What are punch knives?

A punch knife is a type of multipurpose knife that sailors traditionally use. It typically had a wooden handle and a metal blade that was sharpened on both sides. The blade was often serrated so that it could be used for sawing. The knife could also be used for striking, as the name suggests.

Punch knives are made with various tip styles, each designed for a specific material or type of hole. Some common tip styles include round, oblong, and hexagonal. The right tip style depends on the material being punched and the size and shape of the desired hole.

Punch knives are used in various automotive, manufacturing, and construction industries. They are a staple in any workshop where metal needs to be worked. In the industry, punch knives are mounted on a trigger to punch a hole in the cut materials.

Advantages of using punch knives

There are many advantages of using punch knives:

  • Stronger and more durable:
    Punch knives are strong and can cut through rigid materials like leather and Ned. 

  • Sharpness:
    They are also very sharp and can cut delicate materials like paper and cloth.

  • Versatility:
    They can be used for various tasks, including carving, slicing, and dicing.

How punch knives are manufactured?

  • Cutting:
    Punch knives are manufactured in a variety of ways. Some companies use stamping machines to cut the metal, while others use laser cutting or wire EDM. The most common method is to stamp the metal with dies.

  • Heating:
    Once the metal is cut, the next step is to heat-treating the metal. This step is essential, as it hardens the metal and makes it more durable.

  • Sharpening:
    Next, the knife is sharpened to remove any imperfections. And it undergoes a grinding process to refine and make it even sharper. 

  • Coating:
    The knife can be coated with chromium and tungsten to help improve resistance to wear or corrosion.
