About Us:

Modern Specialties Factory in 1930

Since 1930, The Modern Specialties Company has manufactured outstanding industrial cutters, utility knives and blades for the construction industry and for opening corrugated boxes. A smaller company, we attribute our longevity to our emphasis on quality, service and customer satisfaction.

Our goal is the same as it was from the company's beginning in 1930: "To provide customers with quality products for the best value, along with an unconditional, unlimited, lifetime guarantee."

Modern Specialties' commitment to product excellence and outstanding service is long standing and well known. It is our guarantee of total customer satisfaction.
