Flex Back / Hard Back

Precision Blades “Flex-Back” is perfect for general wood processing including contouring, furniture frame cutting, cardboard/packaging material, bubble wrap, etc. Precision Blade “Flexi-Back” possesses a high carbon content. The blade teeth are milled, rather than stamped producing a sharper more consistent tooth. The teeth are then induction heat-tempered to a high Rockwell hardness, while leaving the back of the blade more flexible. This dual process provides a precision sharpened, hardened tooth that cuts quickly and efficiently through the wood, while the flexible blade back provides greater elasticity, dramatically extending the life of the blade. For the furniture cutting process, it is recommended that every tooth be set (ETS). Flexi-Back is available in 6 different widths from 1/8” to 2”, .025/.032/.035 thicknesses (depending on width), and 7 different pitches ranging from 3 to 24 Pitch (Teeth/Inch).

“Flex-Back” Blade material is manufactured using high carbon European mined ore. The chemical composition of the finished product possesses a unique metallurgical structure exclusive for all Precision Blade products. Our state of the art manufacturing processes is methodical in guaranteeing every tooth is properly sized and extra sharp. Precision Blades proprietary welding process also delivers a stronger bond which withstands higher feed rates than other blades on the market.
