IMHO Forrest WWII blades are the highest VALUE blades that are available. Not the lowest price, just the highest value in a combination blade. Their dedicated rip blades are outstanding, as is their Dado King 8” set. They run true, stay sharper longer and Forrest’s sharpening service is very reasonably priced when they do finally need sharpening. Plus they are made in America by the Forrest family. I am sure the Freud and Infinity blades are good and lower priced, but I had a Freud with the gimmicky red teflon coating that ended up chipping off, no thanks twice. As always my advice is to buy the very best that you can afford, even if it means foregoing the purchase until you have saved up to make it.
