Custom Shaper Knives

Elevate your woodworking projects with our custom moulder and shaper knives. Tailored to your specifications for precise and flawless results.

At Hancock Tool, we take great care in customizing shaper knives to meet the unique needs of our customers.

We have the ability to match any machine profile, including Foley, RBI, Williams & Hussey, Powermatic, and standard corrugated heads. Our shaper knife material selection includes a variety of options, such as Williams & Hussey, Corrugated M2, M3, Black Nitride, Carbide Inlay, and Carbide Backpack.

Our custom shaper knife making process is thorough and carefully executed. We begin by tracing a scanned wood sample in a CAD program, and then we use our OMAX Waterjet with 55,000 lbs. of pressure mixed with abrasive garnet to create a rough profile. The shaper knife is then finished on our UTMA P20 CNC to achieve the sharpest edge possible.

Finally, we hone, balance, label, and dip the shaper knife in a protective wax coating.

If you are interested in custom shaper knives, we would be happy to assist you. Please send us your CAD files or sample images with dimensions, along with your machine specs, and email them to If you prefer, you can also mail us physical samples to 12000 Riverwood Drive, Burnsville, MN 55337.

Our lead time is typically 3-4 days from shaper knife drawing approval.
