The material of the blade is divided into the following types:
| Texture || characteristic || price |
| Cemented carbide || Very sharp cutting efficiency. Longest service life. Highest blade hardness. Better brittleness. || highest |
| High speed steel || High cutting efficiency, long service life, good insert toughness || Lower than carbide inserts |
| Ordinary steel || Cutting efficiency can meet customer needs. Service life is worse than hard alloy and high speed steel. || low |
There are many types of hard alloy raw materials, such as YG13X, YG12, YG8, YG10 and so on. Different grades of cemented carbide raw materials bring different characteristics. When selecting a specific brand, a reasonable selection should be made according to the specific requirements of the cutting object according to the processing object.
Tungsten steel blades are very sharp, so during the inspection of the blades, it is necessary to do a good job of protection to avoid unprotected hands touching the cutting edge of the tool. In addition, cemented carbide blades are brittle. Therefore, during handling, management and use, they should be handled lightly and placed flat, so that they cannot collide with other steel and other hard objects.
