The staying performance of a marathon runner
Marathon high performance coating extends the high cut quality by 3 to 6 times that of uncoated edges.
Nature as our teacher
Leitz looked to nature when developing the Leitz Marathon high performance coatings. Similar in operation to a rodent’s teeth, the cutting knives are constantly sharp and ready for use, evident when comparing different tools after use.
The proof – as sharp as a rodent’s tooth
75% higher wear on uncoated edges.
Marathon coated HS edge
Still a sharp cutting edge after 3.000 running metres and high processing quality.
Uncoated HS edge
High wear and rounding after 3.000 running metres. Additional costs from increased set-up time and rework.
The high performance Marathon MC (Multi Coating) is resistant to wear and particularly powerful combined with HS cutting materials (high performance steel). Marathon MC coated knives have up to 6 times the performance time in solid wood, gluelam and plastics of uncoated knives.

Marathon high performance coating TDC (Tungsten Diamond Coating) is an innovative development of tungsten carbide. Marathon TDC coated tungsten increases performance times 3 times in solid wood, panel materials and plastics. Wear resistance and reduced abrasion protect resources and reduce costs.
