Paragon Knifemakers Heat Treating Kit

SKU: Paragon Heat Treating Kit

Availability: In stock



Contains 1 pair hot gloves, 1 heat treating fork, 4 knifeholders, and 8 firebrick supports.

Hot Gloves

For intermittent handling of hot objects up to 400° F. Sold in pairs. Not intended for handling hot blades.

Heat Treating Fork

Easily removes knifeholders and blades from the hot furnace. A sliding wooden handle allows you the most comfortable position for holding the fork. 31” long.

Firebrick Supports

Position firebrick supports under the knifeholders inside the furnace. The firebrick supports raise the knifeholders so you can slide the fork under holders.


High temperature removable pins fit into holes pressed into a ceramic base. The pins hold the blades on edge so heat can circulate around each blade. (You will need to wrap the blades in heat treating foil, which is not included in this kit.)

Don't waste your time.
When I ordered this kit it was for my new Paragon KM36D. I thought this would be a good way to get what I needed. First be aware that the kits need to be made up and come from Paragon so you need to wait perhaps 2 weeks.

Then the kit comes with pieces that will not fit into the kiln! The pins that hold the knives are too tall for the kiln chamber. The blocks that hold the pins have misaligned holes, and the 'fork' tool is bent and unbalanced. This makes it so that it wants to rotate when you try to put a knife in the kiln.

Save your time and money and look for other options.
