to understand their popularity.

When it comes to actually implementing the use of stanley knife blades, it can be beneficial to follow some simple safety advice. Whether you’re new to using them – or even if you’ve been doing so for many years – our tips will keep you in good health whilst you’re working:

Lock Your Stanley Knife Blades into Place

First and foremost, it’s essential that you ensure that replacement blades are locked into place when it comes to changing your stanley knife blades. As long as you fasten the sharp end to the handle, you’ll be able to ensure total control over the job that you’re carrying out.

Retract the Knife When You’ve Finished Using it

It may sound simple but plenty of people have been hurt simply because they’ve not remembered to draw the blade back into its handle after use. If you leave it showing, someone could easily be cut; so this is advice that’s well worth making part of your routine when using any sort of blade.

Make Sure That You’re Using a Sharp Blade

A worn blade can spell trouble. If you’ve not changed your existing blades for a long time, you’re running the risk of slippage during implementation. By frequently changing your tools, this problem can be avoided to guarantee that you remain in total control. If the blade is tearing rather than cutting, it needs replacing.

Always Pull the Knife Towards You When Making a Cut

When making a cut on a flat surface, it’s vital that you pull the knife toward you; rather than pushing away in the opposite direction. Again, it’s all to do with remaining in control of the work you’re doing. According to advice on the Stanley website; “a pulling motion is stronger and more positive than pushing the knife away from you and the knife is less likely to slip.”

Show Patience When Cutting Thicker Materials

If you’re in a rush, it can be tempting to speed through the work that you’re carrying out. It’s always more important that you take your time; particularly when it comes to cutting thicker materials. Show patience and cut deeper into the material with each pass.

Position Yourself

Another useful tip is to kneel or stand to one side of the line of the cut you are making. This advice should be applied when you’re making cuts on a surface below you.

With that in mind, we’ve put together a few key steps to follow that will stand you in good stead when it comes to installing new planer blades.

Make Sure There is No Power Coming to the Tool

The first tip is an obvious one. To ensure your safety when you’re carrying out a change of blades, always make sure that the power supply is disconnected to the device. Changing the blades whilst the device is live is an absolute no.

Loosen the Bolts and Remove the Existing Planer Blades

The next step is to gently loosen the bolts or fasteners on your handheld device. You don’t need to completely remove the fastenings and easy blade removal will be possible through the initial loosening. Make sure that you take care when removing the blade as it’s likely to still be very sharp. You can then spin the cutter head round and repeat the process on the other side.

Replace with the New Blades

Once you’ve removed the existing blades you can then replace them with your new planer blades. To do this, gently fit the new blade with the shape of the planer blade groove and slide it into place. Hold it in the position where you would like it to remain, then take your wrench and loosely tighten up the outer two bolts on your handheld planer – simple.

Take Care When Tightening

During the tightening process you need to take care when tightening. The new blade will be extremely sharp so don’t rush through the replacement process. Before sliding the blade into place you may also need to remove any resin that has been left behind. You can do this using paraffin and oil or by gently scraping the debris away.

Make Sure the Alignment is Correct

The final thing to take care of is to verify that the knife is central with relation to its position on you handheld planer. This is essential, as it will prevent the knife from rubbing on the edges of the machine. Once this has been guaranteed you can finish tightening the bolts. Again, simply repeat this on the other side.

Stanley Knife Care & Maintenance

Stanley Knife Blades

Stanley Knife Blades

If you want to keep your Stanley Knife blades in tip-top condition, then proper care and maintenance is a must.

It’s important to remember to clean your knife after use, no matter how laborious this might seem. Even high-quality knives like the Stanley Fat Max, or the 1992 won’t last forever, so being sure to take the time and effort required to maintain your blades is crucial if you want to make the most out of your investment.

Luckily, it’s pretty easy to keep your Stanley Knife blades in great working condition. You can simply use a little soap and warm water to remove any debris, or build-up of oils and grime that your blades may have accumulated after use.

Before cleaning your knife, however, it may be best to detach the blade and clean them separately as different handles may require a different type of care and maintenance. This is also important when drying your knives, as it is easier to ensure no water or moisture has collected where the blade is inserted.

A word of caution, however – when using water to clean your knife blades, be sure to thoroughly dry your blades after cleaning them. This is because water can cause corrosion if left in contact with the blade for too long. You must also ensure that the blade is rinsed properly after using soap to clean your knife, as soap suds can cause the metal to tarnish.

Pro tip: If possible, use a lint-free cloth when drying your blades. Lint-free cloth is specially designed not to give off fluff when used, and therefore means there won’t be any build-up of fabric particles when drying off your knives. This means your blades will stay fluff-free and completely clean as you dry them.
