The high-speed steel (HSS) cutting tool edge recession increase (VB) from milling wood of nine wood species with very different properties were analyzed. Theoretical simulations showed that the synergistic effect of the wood density (D), hard mineral contamination (HMC), and high temperature tribochemical reactions (HTTR), as well as initial edge recessions were important factors that accelerated wearing on the examined cutting edges.
