Product Description Safety Data/Technical Specs
MSI Knife Steel - DGK Coated - 25 x 1-1/2 x 5/16 - HSS 60

DGK steel is a specially processed steel that increases the tool life by as much as 10 times over regular High Speed Steel. The coating is a patented diamond like coating that can withstand heat of over 2200 F. DGK is ground and jointed the same as other HSS and does not change procedures in the tool room or at the moulder except DO NOT HONE THE FACE. DGK has been used to run short runs of MDF up to 5,000 lineal feet. Maple and oak runs have been reported as much as 25,000 lineal feet and we had a report from one of our pine high speed mills that runs over 1 million feet regularly on DGK. Your results may vary depending upon accuracy of the grind and material being run.
How to Use This Product
DGK knife steel is recommended for long runs in most woods including maple, hickory, oak and poplar. It can also be used in short runs (up to 5,000 lineal feet) in most MDF materials. I recommend that you use a magic ceramic wheel for roughing DGK. You can use either a ceramic finishing wheel or CBN super abrasive for finish grinding this steel product. This product normally increase productivity 6-10 times over M2 steel with the finish of HSS knives.
