The Ice Edge™ is a reciprocating saw blade specifically designed to handle even the toughest metal cutting in HVAC, plumbing, and other industries, said the manufacturer. With a bimetal construction, the blades are flexible, to prevent shock, fatigue, and shattering. According to the company, the completely redesigned blade optimizes metal cutting with precision-ground teeth and a radiused back face that increases tooth strength, resulting in faster cuts and longer blade life. The positive rake on the cutting edges removes chips aggressively and deeper gullets help keep the cut clear and cool to ensure optimal heat resistance. The cryogenic heat treat process induces a permanent change in the microstructure of the high-speed steel cutting edge. Because it penetrates to the full depth of the blades, this treatment improves the hardness, wear resistance, and dimensional stability of each blade.
