Dutch term or phrase: afstootmes
This refers to some kind of finishing blade that is used to complete a PVC welded seam between bands of floor covering. I understand the elements that make up the word. What I am looking for is a precise word or term in English. It is used to remove excess PVC wire from the seam weld after the weld has cooled.

Well thanks to both of you! I think I shall compromise and say 'sharp trimming knife'. I have decided to give the points to BridgeVB for all that effort.
