How to price knives

  • Calculate the length of steel.  For a top or bottom knife, take the width of the moulding, add 1″ for axial constant over length and multiply by the number of knives.  For a side knife, take the thickness of the moulding, then follow the same procedure.
  • Multiply the total length of steel by the appropriate price per inch.  This is determined by the maximum depth of cut required to make the moulding.
  • Add the set up and template costs.
