At the ‘cutting-edge’ of industry
First Cut has had a long and successful history in the supply of cutting consumables. Since we produced our first bandsaw blade in 1960, First Cut has been at the forefront of blade technology. We are proud to be the leading supplier of cutting consumables in South Africa, thanks to our partnership with some of the best-known names in cutting tools. These include Starrett, Moore and Wright and Eclipse and together they bring the full range of consumables, including bandsaw blading, hacksaw blading, frames and a vast range of engineering tools to the South African market.
