Integrated Scoring Knife

Integrated Scoring Knife
The Integrated Scoring Knife (ISK) is the next evolution of the Disposable Knife System (DKS).
Combining the function of the cutting knives, counterknives, and scoring knives into a single, lightweight knife helps to reduce maintenance and improve strand quality while retaining the safety benefits that DKS offers.
