You must protect your health while working with knifemaking materials, such as metals, wood, synthetics and bone. 99% of these materials are harmful to your lungs. It is best to use a properly fitting respirator with quality filters to minimise the risks of inhaling these dust particles.

Masks and Filters are sold SEPARATELY so please add a mask and filters of your choice.

We offer a variety of 3M Personal Protective Equipment / PPE.

The 6000 Series maintenance-free, reusable respirator from 3M is the basic face piece we recommend when starting to build a complete mask. Like the other 3M filter masks we sell, it requires no extra parts to attach the filters or cartridges directly to the face piece. They attach with a simple 1/4 turn bayonet style fitting and requires no tools. The cartridges and filters are set low on the face piece to provide better visibility. We recommend the 3M – 2138 particulate filters to go with any of the masks. It is more than sufficient for knifemakers’ needs.

3M Personal Protective Equipment include essentials such as: 3M Respirator Masks / Particulate Filters / Vapour Cartridges.

It is essential to wear a quality respirator mask to minimise inhaling all the steel and composite particles & toxic vapours while making knives. Some wood species for instance are hazardous to the lungs with similar properties as asbestos.
