The Dexter manufacturing process is committed to crafting products of consistent quality and dependability...all at unmatched value.
Our 200 years of experience and state-of-the-art equipment enable us to produce superior cutting edges that are sharp out-of-the-box, long-lasting, and easily restored. Our manufacturing process involves:
Blade Formation: Blades are created through laser cutting or the traditional blanking process. The blade shape is created and the scrap "skeleton" is recycled.
Heat Treatment: Controlled heating and cooling are used to create a small, tight grain structure thus producing a blade that is extremely strong, wear-resistant, and with just-right flexibility.
Precision Edge Grinding: Accurate and consistent grinding creates specific flex points so blades flex precisely where they should.
DEXSTEEL: Enhances sharpness, edge-holding, corrosion resistance, and ease of re-sharpening. Creates a finer grain structure enhancing edge sharpness and life. Increases hardenability and tensile strength for durability and toughness.
