For many, many years the best metal in the business has been hardened steel. This metal produced amazing results through the years and provided much needed tools, bits, saws, knives and other products. Hardened steel was the metal of choice.

Since the introduction of tungsten carbide to the industries such as road work, mining, metal shops, and the medical fields, we have come to appreciate the value of this newer metal. Tungsten carbide is mined in foreign countries and imported to the United States to be manufactured into various tools and instruments.

The cost of tungsten carbide is more than hardened steel but is easily made up for in the long-lasting usage, hardness, and finer cutting abilities inherent in this metal. Tungsten carbide is often combined with other materials to allow for the manufacturing process and to provide a more useful material.

Tungsten carbide scrap results from the breakage, filings, and the wear that tungsten carbide experiences through normal usage in the industries of choice. Machine shops, both private to the industry and separate machine shops, work to refile, sharpen and extend the life of carbide tools and pieces in order to use for a longer period of time.
