Cardinal Round Knives – Proudly Crafted in the USA

Eastman Cardinal® round knives are proudly manufactured in the USA.
Eastman recently invested in the Buffalo, New York production facility to increase capacity and decrease lead-times. Lead-times for most round knife cutters is approximately 5-7 business days. The manufacturing facility enhancements have also increased the quality and precision of this equipment, especially in terms of the motor, and matching of gears and rotor shaft.
These cutters are so versatile they can be used as stand-alone or integrated with other production equipment. Commonly used to cut straight lines or large radius curves, Eastman round knives are a combination of power and ease of use. The round knives are designed for a wide range of applications – from the softest silks to the toughest industrial fabrics. With five different blade sizes, various horsepower ratings and custom engineered gear ratios, the round knife is unsurpassed for straight cuts.
