Selecting the Right Blade


A quick guide to selecting the right blade for you and your job


Green Blades

Our green blades are the value choice for many jobs, and an ideal introduction to the green exchange system. Available for framing and finishing work, they’re also eco-friendly—made without the use of chromium and with a small percentage of recycled carbide. 


Decking & Framing

Our general (GEN) decking and professional (PRO) framing blades are engineered for ripping and crosscutting dimensional lumber and composite materials. These blades feature tough ATB (alternating top bevel) carbide tooth configurations that sever wood fibers cleanly and quickly. 


RAZORBACK®

One of the toughest and safest blades available, providing long lasting, accurate performance under heavy-duty, high heat conditions. The imbedded sock tooth design reduces the possibility of tooth loss, and the anti-kickback shoulder eliminates grabbing. A super fine cutting edge offers fast, smooth cutting without waste or wear on equipment. 


All Purpose (Planer Combination)

A blade designed for both fast ripping and semi- smooth crosscutting of a wide variety of wood materials—made possible by the ATBR (alternating top bevel with raker) tooth configuration. A must-have blade for the general contractor and do-it-yourselfer (DIYer). 


Miter-Wood

Our general (GEN) chop saw blade is a value priced blade ideal for quick miter work on the job site or around the house. For finer finishing work, choose our professional (PRO) or industrial (IND) blades. They’re specially designed for extra smooth cuts when using miter and radial arm saws, and use high grade C3 and C4 carbide. 


Finishing (Shelving & Cabinetry)

Our general (GEN) shelving and professional (PRO) cabinetry blades are designed for cutting softwoods and hardwoods used in general carpentry, where a smooth finish is required. PRO cabinetry blades are recommended for fine, splinter-free cutting of molding, paneling, veneers and expensive hardwoods. 


Ultra Thin

The extra narrow kerf (cut width) provides a faster, smoother cut and minimum waste. They’re ideal for cutting pressboard, veneers, paneling and fine hardwoods, as well as for use on cordless or low-powered saws. 


Melamine/Laminates

An extra fine finishing blade featuring TCG (triple chip grind) tooth configuration and C3 or C4 carbide tips. Their precision design provides splinter-free cutting of melamine, laminates and hard plastics. 


Fiber Cement

Designed to easily cut through Hardie-Plank®, Cemplank® and other fiber cement products, with minimal dust. Our IND blades feature poly-crystalline diamond (PCD) carbide teeth that last significantly longer.


Miter-Aluminum

Specifically designed for miter saws, these blades feature C6 carbide teeth, TCG (triple chip grind) tooth configuration, and -5° hook angles for fast, smooth and safe cutting of non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, copper and brass. 


Metal

These heavy and extreme-duty blades are designed to safely cut mild steel roofing, metal siding and steel studs (≤ .062 gauge). They feature hardened plates, thin kerfs, strong chip limiting shoulders, and 0° hook angles—to reduce jamming, overfeeding and overheating. 


RAZOR TOOTH®

Our Razor Tooth blades are the ultimate finishing blades, available in professional (PRO) (C3) and industrial (IND) (C4) carbide grades. Choose these blades for ultra-smooth, mirror finishes when cutting fine woods, veneers and laminate flooring. 


LASER LINE®

Laser Line blades are precision manufactured with C4 carbide tips, laser cut plates and anti-noise/vibration vents. They’re available in 10" size for all purpose, melamine, miter-wood, and miter-aluminum cutting.
