Star Cutting Tip

The Star Cutting Tip's unique design uses a wave-like serrated cutting edge for clean, clog-free coring through stems, leaves and buds. Constructed of hardened 4340 steel alloy to optimize cutting edge sharpness and durability, the Star cutting tip design has revolutionized forage sampling. Star Cutting Tips are easy to maintain and can be resharpened.

The replaceable Star Cutting Tip fits any standard 1 1/8" forage probe including the Penn State sampler.

Cutting tips on our Multi-Forage Samplers also have the serrated wave-like cutting design. The cutting edge can be resharpened and is replaceable as a cutting tip and probe unit.
