A client sent a inquiry to us few days ago, however, there is some communication problems between us about the bevel type.

  A client sent a inquiry to us few days ago, however, there is some communication problems between us about the bevel type.

  Here is the useful terminology about the bevel type.

  Single sided bevels

  From left to right.

  Single Bevel – There is one angle making up the cutting edge. These can be applied in straight blades and circular blades.

  Back Chisel - This is where you have a small and often very steep angle on the back of the cutting edge. These can sometimes be on blades that have the back edge running against an anvil, this reduces chipping of both the cutting blade and anvil.

  Front Chisel - This is when the small steep angle is placed on the same face as the main bevel. A chisel will prevent chipping and increase cutting life. There will cause less friction with the roll.

  Double bevels

  From left to right.

  Double Bevel - When there is a cutting edge on both sides of the blade, typically these will both be the same length and angle.

  Chiseled Double Bevel - The same as a front chisel but the same on the front face and back face of the blade. Once again this is done to reduce chipping and increase life of the blade.

  Land - Where there is a small often up to 1mm flat top at the end of the cutting edge. This is mainly used when the blades does not actually cut but is used in a lifting or separating task. A land can also be used on single bevels as well.
