Class Code: 3122

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 3122 is assigned to insureds engaged in the manufacture of knives such as table, carving, butcher, pocket and straight razors. Forged stock or strip steel, wood blocks, metal, plastic or prefabricated handles are received from outside sources. Steel is cut and shaped to specification on power presses, forged, heated, hardened, tempered and ground, polished, buffed and sharpened. Prefabricated or wood handles, shaped by machine, are then attached. The incidental casting or molding of either metal or plastic in enlarging or bolstering the shank of the blades or to form handles also falls within the scope of this classification. Code 3122 is also assigned to insureds engaged in the manufacture of steel nail files, nail clippers, tweezers, cuticle scissors and manicure scissors involving the above operations. While these products do not usually require handles, they may involve plating operations.

Code 3122 operations are designated as “not otherwise classified” (NOC). These NOC operations shall apply to an insured only when no other classification more specifically describes the insured’s operations. The following is a representative list of classifications somewhat related in nature to Code 3122 operations that are not assigned to Code 3122:

3118 File or Saw Mfg.
3146 Hardware Mfg.
3270 Razor Mfg.—Safety
3383 Silverware Mfg.
3114 Tool Mfg.—Drop or Machine Forged—NOC
3113 Tool Mfg.—Not Drop or Machine Forged—NOC

In addition to this representative list, one should review sources such as the alphabetical index in this manual to determine whether a classification other than Code 3122 or a classification other than one on the above list is applicable to the operations being reviewed for classification purposes.

State Addendum
