Produced from high toughness tool steel. These knife edges are used in applications where the standard knife edges may experience excessive chipping, such as on very hard metals. They are also ideal for high modulus composites. The dual bevel design and tougher material of construction provides a greater resistance to damage during testing. These knife edges are also recommended for biomedical testing (especially bone) where stability of the contact point can be compromised due to the softness of the test specimen. The dual bevel edge prevents slight output shifts on the sample that can result from the standard knife edges biting into the sample.
