The price difference between whole-carbide punches and brazed-carbide punches for nail making may vary depending on the specific type, size, and supplier. However, in general, whole-carbide punches are typically more expensive than brazed-carbide punches. Some customers choose to order the brazed one due to the head being the working area.

Nail-making punches require high wear resistance and toughness to withstand the continuous impact and pressure during production.

Brazed-carbide punches have a steel body with a carbide tip that is brazed onto the end. They are less expensive to produce than whole-carbide punches since only the tip is made of carbide, and the steel body is less expensive.
