    I use Milwakee, Lenox and Starrett blades (Mostly 6 inch 18tpi) with equal success. I have found that if you change the blade after each cut they cut quicker (I use the spent blades for other things aside from rescue work) and the batteries on the saws (DeWalt and Milwakee) last longer. I buy the blades by the 100 pack so they a reasonably cheap this way. Once the blade looses a good percentage of the cutting surface the speed slows greatly and the battery is consumed at a higher rate. My 2 cents..

    about 2 years ago we tested out the Lenox blades with the titanium nitride coating on them. Even though they are more expensive we have been using them ever since. The cost difference is about .50 per blade, if you buy them 25 at a time.

    My full-time job is working in a machine shop. We have been working with TiN coated tooling for years. The same lessons we learned in the shop translated to the saw blades.

    The TiN coating lets us cut faster and cut longer. We don't have to change blades in the middle of an extrication. 1 TiN coated blade cuts at least as much material at 2 uncoated blades. Like always, this is depending on the skill of the guy running the saw.

    If you have tried them out, spend the $10 for a 5 pack and give them a shot.

    The Milwaukee Torch seems to be a good metal cutting blade being a little thicker it takes what seems a little more abuse. The Milwaukee Ax blade is fast for glass removal as well a general overhaul on interior wall exploring.

    Default Morse Blade

    Has anyone used the Morse fire rescue blades? How do they hold up compared to the Lenox?
