REGULAR RAKER - Best-suited where material being cut are of uniform size and for contour cutting.
HOOK - A 10 rake angle for fast cutting of gummy materials. The rounded, deeper gullest allow fast chip removal. Generally used when cutting large cross-sections of material.
WAVY - For cutting very thin materials where tooth breakage has been a problem. Cuts a variety of shapes and thicknesses.
SKIP - Designed with longer, shallower gullets for extended chip removal. Recommended for plastics, wood, and other soft materials. (Carbon blades only.)
