Why do knife technology and design matter to your business?

What’s so special about ASKO’s materials and design?

Ask ASKO: Why do knife technology and design matter to your business? The way a knife is designed and manufactured has a lot to do with how it performs in extreme conditions and even in routine day-to-day use. High-quality engineering and proprietary material grades result in knives that perform appropriately for your application.

ASKO has always produced its blades from the finest quality wrought (rolled or forged) tool steels, designed by our own in-house metallurgical staff. ASKO has never produced blades from castings, a sub par product that can fail and shut you down.

Ask ASKO: What’s so special about ASKO’s materials and design? ASKO is a pioneer in the development of improved grades for scrap shear blades; our Titan II scrap shear blade is the industry leader for performance in both toughness and wear resistance. The tool steels used in ASKO scrap yard knives are designed from the very start for one purpose—the demanding needs of the scrap metal, demolition and waste recycling industries.

ASKO strictly controls the chemistry of our steel grades, has them melted in heat lot quantities, and manufactures its blades from scratch. We produce scrap shear blades and perform heat treatment in our own manufacturing plant in the USA. ASKO is certified to ISO 9001-2000 and scrupulously maintains quality control over the heat treatment of blades and the machining and grinding processes, ensuring each blade is the correct hardness and the correct dimension, every time. We’re so committed to a superior product, we created a special guarantee to cover it.
