Double Barrel 18T Pro 3 Zone -KM18 Series-

Heat Treating    Knife Making   


Thermocouple with “special limit” wire

The thermocouple senses temperature inside the kiln. It is the small rod that extends into the firing chamber. The ¼” wide Type-K, 14-gauge, exposed-tip thermocouple is made with special-limit wire for superior accuracy. The exposed tip gives the controller a fast response time for even temperatures during holds. The thermocouple is made in America to our exacting standards.

What Ben Abbott Likes About his 3-Zone Knife Maker’s Kiln

“Nothing compares with the control that I’ve gotten with my 3-zone,” said Ben Abbott, a “Forged in Fire” judge. “I know the temperatures of all three zones at the same time. I know that the back of the kiln is the same temperature as the front of the kiln.

“I can download the program and see what happened in a firing and just make sure everything was consistent. And I know that my next knife is going to be as good as my last knife. That is really important.

“Great people at Paragon. My amazing kiln made by hand in Texas! I got a card with the initials of all the people involved with the creation of my kiln. Who does that anymore?”

David Baker’s Paragon Furnace

“On the show, ‘Forged in Fire,’ we make weapons in a very compressed time frame. The Paragon furnace has been a game changer. It’s saved me an amazing amount of time,” said David Baker, a judge on the show.

“Not only is the kiln wonderful and reliable, but Paragon’s service is fantastic. You can get someone on the phone and they will walk you through the problem. While moving my kiln around, it got bumped into some camera equipment, and parts on the kiln got dinged up. Within a couple of days they shipped new parts to me, and I was back to work.

“If you’re making knives professionally, time is money,” said David. “If your hands aren’t working, you’re not making money. So having the ability to program a kiln, let it do its thing, and literally walk away and do other work is a game changer.”

“Bottom line,” said David Baker, “the Paragon kiln is a good, solid product that winds up saving me a lot of time.”

Designed for production

Paragon’s warranty is not affected by frequency of use. Fire your new kiln every day if you want, even in commercial settings. That will have no effect on the warranty period.

Optional colors at no extra charge

Brighten your studio with color! Order your kiln in one of our standard colors at no extra charge . . . berry, black, blue, hot pink, jade, navy, purple, or turquoise. Scroll down to see color samples in the options section.

Reliable solid state relay

Relays turn the heating elements on and off. This kiln comes with a solid state relay, which lasts much longer than standard mechanical relays. Solid state relays are not only more reliable than mechanical relays. They also make heating elements last longer and offer better temperature control. Solid state relays are quiet. Solid state relays last longer because they have no moving parts to wear out. The kiln is also equipped with a mechanical safety relay.
