The Leader in Shear Blades
Since 1933

Since 1933 ASKO has been manufacturing and supplying the highest quality shear blades to the scrap, demolition and recycling industries. ASKO offers one of the largest in-stock inventories of replacement and specialty blades and ASKO’s worldwide manufacturing facilities produce and deliver specialty blades to OEMs, Co-ops and end users everywhere on the globe.

With our Blades Direct™ Program, our customers can tap our huge inventory of blades from one source, with one phone call and one easy transaction. And for items not in stock, ASKO can custom manufacture any blade.

Because YOU asked for it

As the needs of our users change - ASKO responds. Responding to an industry-wide customer survey, ASKO has designed the Blades Direct™ Program to satisfy the growing needs of end-users with affordable and quickly available new and replacement blades.

Direct from ASKO to your shear

Blades Direct™ takes the lag time out of blade availability by anticipating your blade needs and letting you buy directly from the manufacturer. What used to take weeks to process due to inventory lag and 3rd party order processing time can now be handled more effectively.

It pays to shop DIRECT

Buying direct from ASKO will make your operations manager happy with volume purchasing discounts. It’s simple — when you order from the manufacturer, buying more blades in a year means — bigger discounts.

Guaranteed inventory of replacement blades

When you sign up for Blades Direct™, ASKO keeps track of what knives you need and what machines you’re using. We know which blades to make months before you need them so when you do place a quick order, we have your blade in stock and ready to go.


24-Hour Rapid Response™ Time

With Blades Direct™, a personal sales representative will return your request, RFQ or call within 24 hours GUARANTEED, usually sooner. We know there’s nothing more frustrating than waiting for a reply on a tool or part you need to run your business. When you talk directly to the manufacturer via Blades Direct™, you’re reducing costly down time.
