Chipping and Timber Processing

Fisher Barton’s Zenith Cutter chipper knives are specially designed and engineered to withstand the rigorous demands of brush chipping and timber processing applications. With longer lasting Zenith blades, we keep your wood chippers running longer and more productively. We perform all the manufacturing steps in-house too, to ensure the highest quality. We start with premium modified A8 chipper steel, mill it to precise depth and thickness, heat treat and temper it for long wear and toughness, and then finish grind and bevel edge it for easy installation in the field.
