Dean – The Freud TK/Avanti line was discontinued as of June 2009. You might still be able to find some remaining stock in stores, but be aware that HD has is now offering a cheap Chinese knockoff line called “Avanti” and “Avanti Pro”...the quality and appearance of the knockoff line is not even close to the Freud, is not made by Freud, and has nothing to do with Freud. You should be able to find a very similar blade in the Freud Diablo line, or possibly the Freud Industrial line.

A few other recommendations:
Holbren's got the CMT blades, and the Oshlun bargain line.
Forrest also has some highend circular saw blades
