bad edge



  1. A defect of the outside edge of metal on a coil. It happens during the rolling of metal onto the coil. The rolling process causes a deformation of the steel; if the slitter knives are not aligned perfectly, the slitting process will produce a slightly broken or torn edging of the metal.
