Volpi presents the Kamikaze KM2973: straight saw with protective sheath
Kamikaze KM2973 is a straight saw with a 270mm blade equipped with a protective plastic sheath that ease its transport during use and its storage when not in use. The plastic handle covered with non-slip rubber makes working is ideal for the hand even without the use of gloves.
The rubber also allows to distribute the pressure between fingers. The special design of the handle, with its curved shape, reduces the effort required for cutting.
The blades of the Kamikaze KM2973 are sharpened using an innovative system called Hollow ground (roll sharpening) which reduces the thickness of the back of the blade to minimise the friction with the wood. This particular sharpening system can be seen in the longitudinal section of the blade.
The teeth are sharpened by a computer-controlled disc, which allows to obtain a perfect symmetry through the blade, ensuring a constant cutting action.
Each tooth is tempered through an innovative system: hardness 900HV-950HV (HRC 67/68 degrees); the use of this particular technology makes the Kamikaze KM2973 resistant up to 3 times more than a conventional one. The shape and position of the teeth prevent the blade from getting dirty while cutting.
The chromed blades prevent from oxidation and avoid the accumulation of sap, thus always ensuring a smooth, fast cut with minimal effort. The blades of Kamikaze saws are made of SK-4 steel and carbon, which increase their elasticity and strength.
