What makes HQ band knives so special?

Our HQ band knives are the perfect upgrade for your foam cutting machine! Compared to standard quality knives, they not only feature more durable materials, but also the smallest possible tolerances. The reason: During production, we also machine the surface of the raw material, thereby relieving tension from the blade. This results in a particularly smooth running blade. In addition, we offer you maximum transparency in production.
