Our Standard & Quality

American Cutting Edge, a division of CB Manufacturing and Sales Co., Inc. has the objective of being a World Class Leader in Quality. We will provide products and services that meet or exceed our customers’ needs. To accomplish our objective, every employee has the responsibility to “do it right the first time” and contribute to continuous improvement in all we do.


The Tradition

Founded in 1965 by Charles Biehn Sr., our core value of taking care of you, The Customer, is still the driving force that allows us to succeed. With thanks to all our loyal customers, employees and suppliers; our unique idea of Real Customer Service is continuously being improved year after year…

We are “Easy To Do Business With” and “We are in the knife business so you don’t have to be”. Our Companies execute these two philosophies every day. How do we do this? We listen to you, we offer expert advice, and together we determine what is best for you. Then we deliver. Period.

In our world of custom and common blades, your goals become our goals. Delivering what is best for you is best for us. When we take care of you, The Customer, everything else will take care of itself.

Tell us what you need and consult with our staff of Blade Specialists. You’ll get nothing except our best effort to define and deliver The Best Blade Solution.
