dewalt has a real problem with the tool life of the 735 knives. i heard that an aftermarket knife manufacturer was looking at making a carbide knife (whick would be probably be at least $100) for the 735 (as opposed to the HSS in it now) , HSS is used my most manufacturers, but the tool life is dependent on tool geometry and alloying, machining and heat treatment. the 735 is the premier “portable planer” it this field of offerings, and its a shame dewalt has not admitted and rectified the problem, with a knife that is as good as the planer.
