Edge life of a blade is a variable that depends on several factors including what you cut, how often you clean them, how much heat builds up during your cutting sessions, the quality of the carbide, the appropriateness of the blade for the task, the alignment of the saw, the power of the saw, how flat the material is, how moist the material is, feedrate, etc, etc.

4 to 5 blades in a year would be a pretty busy year for me. I clean my blades often, don’t cut that much, and have several blades that I swap out, so none of them really sees much use. Cleaning the blades often is a big factor that can help keep your blades performing like new for a lot longer….it really makes a big difference.
