GUTERL M-1 is a highly-molybdenum, low-tungsten type of high-speed tool steel. It is a general-purpose high-speed steel with an excellent combination of cutting ability, finishing characteristics and toughness. Guterl M-1 has good cutting ability for all operations except for heavy-duty, continuous cutting applications that require the ultimate in red hardness. Its toughness is as great as that of other high-speed steels. Its typical uses include circular saws, broaches, gear cutters, twist drills and taps.
