Irwin Blue Blade

Irwin Industrial Tools, Huntersville, N.C., will showcase the Irwin Blue Blade, unbreakable under normal work conditions, officials claim. Auto glass technicians can cut out three    windshields using the bi-metal utility blade, as opposed to one using a traditional carbon blade. The flexible blade features a spring steel body to prevent breakage and a “high-speed” steel cutting edge that stays sharp longer, according to product literature. Utility knives also are available. Technicians can order the blades through the following distributors: Mygrant Glass Co., Hayward, Calif.; PPG Auto Glass, Pittsburgh; and ACI Distribution, Memphis.
