Swann Morton and Stanley Knife Blades Help Design and Architecture Students Excel

With the pressure of student life a constant for students; it is essential to take every measure possible to make life easier. Tight deadlines, late nights and spells of isolated work are harsh realities for many students; particularly those taking courses that revolve around design. For them; achieving the highest standards of accuracy in their work will be the difference between success and failure on their courses.

If you are one of those people; you can ensure that you are taking this seriously by choosing Swann Morton and Stanley knife blades as your go-to cutting tools. Taking such a decision will pay dividends; across a number of different scenarios. One such example would be an architecture student making a scale model to visualize an idea. The subsequent quality of that model will only be as good as the cutting tools that you use to make it.

Understanding this; and taking the appropriate measures discussed; will ensure that you are showing an understanding of the importance of quality control in design. In the process, you will be giving yourself the best possible opportunity to achieve good grades.

Extremely Rewarding

Wasted time having to remanufacture models because they haven’t been cut accurately can be extremely demoralizing. Achieving precision first time is endlessly satisfying; and understanding that you can do this through purchasing the best cutting tools is invaluable.

If you are one of those students; showing that you are able to work to only the highest levels of accuracy – right from the initial stages of creation – could be the key contributing factor towards your idea’s success.

By taking ownership of the importance of attention to detail; you are also making your own life easier in the process. When dealing with the pressures of university life; taking such measures can be extremely rewarding.

Swann Morton Knife Providers Keep Sharp Eye on Bear Grylls Comments

Bear Grylls – the Chief Scout of the Scouting Association – and the man behind hit reality TV show ‘The Island’; has suggested the children should be encouraged to use knives from a young age. His suggestion has caused widespread controversy; as he told the Radio Times that kids need to learn “how to embrace and manage risk”; and that parents should assume more responsibility in the educating of these matters.

Grylls has enjoyed previous success through his global TV phenomenon ‘Bear Grylls: Born Survivor’ – a show which pits him against the most daunting environments the world has to offer; in order for him to teach viewers about how to manage survival situations. The stir his latest interview caused, resulted in the national press – including The Telegraph and The Independent – picking up the story.

Appropriate Constraints for Knives

His popularity throughout this country and beyond ensures that any comments he does choose to make will be analyzed in kind. His gung-ho style and laid back attitude have been part of the reason he has been such a success story; but his latest comments could have landed him in hot water.

One of the standout quotes from those latest comments included Grylls suggestion that handling a knife as a child could be ‘empowering’; if done under the appropriate constraints: “Sometimes in life we get cut,” he was quoted as saying. “My six-year-old recently cut himself on a knife, and came in with blood pouring everywhere, but, you know what? He’s not cut himself again. He learned how to handle a knife.”

This has been considered by a lot of the media to be an insensitive view on the issue of allowing children to possess knives. Grylls has also said, however, that it is essential that knives are treated with the utmost respect and that children are taught how to use them properly: “When I say to budding adventurers, ‘Listen – a blunt penknife is a dangerous knife. Make sure it’s really sharp’ – the kids’ faces light up. Like all kids, they want a mega-sharp penknife – great, but teach them to respect it and use it properly,” he said.

Branded Knives From Swann Morton

The topic is certainly up for debate; but we at Knife Point are glad to simply stick to delivering the best possible knives for both new and existing customers. As a company; we deliver both our own specifically-tailored knife blades; and also branded knives from established industry businesses such as Swann Morton.

The key is our experience. We have been leaders of knife production in the industry for decades; and we work tirelessly to deliver only the highest levels of customer satisfaction. We achieve this through the application of our time and dedication; ensuring that customers come to us for their knife needs time and time again.

Theft of WW1 Memorabilia Interests Manufacturers of Trimming Knife Blades

At Knife-Point; news related to the manufacture of knives is always of interest to us. With 30 years of industry experience – and historical roots within the production of knives spanning decades – we are always amazed to see some of the stories that crop up surrounding knife production.

In this vein; it recently came to our attention that a historical WW1 memorabilia knife was stolen from a Canvey museum; in Western Esplanade. The incident occurred on the morning of 5th May – the last day of the most recent bank holiday. The item concerned is a trench dagger – or trench knife – and was taken from one of the museum’s display cases.

Knife Production in the Past

The knife is a fantastic example of past knife production; with such different constraints placed on the manufacture of it than ones that would be applied to present day products. Some characteristics of the ideals that went into producing it will remain true to this day though. Hard work and dedication to the craft – something that we at Knife-Point understand – are things that should always be applied within any walk of product design. They are the key essentials that enable us to deliver the high quality of products – such as our trimming knife blades – to our customers.

When you consider these aspects of knife manufacture; you can understand why the memorabilia knife that has been stolen is considered so valuable. A museum volunteer – Allan Reed – was quick to play up the significance of the incident; whilst PC Lisa-Ann Gore, of Essex police – told The Enquirer: “The museum would like to get the piece back as it is very important to them. It is also a weapon and we would like to get it back in safe hands. I would urge anyone with any information to contact me as soon as possible.”

Trimming Knife Blades

Such information may come from someone who has found themselves in a situation where the knife may have been offered as a sale; or alternatively, somebody who may have any information within relation to the theft. Police are continuing to investigate the incident.

At Knife-Point, we have a number of USP’s; including: our high quality products, excellent service, rapid deliveries and competitive pricing. We want to keep new customers for the long-term; as we become your go to business for knives – including our trimming knife blades.
