Routine production of good glass knives requires a reliable supply of high quality glass strips. ALKAR glass strips from Sweden are produced with great care to control quality. ALKAR's manufacturing process has long been recognised as the established standard worldwide -this glass has been supplied with every LKB Knife Maker for three decades.
ALKAR glass is made by the Pittsburgh glass process. The physical characteristics of this glass are uniform throughout. It is tougher and harder than glass made by other processes. Knives made with this glass are therefore more durable, with long lasting cutting edges needed for long ribbons of sections, thinner sections and sections free from artefacts. All glass strips are 400mm long and 25mm wide.
Additional freight cost to NZ is A$30.00 per box.

Note: Glass for ultramicrotomy glass knives (Alkar and LKB) was made in Sweden. Algy Persson was the supplier for several decades. He died of very old age a couple of years ago but we have now found another good source - unfortunately it's more expensive. For the new glass we are using the old catalogue number with an 'E' suffix.
