The blade on this strong, die-cast metal, knife slides in and out of the handle. The blade is a strip thirteen sections. Removing a worn pointed end ~ by snapping it off ~ enables a fresh part of the blade to be used. A knurled screw at one end loosens a clamping mechanism which enables the blade to be moved out of the handle. It is then firmly locked into placed by finger-tightening the screw. This provides a very secure fixing of the blade, but takes a little longer to do than the lighter-weight knives.
When all 13 points are used up, a new strip can be easily loaded into the handle by removing the plastic cap at the blunt end. Discarded points must be kept separate from domestic waste, and disposed of in a "sharps" container.
Knives and blades that are as sharp as this may not be purchased by anyone under eighteen. By purchasing one of these knives from us you are confirming that you are legally allowed to do so. Carriage is extra ~ this knife can travel in the post as a "Large Letter".
