Test Exotic Heat Treating Formulas

When your Paragon KM-Series furnace arrives, you will begin to live the knife making adventure more fully.

Now you can join that elite corps of knife makers who witness the birth of the knife.

In the bright red heat of the furnace, the soul of the knife is born.

Many furnace owners revel in testing. They put blades through tests more severe than any knife owner would dare.

They test for Rockwell hardness, but they don’t stop there.

They count the number of cuts a knife makes on hemp rope.

They measure the foot-pounds of torque required to bend the blade to 45° or even 90°.

Then they straighten the blade, slap on a handle and test it in the real world.

Paragon KM-14D

Great knives helped carve out the wilderness, fight wars, save lives.

Explorers have carried them to distant lands. Knives have earned their place in history.

At Paragon we are excited that knives heat treated in the KM-14D are making history right now.

The KM-14D was our first knifemaking furnace. We introduced it in 1986 with an advertisement in Blade magazine.

The KM-14D has the full 12-key Sentry controller.
