Electric Circular Saws & Plunge Saws

What is a Circular Saw?

A circular saw is hand-held with a rotating circular blade for making straight cuts in different materials.

What's the Difference Between a Circular Saw and a Plunge Saw?

A circular saw has a riving knife which sits behind the blade to prevent the material from pinching the blade and causing kickback when you're making rip cuts. In order to make plunge cuts, the riving knife has to be removed from the saw as it prevents the blade from plunging straight down into the material.

Plunge saws have a spring-loaded riving knife which allows you to make plunge cuts. The material pushes it upwards and out of the way when the initial cut is made, then it slips back down and into the cut as the saw moves forwards.

If you'll be performing plunge cuts on a regular basis, then a plunge saw is the right choice for you!
