VERONA, Va., Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Personna, the world's leading manufacturer of carpet blades and bladed tools, has introduced a new Personna Flip Lock™ Carpet Knife.
Recognized as the leader in carpet blades and bladed tools, Personna's product line pushes the boundaries of carpet cutting to new heights. Living up to a 135-year tradition of quality and innovation, this new Flip Lock™ Carpet Knife provides users with a unique design that reduces carpet cutting time in half. With its patented design, the Personna Flip Lock™ Carpet Knife allows the user to change the position of the head of the knife to utilize both edges of the carpet blade. This knife is also safer than other traditional carpet knives, since blade handling is reduced by 50%.
"Our new Flip Lock™ Carpet Knife is a simple, easy to use solution for today's carpet installers. Rather than flipping blades over to use multiple edges, you just flip and lock the head of this knife in position. You can get back to cutting right away. No blade flipping or handling of sharp blades. Just flip and go," said Bob Senesac, Director of Marketing for Personna's Industrial/Professional Division. "The ergonomic design, on board blade storage and solid construction set this knife apart from anything else in the marketplace."
According to Mr. Senesac, the innovations the company has slated for 2014 will be focused on blade improvements and ongoing "new news" for the carpet installation market.
"We're going to continue to provide carpet installers with the absolute best products available to help them be more productive, safer and better able to work with today's carpets. End users have come to expect that from us and we will continue to deliver blade and bladed products that help them perform," Mr. Senesac said.
Personna is one of the largest producers of professional, medical, and industrial blades with manufacturing facilities in North America. The company's launch of the new Flip Lock™ Carpet Knife comes on the heels of the launch of Personna ArmorEdge™ Carpet Blades and the launch of the White Lightning™ Aluminum Fixed Blade Carpet Knife in August.
