HS CITO Cutting Rules

HS CITO cutting rules offer you excellent value for money. All cutting rules in the HS CITO series are equipped with a hardened edge for premium cutting and longer life expectancy. HS CITO cutting rules have outstanding bendability; due to the deep decarburization of the body there are no cracks during the bending process.

HS CITO SuperBend

The well-balanced hardening technology can cope with even the smallest bending angle. The hardened edges allow excellent service life.

geschabte Schneide S

Drawn blade, standard

Standard version; features excellent bending characteristics and a precise line height

geschliffene Schneide GR

Ground blade GR

A sharper blade that produces clean and precise cut edges; suitable for thicker or tougher materials, e.g. plastics, rubber, laminates and coated materials; creates less cutting dust, lower friction reduces cutting pressure, excellent bending characteristics, rounded transition from blade to body.
