Not only are they made from some of the finest materials around, but to tremendously exacting standards. More on that in subsequent blog entries, but suffice it to say, there is a new serious contender in the high quality carbide-tipped saw blade market.

I would write more … but the water taxi is waiting to take me to a lovely restaurant on the lagoon.

Ciao for now!
