The Leather Knife Roll Designed by a Chef
You can tell a lot about a chef from their knife roll. Unfortunately, from what we hear often, finding a high quality knife roll to protect chefs’ knives doesn’t seem like such an easy task. That’s probably why this beautiful leather knife roll has got so many chefs excited.
Called the “perfect storage tool” by Food & Wine, the beautiful piece of kit is part of a collaboration between an award-winning chef, an artisan blacksmith and some outdoor gear craftsmen.
“Durability, balance and comfort” were the three key attributes that chef Chris Hastings (Hot and Hot Fish Club and OvenBird) looked to incorporate in the leather knife roll, and working together with Radcliffe Menge, the founder of Tom Beckbe, Alabama-based outdoor apparel company, they came up with the perfect piece of gear for professional chefs.
It comes in a full-grain vegetable tanned leather that is durable and elegant, and it is functional with space for 18 knives and eight additional pieces of hardware. Adjustable shoulder straps make this high quality roll bag comfortable and ergonomic.
The key feature of the knife roll is that it is balanced – knives are placed on both sides so the blades cross over one another in opposing pockets. A three-part interior flap system and two exterior belts make sure knives are secure.If you want to fill up your new leather knife roll with a set of equally good-looking knives - and have US$2,499 to spare - check out the limited edition chef knives also available on their website. Hastings and Menge teamed up with Will Manning, the blacksmith of Tennessee knife brand Heartwood Forge, who created the set that includes three knives - an elongated paring knife, a traditional chef’s knife and a cleaver-like knife that Menge calls the Butcher’s Haste.
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.

APPLICATIONS FOR OUR SLITTER BLADES
Our slitter blades can slit a wide range of materials, including:
Paper: A slitting blade can create slits and perforations in paper for a variety of purposes. For example, a toothed slitter blade can create a tear-off line for tear-away paper products.
Corrugated products: Corrugated products such as fiberboard and cardboard need high-quality blades for the best cutting results. Our expertly made slitting knives can create slits in these materials while keeping their edge.
Food and meats: Slitting knives can slice and score a variety of food products. We can develop custom blades for applications like meat slicing and processing.
Foil and film: Our precision slitting blades have the sharpness needed to smoothly slit foil. You can also request a custom blade for slitting other delicate materials like film.
Textiles: Fabric requires a sturdy blade that retains its edge throughout regular cutting operations. Our team develops custom slitting blades for textiles that achieve the cuts you need.
Plastics: We can design slitting knives suitable for plastics of various thicknesses and compositions. Their sharpness and durability allow you to work with a wide range of synthetic materials.
This list includes just a few of the possible applications for slitting knives. Thanks to our versatile capabilities, you can specify a slitting blade design for a variety of uses.
Long blade knives
In this article, we will introduce you to knives that have a blade length of at least 20 centimetres. It is obvious that long blades are particularly well-suited to larger ingre-dients, but these knives excel in different areas too, as you will find out:
Super Slicer: the cut-anything knife
There are some ingredients that demand a truly exceptional knife: the tough skin of a pineapple, for example, or the stalk of an artichoke. And the Super Slicer can easily handle both: the convex, outwardly shaped serrations of the blade ensure pow-erful and clean cuts - even with very fibrous, tough foods.
Salmon knife: sharp and flexible
Granted, there isn’t always a suitable knife for every possible situation. But, if you have a whole salmon in front of you, or at least half of one, you'll love this blade. The Salmon knife is very long, sharp and flexible, so you don't tear the fine flesh of the fish and you can cut wafer-thin slices.
Ham knife: also suitable as a carving knife
Of course we have the right speciality knife in our range when it comes to smaller hams. Thanks to its long, narrow blade, the Ham knife is also suitable as a carving knife, as you can use it to carve up roasts, hams or poultry – whether raw or cooked – very efficiently.
How to choose the suitable material for cutting knife blade of industrial shredders
Shredder blade is a kind of cutter that is equipped on industrial shredder or granulator. They are machines for crushing waste materials like rubber, tires, wood, paper, polymers, plastic, textiles and so forth. As we all know, industrial waste shredders are playing a critical role in the recycling industry. For one thing, they can save a lot of storage space. Data indicates a shredder can reduce the total volume of processed industrial waste by 30%-50% on average. For another thing, shredders optimize the value of industrial wastes by forming them into granule reaching a recyclable level.
As space is limited, we only pay attention to the cutter part of a shredder. Many variables to affect shredder cutter’s efficiency, such as cutting angle, numbers of knives, cutting velocity, chip load, etc. Above all, A primary factor is If the cutter material is suitable to deal with the industrial waste. That’s always the first thing on your concern.
Materials of shredder cutter out there vary, so do the materials of industrial waste, too.
Common trash wood includes cardboard, paper, solid wood, and plywood board. For brittle wood, such as branches, twig, cardboard, SK5 is a practical and economical option. The steel is a kind of carbon tool steel with nice resistance to wear, but poor plasticity and hardenability. SK5 is often used to make woodworking knives, and sample-sized dies. Its performance is not super outstanding, which results in its cheaper price, compared with other types of wood-processed steels.
However, for high-strength trash wood, such as stumps, plywood boards, and discarded furniture, SK5 is not competent. We’d turn to use high manganese steel, accordingly. High manganese steel is generally used to make a smashing hammer in mining and architecture industry. Its metal hardened depth can reach 10mm-20mm and remain as hard as HB500-550. When working at a high torque, the manganese steel will not be easily deformed or even broken like SK5. In addition to this, the high manganese steel is more affordable, compared with other alloy carbon steel.
2.For shredding plastic
In the plastic industry collectors and recyclers started their business pretty late compared to areas of scrap wood and paper&cardboard. Trash plastic can be generally a huge blend with at least the same amount of possible additives and fillers. They contain not only lower grade plastic but also high-value ones. Thus we need to recognize which type of plastic is in the input mixture.
The principle of the crusher blade is to use a set of running knives to smash the target (pulverized material). When the target (pulverized material) is broken by the crusher blade, the blade is gradually worn out.
There are many applications at different industries which are using crusher knives . Therefore, Jiuli Knives will base on the client's application to select the right material to produce the crusher blade, and it will influence the wear resistance and toughness of the crusher knife to be optimized, the product life of the blade to be increased, the pulverizing ability to be maximized and the thickness of the pulverized powder is uniform.
The slitter rewinder blades are mainly applied to rewinders for slitting of tissue paper. The quality of rewinder blades directly affect the production quality and efficiency. Seton developed circular tungsten carbide and inlay carbide rewinder blades to improve customers' use effect and blades' service life.
As for the selection of cutting tool materials, we can make recommendation according to customers' cutting materials, so as to ensure that customers can use the appropriate knives during production. The common specifications of blades may be not suitable for your machines, and if needed, please send us the samples or drawings. We will manufacture strictly in accordance with the design precision.
