Our brush chipper knives are manufactured to OEM standards using the same modified A8 chipper knife steel we use in making our sawmill and pulp mill chipper knives. We've found that using this material has the best balance of abrasion resistance, cutting edge retention and impact resistance of any material we've identified. The Big Rapids facility has a first rate heat treat process that can allow us to control the hardness of the cutting edge while maintaining the softer, more ductile, center very accurately.  Proudly manufactured in the USA!
