Complaint: We have paper complaints from our finished products. The paper is being generated from the knives we are currently using to open our 50 lb. dry ingredient bags. Jagged cuts and missing paper. We are currently using and have used 6" Dexter Russell Boning Knives for 10+ years. When not in use the knives are stored in an open slit tray attached to the mixer. Currently cutting the bag open on the wide side w/a half moon cut and lifting both ends up to empty the bag.
Production does not want to remove the bag stitching to open the bag. New F.M.
Production does not want to remove the out layer. Too many bags, added $.
I recently purchased 5 sets of 3" paring knives and sheaths. Issued the to production. Recently informed the test failed => cut hand. Cut resistant gloves are not worn in the mixer area.
Thinking we need to approach bag opening from a whole different perspective.
Looking for some input for use of other similar knives, a source for videos/presentations on cutting 50 lb. dry ingredient bags, knife sharpening, storage and tracking programs, etc.
Thanks for your time.
