Ox-SAC-08

The Ox-SAC-08 is the world’s simplest angled cleaver.    The single mode fiber is clamped under rubber rings at two points and bent down onto a sharp diamond blade.   The optical fiber is cleaved so that its single mode core is at an angle of 8° from perpendicular so that the back-reflection is reduced to <-60dB.
