RE: The tariff classification of 100 knife blades with dispenser from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Hamanaka:

In your letter dated January 19, 1998, on behalf of A.W.I. Acquisition Co., Sylmar, Cal., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item being imported is the Model 52050 replacement knife blades with dispenser. The blades are sold separately from the holder in retail packages of 100. The blades can be used with utility knives, trimmers and scrapers.

The applicable subheading for the 100 knife blades with dispenser will be 8205.59.5505, Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for edged handtools: single edge razor blades other than for shaving. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Melvyn Birnbaum at 212-466-5487.
