Frequently Asked Questions

Knives make all types of work easier. It is especially important to have a sharp knife so that you can work quickly, efficiently and safely. Dull knife blades can be dangerous.

Knife Benefits

Knives allow you to cut through insulation without damaging or tearing it. A sharp knife makes your project faster and safer.

Efficient Cutting

A newer knife has a nice sharp blade that allows for faster, cleaner cutting. An insulation knife is designed specifically for cutting through insulation without ripping, tearing or otherwise damaging the product. When you use an insulation cutting knife, you’ll work faster and with less hand fatigue.

Durable and Safe

All of the knives that we sell at Service Partners are high quality products that are designed to last. With sharp blades, you will be safer as you make cuts in insulation. However, if your blade becomes dull and needs replacement, we can help. Service Partners also sells replacement blades.

Service Partners sells a wide variety of knives to fit your project needs. We have retractable utility knives, fixed blade knives, batt knives and replacement blades. Our batt knives come in 6 inch, 8 inch, and 8.75 inch styles. No matter the size or type of knife you need, Service Partners can help.

Depending on your project, you’ll want to select the right style and size of knife to fit your needs. Service Partners can help.

Utility Knives

Utility knives are a great tool to keep in your toolbelt at all times. Utility knives have many uses on a job site. Utility knives come in fixed and retractable blades. They can be used for every type of project, large or small. While utility knives can be smaller, they still can provide a lot of cutting power.

Batt Knives

When you are looking for an insulation cutting knife, batt knives are an excellent choice. Batt knives are fixed blades that come in 6 inch or 8 inch lengths. They make it easy to cut fiberglass batts without tearing and mangling the batt. If you use a batt knife with an Accusharp tool, you’ll keep the cutting blade smooth.

Scarfing Tool

A scarfing tool is used for removing both open-cell and closed-cell spray foam insulation from overfilled wall cavities. What was once a time-consuming job is now simple and easy. A scarfing tool is a great knife to have to increase your efficiency, productivity and profits.
