We know that you need high quality, quick service, all at an economical price.

American Cutting Edge blades are the sharpest cutting instruments in the world and it is important to give not only good quality but also consistent quality. Some companies can make a small quantity of blades correctly but we pride ourselves on having the processes that enable us to make good quality razor blades while producing tens of thousands of pieces. This makes it possible to keep prices low, something imperative these days. What blades do you need? We make: industrial hand knives, machine knives, professional contracting tools or a blade to go in your OEM product; what else?
Our company is specially set up to manufacture high quality blades and much of our equipment is CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled). While we use strip grinders to make blades more economically, we also have standard machine knife grinders so we can make virtually any blade. We also have ownership in factories in lower cost countries that enable us to even do hand grinding on blades for an economical price.
We presently make knives and blades from: Solid Tungsten Carbide, Zirconium Ceramics, 300 and 400 series Stainless Steel, 1095 Carbon Steel, M42 High Speed Steel and other materials. We also apply coatings such as Tin, TiC and Boron Carbide. We have an in-house heat-treating company with metallurgical assistance and thus really know what we are doing at this important step in the manufacturing process. After material selection and final grinding of the edge, nothing is more important to blade life than proper heat-treating!
While working with us, you can often get low quantities of blades made at fair costs. To do this we utilize our in-house wire EDM and laser machines to keep the costs low. This is an excellent way to test your designs! We know we cannot just make a blade to meet specifications; we also must satisfy our customers. We are there to help you along every step of the way, including design assistance.
We have literally millions of blades in stock and often can find the special razor blade you need in our inventory. This also enables us to ship almost every order the same day we receive it.
