All HDS-Sawmill knives supplied are the BasicCut type. For special or particularly abrasive conditions we have four additional options which can also be combined.

Use our “SoWa Sawmill Optimised Tool Design” for sawmill knives “tailored” to your applications.


PitchCut style sawmill knives yield an absolutely perfect cut; with this option the cutting angle of the primary chamfer is adapted to the various wood properties, and a pre-chamber and/or a counter chamfer will be added. PitchCut knives therefore feature the optimal cutting edge for a perfect cut.



A lot of things can often be even better. Here we pull out all the stops of constructional knife tuning and modify the geometry of the knife contours, and much more. With GeoCut style you receive a top class high-end knife customised for maximum cutting power in high performance applications.


ThermoCut - The Red Ones

We offer ThermoCut style sawmill knives for normal operating conditions, but also specifically for use in dirty wood or in severe climates such as processing very dry or frozen wood. The special heat treatment modifies the hardness, bending strength and fracture resistance for extreme conditions.

Recognizable are our ThermoCut by their reddish discoloration!

Our particularly robust SteelCut style sawmill knives provide an extra plus in terms of service life to the next sharpening cycle and the entire life of the knife. Here we use quite special heavy duty, premium quality chromium Steels or wear-resistant tipped cutting edges. SteelCut knives are particularly tough, which pays in the long run.
