It works just as good as any of the blades and is cheaper. This makes it better, IMO. I've tried the festool, makita, and freud. I use the freud more then any of them. The only thing that could be an issue is sometimes the red Perma-Shield coating can rub off on your cut. But this is rare for me. It only matters if I leave a space on my seam board and you look down through it. But like I said its small potatoes. I still use my freuds more often.

My question I guess is because there are many times when I am ripping close to the edge of a sheet, half on half off, where blade deflection and runoff is a concern. I have had zero issues with the festool blade, it hold a true line. I didn't know Tenryu or Forrest made a blade for it either. I can't justify a Forrest, that is a ridiculous price.

I haven't used the Freud, but wouldn't think deflection wod be an issue with a blade that small. I guess it's possible, though. Agree the Forrest blade is ridiculously expensive. I don't know how it could produce any better cut than the Festool, which is pretty much perfect anyway.

I have been using a 28t blade for 95% of my cutting. Just as nice as the 48 and less money.

I don't understand Forrest, their blades are stupid expensive and no better then any other blade I have used.

That wasn't much of a blade review there in fine wood dorking.

I've also wondered about those blades. My biggest concern was the kerf, it would be great to see one in person to compare.

I also like the 28 tooth blade better than the stock 48. I had trouble ripping through some cedar the first week I had the saw and stopped at my dealer for the 28, made a huge difference and the cuts are as good as the 48. I would have bought the Freud if they carried them.

Warner where do you get your Tenryu blades?
