                        DESCRIPTION
The Fish Series 200 has an ergonomically designed impact resistant body, with a
dual cutting feature.

Contoured to the hand, with a ‘nose’ that does not bend and expose the blade,
even with heavy duty use.

Revolutionary patented design valley, guides material onto and along the
surgical steel blade. As the valley deepens, the pressure on the blade is increased
and the cutting action is more effective , thus taking the strain off the operator
and increasing overall efficiency. For right and left handed use.

All operators should be trained in the correct use of the Fish 200 Safety Knife.

                        STORAGE
                      STORAGE BEFORE USE
Safety Knives must be stored in a dry and warm environment due to
the internal blades.
Original packaging must be maintained if possible.

IN USE
The operator is responsible for the location of the safety Knife. When
not in use this must be stored in a holster hook blade downwards.
Do not place on worksurfaces where adequate supervision cannot be
given.

                             BLADES
STORAGE BEFORE USE
Blades must be stored in original packaging in a dry and warm
environment. The life of carbon steel blades is reduced when exposed
to damp conditions. Handling of blades can remove the protective
oil.
IN USE
Store spare blades in the internal storage pocket. Replace regularly.
If used in a damp environment change blades more frequently.
DISPOSAL
For a safe working environment retain blunt blades in internal
storage pocket until they can be disposed of in designated sharp bins.
Blades should not be disposed of in normal waste bins or on
worksurfaces etc. To comply with legal requirements, any
contaminated blade should be incinerated.
