Corrugated Knife Steel Bars
For Moulders, Planers, & Shapers
Products:
We offer a wide array of premium knife steel for almost any cutting application. Our knives exceed industry standards and are true high grade A.I.S.I. steels. Our bar stock is salt bath hardened & triple draw stress relieved for bar after bar consistency. **Call to order**
M2 Value Grade
We are happy to introduce M2 Value Grade to our list of corrugated knife steels. This steel has a strong price point/ value ratio and can really help on those competitive jobs. It may lack some of the fancy packaging and other bells and whistles, but will cut your custom jobs with money to spare.

M2 Premium Grade
M2 corrugated high speed steel contain 6% Tungsten and 5% Molybdenum and has earned the right to be called "industry standard" We harden our M2 knife steel to 62 RC for consistent wear resistance in hard and soft woods. Our "premium" grade means that corrugations are extremely accurate, and the cutting edge of the steel is an impeccable horizontal finish grind. So when making a choice for your tooling investment, choose "premium grade"

T-Rex Grade
Tungsten carbide particles in a high speed steel matrix compose this classic tool steel. Tungsten has the highest known melting temperature of all known elements. This imparts the knife steel with a higher "red hot factor". Simply put, this means that the steel will keep its edge at a higher temperature longer than other knife steels. This is our best selling steel and is recommended for T & G's and Cope & Sticks because of steep grinding angles. It is normal to get about 200% more production per sharpening than standard M2 knives.

M3 Knife Steel
M3 knife steel has higher levels of Molybendum, Carbon and Vanadium creating a durable and wear resistant alloy that provides 20-30% more production than standard M2 high speed steel. It is a well liked grade for running jointed applications. M3 can be slightly harder to grind than M2 and T1 and finishing with a Borazon (CBN) wheel is recommended

Black Nitride
Black Nitride is quickly gaining popularity as a durable steel choice for demanding applications. It is case hardened and black oxide coated to increase wear resistance and rust and pitch accumulation. Longer run times are dependent on hook angles. A shallow 12* hook may provide a 50% improvement over M2, where as a 20* hook angle increases production by about 25% . Our nitriding process hardens the cutting edge to a depth of .010 at 72 RC, similar to that of Opti-Steel™.

Endurance
Endurance knife steel is an excellent choice for wood species and composite materials that before were relegated strictly to carbide. Small runs of Teak, Ipe and MDF are now possible with an easy to grind alternative to carbide. With the normal production of these materials being 500-1000 lift it can open up a world of quoting opportunities. Endurance achieves this by adding a P.V.D. (Physical Vapor Deposit) on the cutting surface of the knife steel. Layers of ceramic, titanium, nitrides and other proprietary elements are combined to form a surface twice as hard as carbide, yet can be hogged with normal grinding wheels because the layers are so thin. Care should be taken honing this special steel, talk to Andrew for details.

Carbide Inlay
Sometimes there is just no substitute for carbide. Our high quality carbide inlay knives can produce 10x the amount of ordinary M2 knives. Carbide is great for long runs of MDF, Teak, Anigre, Ipe, composites and much more! Carbide inlay knife steel needs to be ground with special diamond profile grinding wheels. We can provide these wheels as well for most grinders.
