The ONE thing I understand that is better about a properly designed riving knife is that it can be used on a non through cut, where a splitter can't. But I have also heard some talk about the riving knives on their saws being taller than the blade, which won't work with a non through cut. Don't remember the brands that were being talked about.
I personally think that I would like a riving knife on my next saw, but only if it is what I would term a true riving knife. If it is just a built in splitter that goes up and down with the blade, then I'll pass. Jim.
