Mill knives or mill blades are utilized during fabrication of rubber sheets, which are used in the final assembly phase of products like tires and hoses. Mill Blades are made of higher-grade tool steel, and are very sharp, which enables a long run life. Generally M-2 or higher grades of high speed tool steel is used in creating a durable mill knife. Designers use many shapes and sizes of mill knives to affect their desired cuts. It is important that the cutting edges are very sharp and durable in cutting of these very abrasive materials.
