The standard temperature rating on the KM and Xpress-KM knife making furnaces is now 2350 degrees F. “We raised the temperature rating so knife makers could heat treat the newest steels,” said Arnold Howard, spokesman for Paragon.
“The only difference between the Xpress-KM and KM furnaces is the digital temperature controller,”
The door on Paragon knife making furnaces opens downward. A counter-balance handle keeps the door closed. A safety door switch turns off the elements when the door is opened.
