Usually width of ice cream stick is between 9.5-10.0 mm, round edge sticks needs chamfering process. This step will cut 0.5 - 0.6 mm width of wood sticks.
Straight edge sticks just cut 9.5 - 10.0 mm width wood.
Round edge sticks needs to cut 10.3 - 10.9 mm width wood. After chamfering, width will be 9.5 - 10.0 mm.
Generally, round edge stick will use 8% - 10% more wood logs, this is key reason why round edge stick is more expensive than straight edge stick.
