Serrated edges are used for cutting natural fibers such as rope and kelp and can be used with a sawing motion. The straight edge knives are better for cutting plastic, fishing line and nylon rope. You can get knives with a serrated and straight edge so you would be better to get one of these.

Centering saw blade


The most important thing is that the blade and riving knife are centered with each other. If not, you may have to shim the riving knife.

The bolts that hold the carriage under the table are intentionally sloppy so that you can loosen them and align the blade/knife with the miter gauge slots.
Lay a long metal straight edge against the side of a carbide blade teeth with the blade all the way up, and make sure the straight edge is parallel with the miter gauge slots in the table. Then tighten the bolts on the underside.

What are the advantages to buying a titanium diving knife?


Titanium contains no carbon therefore it will not rust as near as quickly as stainless steel and they almost certainly are corrosion resistant, titanium is also a lot stronger than stainless steel knives and they require almost zero maintenance.

How should I care for my stainless steel dive knife so it doesnt go rusty?


. Stainless Steel contains high carbon traces for strengthening, they will almost certainly rust. To ensure that you care for your knife you should rinse it well with fresh water after a dive and allow it to dry naturally outside of its sheath, you can also apply some oil to the blade from time to time, and this will preserve your knife for longer.

What is the most practical size dive knife?




The best sized dive
knife is a medium sized knife with a blade measuring about 4-5 inches. The
medium size dive knives are better because they are about the right size to
strap to your arm of leg and have a big enough handle that can be gripped easy
with gloves on.

How does an electric knife work?


The way the knife works is that it has two knife blades put together. These blades are serrated (notched). When the power is on, the blades move sideways and basically saw through whatever they are cutting.
