ENTO started making knives about 1967. Our standard types shown here have undergone a number of changes along the way and we have been used in most major supermarkets in Australia since then. The knife is a simple 2 part design with a reversible blade. The blade protrusion is minimal to only cut through the cardboard and so minimise stock damage. In an effort to reduce injuries and further reduce stock damage, a modification was made to the blade where the corners were rounded. This less aggressive corner has become by far the most popular although many stores still prefer the traditional square corner style. The locating point for the blade is different to give the same depth of cut, so for ease of identification the knives are coloured differently - silver being the colour to suit the square corner blade and gold for the round cornered blade.

With the advent of plastic shrink wrap around some products, one modification which was made was to produce a different inner piece for the knife. This has a hook which can be used to drag the plastic away from the product and across the blade and so safely cut the plastic film without damage to stock. this tool uses either of the standard blades which fit the carton knives shown above.

XE/018 - Plastic Film Slitter


When thinner plastic film or stretch wrap is used, this tends to clog the blade in the ENTO Film Slitter. To overcome this, the red plastic film slitter shown on the right can be used. This tool uses an industrial ejector blade XE/018 - B.



Ento now supply and sell packets of one hundred blade refills for their carton knives. Blades come in two types square edged or rounded edge.

WARNING: The Blades used in the knives are extremely sharp and should be handled with care, both in use and when changing blades. Knives should be stored in the closed position for safety.
