This is likely a stupid newbie question, I thought that all rip blades had a flat top grind and thought I could use them for box joints. I went and did an impulse buy on a WWII 20T Rip at Woodcraft on a lunch break so I was short on time, didnt look too hard and didnt ask any questions. When I got home I noticed it has a ATB/Raker label. It is unopened and I am unsure if I want to return it. Does the Raker portion of the label mean that the cut will be without “bat ears”?

Unless it is a flat top grind, it will leave the bevel in the cut. Not all rip blades are flat top grinds.
