Como, There are lots of quality blades out there. I suppose you need to first set your price point. I have pretty good success with freud. The most recent was a 40 tooth atb for approx 100.00 plus a little I think. And I have used Tenryu for quite a while. I have others that have been to the sharpeners so many times the label is long gone. I also have a forrest on one chop saw and a radial arm saw. Used to have one on a table saw and all were full kerf. Its been my experiance that forrest is a good blade but highly overated. Im not sure I ll ever buy another one. Anyhow you better figure on around hundred bucks or there about for a decent blade. You can find a pretty good deal on amazon for the freud. FWIW I m not big on changing blades and that is why I like a decent combination configuration. On occasiion if im into something really special I may use a triple chip. On the fence, sorry theres only one I can recomend: Biesmeyer ! JB
