The lifespan of shear slitting knives is directly related to the side pressure of the male knife (top) against the female knife (bottom).

Higher pressure increases wear and thus decreases lifespan.

Adjust the knife pressure or side loading to a level where it reduces wear, but still provides clean cutting action. Whether using individual shear knife holders or shaft mounted as shown, this is an important factor to consider.
