SUREKUT® SOLID KNIVES are made from solid hardened high carbon, high chrome steel (HCHC). Popular for three-knife trimmer bottom knives.
DURAKUT™ High Speed Steel
DURAKUT™ HSS INLAID KNIVES utilize a vacuum brazed 18 % Tungsten (T1 HSS) inlay that provides a smooth, keen and durable cutting edge that can provide up to five times longer lifetime than standard knives.
ULTRAKUT™ CARBIDE INLAID KNIVES combine superior sharpness with exceptional wear resistance.
Our ULTRAKUT™ KNIVES are manufactured with a sub-micron tungsten carbide inlay.
