|THE PARAGON KM KNIFE-MAKING KILNS|
Paragon KM kilns are generally used for making knives, and annealing, hardening, heat-treating, and tempering blades, cutters, dies, tools, engineering components, and gun parts, although they have other applications. They're 1290°C kilns with digital programmers, in Paragon black or customised berry, blue, jade, navy, pink, purple, or turquoise.
There are five regular versions: the KM14T, KM18T, KM24T, KM36T, and KM45T, the number being the approximate interior depth in inches. T means tilted front.
There are three XL versions: the KM9T XL, KM18T XL, and KM24T XL. The XL versions are twice as wide as the regular versions and have Sentry 12-key programmers. In the US, Paragon calls them double-barrel.
There are three 5-star versions: the KM18T Pro, KM24T Pro, and KM36T Pro with stainless-steel spring-assisted guillotine doors, high-power fast-heat ceramic-fibre interiors, 3-zone temperature control, and Sentinel SmartTouch programmers.
