Currently using my stock bandsaw blade until it wears out, I’ve got some Timberwolfs on the wall when that happens. I’ve cut honey Mesquite, which is pretty hard (2,340 Janka), and the stock blade struggles. Ironwood is 1,000+ points harder than that. Not sure how thick your ironwood is, but I’ve got some carved stuff – you might as well be cutting into a rock. I’m not sure a 10” bandsaw is suited for that job? Whatever you use, make sure it’s razor sharp.
