Cutting artificial grass? Here's our top 6 knives and cutting tools

Updated: Oct 1

Time is money, and these six knives will save the professional grass installer significant amounts of time, as well as giving a superior result compared to the standard cutting knives which many installers still use.





1. Henko 605 Speed Knife


The Speed Knife is designed for cutting off the woven edge of the artificial grass. This is done by turning over the edge of the artificial grass, so that the underside of the edge is exposed. Then a cut is made in the underside of the woven edge. It gives better control over the cut because the knife is pushed through the material instead of pulling as with a normal knife.  Watch how to use a Speed Knife below...



2. Henko 604 Length Knife


The Length Knife ensures a straight and precise cut in the grass with the right amount of clearance between the two grass sections. This knife requires that the previous section be (pre) cut. Then this knife is used to make a cut with a small clearance. Watch how to use a Length Knife below...




3. Henko 606 Walk Knife


The Walk Knife is similar to the Speed Knife but it can be used in an upright walking position to make the first cut in artificial grass for the seam of the section that is in the correct position (to prepare for the use of the Henko Length Knife). It gives a much higher productivity than making the cut in a kneeling down position with an ordinary knife as the cut is made while walking. Watch how to use a Walk Knife below...





4. Henko 662 Loop Pile Cutter


The Loop Pile Cutter is designed for cutting artificial grass where the grass runs up to an edge, e.g. kerb, wall or fence. The knife is pushed along using the edge it is pushed against as a guide, giving a clean cut which follows the contours of the edge you are following.  It can also be used for cutting detailed patterns.

5. Henko 643 Line Cutter


The Line Cutter is designed for cutting circles and lines, e.g. the corner circle and the mid circle in a football field.  It cuts two lines in the grass at consistent spacing allowing a line to be inserted into the gap which no uneven edges.  Watch how to use the Line Cutter below...






6. Henko 665 Circle Cutter


The stainless steel Henko Circle Cutter is designed for cutting circles such as the center spot and the penalty spot on football fields. This Circle Cutter is easy to adjust and handle, and can also be used for landscaping purposes.
