Hose, tube blades

Line of circular knives and blades and hand knives are engineered to cut strong materials including tough, wire-reinforced hydraulic hose. Unlike abrasive wheels, which hack a path through materials and generate heat, smoke, and debris that can contaminate hydraulic cutting systems, they slice cleanly and eliminate waste. Blades are precision ground for maximum cutting leverage and reduced binding. They come in many shapes and sizes and are available in “straight bevel” or “wavy scallop” edges.
