All of the ones I own burn on the left side of the blade. They are OK.

Yeah, keep in mind I'm new to the realm of quality blades. I borrowed my father's saw and it had one of these on it. I was pretty blown away as I've probably never spent a third of what that blade costs. Hell, I know for a fact that blade costs more than my saw. hah
To somebody who is used to bottom rung, this was an eye opener.

What kind of bottom rung are we talking here?

Honestly I don't even know what's on my chop box right now. Probably an Avanti or a Marathon or something on that price tier. I don't know if that's exactly bottom rung, but it's certainly nowhere close to $100+ for a blade.

Check out Ridge Carbide. I am hearing they are just as good if not better than Forest. They have their own sharpening service also. I'm planning on giving them a shot when things get rollin this spring.
They are close in quality, I have had both I prefer Forrest. All table & miter saws have them, you cant use table saw blade on miter saw and vice versa.
You really have to see the cut of one of their blades to see how well they work. When cutting cherry you can stop halfway through the cut and there is no burning at all

Oddly enough both companies are less than 10 miles apart here in NJ
