Waterjet cutting is perfect for knife making. Some traditionalists still believe its “cheating” but its really using the technology available to make the best blade with what you have, MRC Industries can cut any material you would like for your blade giving you a blank to shape to your profile.
Waterjet cutting doesn’t heat up the blade so no hardening will take place during the cut. We can also cut the rest of your blade components including scales from Micarta, Carbon fibre, G10, Phenolic and just about anything else.
So whether you’re Big players in the game like DB Blades or just a backyard hobbyist – We’ve got you covered!
