OLFA’s New Stainless Steel SK-14 Blends Safety and Functionality

Maintaining a functional yet safe working environment is already tough, so when it came to creating a knife for the food-processing world that exceeds safety demands and is highly functional, OLFA had its work cut out.

Enter the new OLFA® SK-14 Rounded-Tip Stainless Steel Knife, a knife specifically designed to rise to the challenge.

The SK-14 is the only 100 percent stainless steel knife on the market today, making it durable, as well as a knife that gets noticed. The steel body makes the tool metal detectable – a vitally important feature for food safety professionals who work in facilities where food is prepared, packaged and then run through a metal detector before shipment.

Safety First

  • Metal detectable: The ONLY 100 percent stainless steel knife on the market today
  • Industry approved: National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certified
  • Slip resistant: Notches at base of knife improve grip and control

Functional Design

  • Sanitary: Open-blade channel is easy to clean
  • Glove-on use: Self-retracting blade easier to reveal with wider blade actuator
  • Reduces broken-blade contamination: Blade features rounded tip to reduce tip snaps

“We spent years listening to users and studying what features a food-processing knife would need to meet safety demands, and the SK-14 checks all the boxes,” says OLFA Brand Manager Cassie Donnelly. “Not only is the tool metal detectable, but it’s also certified by the National Sanitation Foundation, and packs the industry’s sharpest OLFA blade for the longest cutting life.”

The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certification is a hallmark to the SK-14’s simple design. The knife’s open-blade channel is easy to clean, making it a sanitary knife choice for a food-processing environment.

That’s combined with the tool’s slip-resistant handle and improved blade actuator. The body of the knife includes notches at the base to help improve grip and control, while the wider blade actuator lets users reveal the self-retracting blade easily, even with gloves on.

The SK-14’s 100 percent stainless steel OLFA blade also features a rounded tip, which reduces potential contamination from broken blade tips.
