Dienes invented the PQAS knife holders and continues to be a main stay to cut moderately hard materials. With one quick movement of the handle, an innovative integrated clamping mechanism securely and squarely locks the holder to the dovetail bar. The Dienes PQAS knife holder delivers 75 pounds force at 90 PSI and is rated to operate at 950 feet per minute. All Dienes holders feature hardened side plates to increase holder life beyond anything else on the market. Dienes manufactures the holder to tight tolerances to minimize the wobble of the crush cut knife.
