MSI Offers a 3 Day Turn-Around on Custom Profile GTP Knives
All prices include the cost of steel, cutting, squaring, balancing and profiling. 3/4" is added to the width of each knife to allow for proper squaring and for the axial constant dimension of your choice up to 10mm or 3/8". .250" is standard if no axial constant dimension is specified.
Call for pricing and information on Carbide Inlay and Piggy Back GTP knives
Knife stock is 5/16" thick M2 for all knives up to 2 1/2". Add $4.00 per inch for DGK-2000™ heat reflective steel. Minimum knife depth used is 1-1/2" as standard. 1-1/4" available only if shallow pocket cutterheads are being used. This is to assure safe installation of the knife into the head body.
