These are amazing blades. Note the thickness of the blade at .014 inches. A normal blade is .025 inches thick and takes a total kerf of .035" + while the total kerf of this blade is .025". A normal flexback blade, left to run without use, has a lifespan of between 4 and 5 hours while this one has a span of 24 to 25 hours. We started to use this blade in our shop years ago to cut expensive and dense materials such as ancient fossilized wooly mammoth ivory tusks into piano keys (key tops). The blade not only saved on the kerf in exotic - costly materials but it proved to have greater cutting abilities and a much greater lifespan than the other blades we were using - so much so that we have since switched every saw in our shop over to utilizing this blade with the exception of the saws used for rough cutting material. I use this blade to regularly slab 4 inch wide ancient mammoth ivory tusks and it does it better than any other blade I have ever used !
This blade works great on woods and ivory as well as on soft metals such as aluminum and brass.
The flexback blade stock is made by a leading European manufacturer of band saw blades and band knives. With a high silicon content steel blade and unique heat treatment technology this steel blade is one of the best carbon steel blades on the market. Don't let the 1/4 inch width fool you - this little blade can cut and hold up!
