WELCOME TO THE BORK STORE!
The BORK (Bolt-On Ripping Knife) is my response to a statement made on a woodworking forum: "A retrofit riving knife is not possible". It took almost two years and the help of several other woodworkers to arrive at today's BORK. It works, I use it, and I will guarantee your satisfaction: 30 day unconditional full refund if product is returned in as-received condition.
The BORK in Stainless Steel:is now available. Heavier and more rigid, it is recommended for use with the BORK Blade Guards or for heavy duty use. The original aluminum BORK is no longer available.
NEW: If you own an original BORK and would like to upgrade to the stainless steel version, special (really) pricing is available. Contact me with your original purchase date (approximate will work) and I'll send you a coupon code.

The BORK Blade Guard (BBG) is the result of being without my overhead blade guard for some time after moving into a new shop. It's an extension of the BORK concept...safety that's easy and convenient to use. Please Note: The BBG is no longer available for use with the aluminum BORK.

The BORK will not fit all saws. An alternative is a Zero-Clearance Insert Mounted Splitter. It won't move up and down with the saw blade but it will provide anti-kickback protection. Also, the splitter can be fitted with an optional blade cover (BBG) for added safety.
