Diamond saw blade. I had to use it to remove a 15 cm
wide bar of granite they left for transportation safety
in the kooking plate hole in the counter top.....
Cost me two diamond blades(totally ruined).
luckely for me, the cooking plate covers the iffy work I did....

Is your skill saw going to reach all the way to the back edge or would
you pull the whole thing away from the wall?

There is a 3" gap from were the back of the stove sits to the back splash
that sits again the wall.
the cut will stop 3"
