Blade & band storage

Blade and band storageIt is important that blades and bands are stored in proper containers. They should be stored in a way that protects the cutting edge of the knives. Blades and bands storage must also protect operators from possible injury.

Blades and bands must be stored in proper containers. Never place a blade where it could fall, as the normal reaction is to catch it with your hand.

Safety note: Always wear cut-resistant gloves when handling blades and bands.

Because blades and bands are very sharp, always use extreme caution. The protective coating on the blade and band edges is there for the protection of the edge, not the operator. Dull blades should be handled with as much care as sharp blades to prevent nicks and chips. Always store and ship the blades and bands in a container specially designed to protect the blades and bands from damage.
