    Richard Keenan | Parkside Wondai | QLD

    The results we are achieving from using Accurate’s knife steel are very impressive. We are getting close to three days production before sharpening our solid carbide knife steel at an average of 30,000 linear meters per day.

    We have a good combination going here, working together constantly trying to better our process to achieve better product finish and running life from our knife steel.

    We’ve been dealing with Accurate for a bit over a year and it’s always very easy. All the team is very informative and helpful.

    Accurate really knows their business, every time they have suggested we try tweaking something we have seen great results.

    This knife steel is the best-balanced knife steel I’ve dealt with. I’ve been timber machining for 17 years now and Accurate provides the best knives I’ve ever used! We’re using less knife steel now and we don’t have to waste time balancing knives when we get them because we know they will be perfect.
