Heusch launch stainless steel fleshing blade

20 January 2012

Heusch from Germany are one of the worlds leading suppliers of fleshing and shaving knives. They have launched Excalibur, the world’s 1st stainless steel fleshing blade.

According to Managing Director, Thomas Schaefer, Excalibur will set a new benchmark for the high-performance fleshing of hides and skins.

Hanns-Peter Spaniol, Heusch Director Technology confirmed: ‘This product will stay unrivalled in the market as we apply a new production process, which we registered for a patent.’

Prior to Excalibur it was considered impossible to forge a stainless steel blade with good characteristics for hardness and flexibility. It has been either corrosion-free or hard and flexible.

The rust-proofed Excalibur is not compromised with regards to hardness and flexibility. Measurements confirmed a hardness of 62 Rockwell. Tests at the laboratories of the RWTH Aachen recorded a flexibility factor of 1.25. Both values underline the high performance of the new stainless steel blade.

Jochen Hall, Sales Director explains: ‘The new blades will have up to 30% longer durability. This will improve productivity and decrease costs for re-blading.’

With the new technology Heusch are able to supply customers’ blades, which will not leave rust marks on skins and hides.
