WE MAKE KNIVES.

Round knives, replacement knives, crinkle knives, flat knives and custom knives.
Focusing only on knives, AceCo Industrial Knives can deliver exceptional savings, quality and design to your knife needs. AceCo has been manufacturing knives for over 25 years, so we have the experience and research to create a knife to the customers' specifications or match an existing design.

Through the years AceCo has done extensive research in metallurgy and heat-treat processes. Concentrating on 400 series Stainless Steels, AceCo has set specific element parameters that have to be met to insure that the fabrication of each knife is repeatable and will uphold the highest quality. Stainless Steels are iron-based alloys that contain a minimum of 10.5% chromium. Chromium is the element that increases corrosion resistance due to its oxidizing action on the surface of the metal. Other elements are added at specified parameters to create alloys with differing properties applicable for their specific utility. Carbon is added for the mechanical properties that decide hardness and strength through heat treat.

The grinding machines at AceCo are custom made, concentrating on keeping the grinding operation cool, avoiding burning the metal causing the blade to lose its hardness and strength characteristics. Feed rates, flood cooling and abrasive size are all controlled to insure a proper grind.

Coupled with our grinding, AceCo also has CNC turning, milling and jet machining capabilities. These machines are used for high precision knife manufacturing and for various knife holders.
