If you are trying to justify a
, something SE. I'm in the middle of doing some reno work on a rental property and had to cut some carpet samples for paint matching and I used my Rescue 93mm on some, and my PE Delica 4 on others. The SE won hands down
It wasn't that the PE one didn't get the job done, it did fine, but the Rescue just did it better. Didn't cut enough to get a feel for how long the edge would go - I only cut a few feet with each, but that larger blade........
I only needed some small pieces, but I found a couple of chunks of larger carpet in the crawlspace and couldn't resist monkeying around a bit
When I was talking with Rowland at Target Knives, the other side line he has is furniture upholstery/restoration and he mentioned that using a good folder was much cheaper in the long run than those utility knives - he said him and his crew were going thru blades like crazy cutting uphostery cloth (carpet would be even more abrasive). One of the guys on my 8-ball team is is a carpet salesman - he uses a Superknife clone (Canadian Tire version), and he mentioned that he's constantly swapping out blades, typically a couple a week, which would be 4 edges. And he's just cutting samples for customers
Hope this helps - gord
