BOISE Packaging--Wallula 2 Always be sure that blades are properly seated in knives and that knives are properly closed and/or fastened together before use.
BOISE Packaging--Wallula 3 A dull blade requires more force and is more likely to slip than a sharp one. Change the blade whenever it starts to tear instead of cut. Always use sharp blades.
