Knives and blades The Kinetic Co. Inc., has a long history of providing the highest quality industrial knives to the paper, film and foil industries. Our company was founded in 1948 because the industry needed better knives than the ones that were available in the marketplace at that time. Kinetic was the first manufacturer to apply advanced, high-speed steels to improve the performance of knives in these industries. As industry technology has progressed, so have Kinetic industrial knives. Today, our material expertise is the best in the knife industry. Our on-staff knife experts match the right knife material to your application. Then, we provide an uncompromising heat-treating and finishing process that results in consistent, accurate knives that provide high productivity and cost-effective performance. Kinetic has expanded our product offering allowing us to provide more solutions for tissue, towel, napkin, sanitary, non-woven, wipes, packaging, and wrapping applications. We now offer rolls – both new and repairs or recoats.
