Up until recently I have been using standard Band saw blade without much success, I tend to cut and re-saw a lot of white oak upto 12” in width.
It was recomended to try the Lenox Tri-maste carbide tiped blade. It is a little expensive at about $140 for a 3/4” 3TPI x 136”, but boy was it worth it, I have just used it today, for all kinds of cuts on white Oak, including a 12” resaw of a board 8’ long, it was like a hot knife through butter – with vitually no teeth marks.
You can get the technical information from this link http://www.lenoxtools.com/enUS/Product/Tri-master.html – I would highly recomend it for any serious cutting – buy the way the teeth can be re-shapened and the blade should last about 10 times longer than a standard blade.
