An Introduction to Barranca Diamond Blades

A note about Barranca Diamond Blades:  Barranca's lapidary diamond blades are manufactured at their factory in the United States. They are made from mechanically notched carbon steel (1050) cores charged and furnace sintered with premium grade industrial diamonds and metal powders. The diamond matrix is formulated to yield the maximum blade life.  As the leading edge or outer circumference of the blade does all the cutting, there is minimum side clearance abrasion which minimizes marks on the cut material, premature segment wear, and core overheating. Notched rim blades are designed to perform under the most demanding cutting conditions for commercial, industrial, and hobby applications.
