Please contact Eastman’s customer service team for a comprehensive list of high quality blades, parts and accessories, machined with specific tolerances available to maintain reliable performance levels.

Genuine Eastman Blades

Genuine Eastman blades are the finest in the world. Each blade features an exclusive heat tempering process which hardens the blade’s cutting area while maintaining flexibility in the blade’s tang. With a genuine Eastman blade, you have precision tolerances and superior wear characteristics – you sharpen less frequently and cut more fabric than with any other blade. Every Eastman blade is precisely machined to hold critical tolerances of plus or minus .001 inches. The poor quality and inconsistent thickness of generic blades accelerate the wear and tear on critical parts like the slides, crosshead and guides. A genuine Eastman blade offers decreased maintenance costs, less down time, longer blade life and consistent, quality cuts. Eastman blades are stamped “genuine” right on the blade. Don’t be fooled by counterfeit blades!

Abrasive Belts – Straight Knives

Eastman’s four abrasive belt grits offer an edge for every fabric. For increased efficiency, Eastman offers four different edges as produced by four different abrasive belts. These belt grits are available in convenient color-coded boxes for easy identification.

  • Fine Edge – slices through knitted, loosely woven or high-pile fabrics
  • Medium Edge – typically used for synthetics, cottons light woolens and similar materials
  • Coarse Edge – for heavier weight variations of cotton, woolens, aramid and other industrial materials
  • Rough Edge – saws through heavy denim, coated fabrics, treated canvas and simulated leathers.

Round Knife Blades

Eastman round knife blades are designed for all of Eastman’s rotary shears, end cutters, specialty and round knife machines. There are several sizes and styles available to fit any cutting application. Alternative shapes for round blades:

  • Octagonal / Hexagonal / Semi-Square – an alternative to scissors-style cutting to chop rather than shear
  • Single or Double Bevel – round blades have either a single or double beveled edge, configured for either shearing or slicing


For round knives and rotary shears: Four different grits of sharpening stone are available for Eastman’s round knife cutting machines and can be adjusted so that ease and accuracy of cutting is improved and sharpening frequency decreased.

  • Extra Fine – 220 grit
  • Fine – 180 grit
  • Medium – 150 grit
  • Regular – 120 grit
