Blade Construction

Blades can be made from one piece of steel, or built up of two pieces, depending on the performance and life expectancy required.

Carbon

Hard Back: A one-piece blade made of carbon steel with a hardened back and tooth edge.
Flex Back: A one-piece blade made of carbon steel with a hardened tooth edge and soft back.

Bi-metal

A high speed steel edge material is electron beam welded to fatigue resistant spring steel backing. Such a construction provides the best combination of cutting performance and fatigue life.

Carbide Ground Tooth

Teeth are formed in a high strength spring steel alloy backing material.

Carbide is bonded to the tooth using a proprietary welding operation. Tips are then side, face and top ground to form the shape of the tooth.

Set Style Carbide Tooth

Teeth are placed in a high strength spring alloy backing material. Carbide is bonded to the tooth and ground to form the shape of the tooth. The teeth are then set, providing for side clearance.
