XL Premium Silver Case Studies / User Experiences
Paul Finch NICF Master Fitter
"Its razor sharp cutting edge provides an improved quality feel when cutting. The blades glide through carpet with precision and ease allowing you to apply less force reducing squashing and pile distortion for a better seam/joint finish. With a sharper blade edge you get a smoother cut that requires less effort reducing strain and providing more control when freehand cutting and scoring allowing you to make longer, more accurate even cuts without having to stop and restart. Overall you can get the job done quicker and to a superior standard."
David Russell Curriculum Manager at CP Assessments
"You can immediately feel the difference between the standard blades and the XL Premium Silver", David was extremely impressed with the high quality of these blades and is an advocate for them staying ‘sharper for longer’ making light work of fitting carpet on 32 Winders/Stairs where he used 1 x XL Premium Silver blade in comparison to usually dulling anything up to 10 standard conventional blades. With fewer blade changes minimising tool downtime he was able to complete the job more efficiently.
Tool TesterA tool tester found that when fitting out a Christian Louboutin shop in London with carpet that our XL Premium Silver blades were incredible and where he would have normally blunted 10 blades he only dulled 2 of the XL Premium Silver.

XL Premium Silver Q&A
- Hi I am a floor layer and just wanted to know. On what materials will I most benefit using your XL Premium Silver blades?
The XL Premium Silver blades are ideal for use when you want to achieve a superior finish to your work. These blades stay sharper for longer making it easier to cut through various materials.

- Are your XL Premium Blades comparable to what our customers often refer to as the German Blades?
Thank you very much for your question regarding our XL Premium Range. The simple answer to your question is yes.
The German Blades you refer to are manufactured from a 1.25% Carbon Steel whereas the UK Industry standard is a 1% Carbon Steel. Our innovative XL Premium Silver & Gold range has been designed, developed and manufactured using a high quality premium 1.25% Carbon Steel.
The only major difference other than the manufacturing location is that here at Jewel, we surface finish all of our XL Premium products which enhances the blades slip factor reducing the amount of friction generated thus enabling the blades to retain a sharper cutting edge for longer.
