Machine Knives

Quality UK Manufactured Machine Knives

Combining almost two centuries of traditional skill with advanced precision technologies, Fernite of Sheffield manufactures the world’s finest machine knives, blades and cutters. Fernite was established in 1832, now with 190 years of history in the Sheffield knife industry.

We use hand-picked, accredited European steel and the very best technology to maintain Fernite’s reputation as the UK’s preeminent manufacturer of machine knives. All our machine knives are manufactured in our own plant in Sheffield, England.

Our machine knives reflect not only our extensive years of experience, but the attention to detail and latest technology that we invest in our work.

We know that one of the biggest problems in using knives in a factory is longevity and durability. When creating machine knives, we create blades to last, so that your efficiency is not compromised. You can be confident that a Fernite of Sheffield blade is the very best blade you can buy.

Fast, Reliable Delivery

Fast, reliable delivery is also critical to our customers. We manufacture all our products onsite in our Sheffield factory. We also utilise our extensive steel stockholding facility to supply our process. Many competitors manufacture in the cheap economies and do not stock materials, so for them, reliable delivery can be a problem. On the contrary, Fernite offers reliable, short lead times and on-time delivery.

We produce knives for a variety of applications and needs. As well as straight and toothed machine knives, we also produce a wide range of bespoke machine knife solutions to solve our customers’ cutting problems. We manufacture blades with a variety of edges such as toothed, bevelled, angled, circular and straight. We tailor every aspect of the blade to your material and application.

Our knives are widely used across the world in many industries, including in food, textiles, tobacco, rubber, paper, plastics and building materials. With our long and wide-ranging experience in  machine knife production, we can identify the exact blades you need to get the very best out of your machinery. We create machine knives to last, whether for cutting soft materials or much harder substances.
