In the last two days, your intrepid editor has traveled to Venice, Italy and then up to Udine, Italy, to learn about Irwin’s newest entry into the circular saw blade market. Now, I understand that you might be feeling sorry for me … Venice in May is hard to take … but fear not, I am holding up well.
The exciting news is that these new saw blades from Irwin, launched under the Marples brand, look like the real deal. 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!
