OLFA® premium utility knife blades are made of the finest quality tool grade steel. Each blade undergoes a special multi-step production process to ensure unparalleled sharpness and superior edge retention. This makes OLFA® blades virtually unmatched in their initial cutting power and edge retention.
OLFA® snap-off blades are ground, then specially honed for maximum cutting performance. Segments are angled to a precise 59° which complements the natural position the hand assumes when cutting. This precise angle helps prevent the blade from breaking during use. The cutting edge of OLFA® snap-off blades can be instantly and easily refreshed upwards of 13 times – simply snap off the dulled segment for a fresh edge. The snap-off blade also offers an advantage in material cost savings by providing up to 13 edges versus the two of traditional utility blades.
These heavy-duty blades can be used on construction materials such as drywall, linoleum, carpet, flooring, insulation, flexible conduit, roofing, and more. (LB-50B, #5016)
