Wood Tech Tooling proudly offers 4 grades of Wisconsin Knife Works steel:
WKW AKM (Rockwell 61-64) - A special grade of steel for good wear life, AKM is an excellent alternative to the M-2 with similar characteristics. Excellent for medium and short runs, but often performs well as M-2 in some applications.
WKW M2 (Rockwell 61-63) - High Speed Steel. Made from the highest quality A.I.S.I. M-2 steel. Lumber and woodworking plants the world over specify M-2 High Speed Steel Knives to produce the finest cuts in planer, jointer, moulder and tenoner operations. The consistent hardness and high molybdenum content give an excellent edge and allows for easy grinding. High-Speed Steel is ideal for medium to long runs.
OPTIKNIFE (Rockwell 72-78) - Specially treated to provide 80% of the life of carbide, yet grinds easily and gives you the finish of M-2 steel. An exclusive product offered by Wisconsin Knife Works, this is a knife "Specially treated" in a new state of the art process that produces an ultra hard surface which, unlike coating, will not chip, flake or peel. It is specifically designed for natural woods (dry hardwoods) where you want to obtain the finish of High Speed Steel Tooling but want up to 50% or more longer life. Grinds with normal abrasives. Optiknife has a R/C of 78. Grinds and joints with the same abrasives as conventional HSS.
