Great Lakes Industrial Knife has pioneered the age of brazed tool steels. Like ICE™, our Inlaid Carbide Extreme product line, we have perfected several unique brazing techniques that allow us to bond a hardened tool steel cutting edge to a “soft” or “heat refined” backing steel. Primarily used to reduce the costs associated with solid, through-hardened tool steels, our composite inlay tool steel products feature a seamless edge that make them ideal for industrial cutting and scraping applications. These inlaid composite tool steel machine knives are built to last and we are able to manufacture lengths up to 15 feet making them an ideal alternative for industrial scraping applications! Let Great Lakes Industrial Knife performance engineer a composite that is right for your cutting application.
