Italian term or phrase:Controcoltello
Throuout the handbook there are references to the "coltello" (knife) mounted on a sealing bar and used to cut the film and to the "controcoltello". Any suggestions???
Explanation: Direi che per controcoltello si intenda una cosa simile a questa: http://www.claren.it/coltelli_controcoltelli2.php
Cioè una superficie contro cui la lama del coltello possa premere e tagliare.
Ho trovato Counter Knife solo in un sito di una ditta tedesca, tradotto in inglese.
For slitting a circular knife ground on one side is pressed against a circular counter knife also ground on one side. This counter knife is also called a lower knife as the other knife is also called an upper knife.
