• Processing whole logs or slabs and end blocks, the Cortex knife system will provide the chip quality and knife life needed to maximize the value of the raw material. Solid holder systems provide simple conversions with only a holder, clamp, and the Cortex knife – significantly reducing maintenance. The Cortex knife is the lowest cost reversible knife system on the market and provides extended knife life through superior metallurgy.


Cortex is the ideal knife system for processing waste wood in sawmills. The reduced width clamp allows Cortex to optimize the feeding angle for all types of raw material and prevent clogging of the disc. Slabs, lilly pads, trim blocks - Cortex has the versatility to optimize the geometry for all raw material.
portable chipping
In-Woods chipping, also known as portable chipping, is an ideal application for the Cortex knife system. Knife costs less than $.10 / ton with Cortex is common among in woods chipping applications. Combined with the Cortex honer, the system allows contractors to focus on production and making money.
Large 16 knife disc chippers for pulp mills need long knife life and reduced operating cost. Cortex offers full conversions or ‘price per ton’ options with no upfront capital cost. Versatility with geometry helps optimize chip quality throughout the life of the wear parts and knives.
