Yeah.. would kind of help if you narrowed it down to the type of saw... there are a few different types… jig saw, scroll saw, hack saw, chain saw, circular saw, table saw, band saw, etc, etc, etc…

The companies who sell blades will usually have a web page about types of blades, so checking web sites for The Fridges list might get you what you need. I’m a Freud gal, but found a page under A.G.E. Cutting Tools that has decent descriptions. Check out Freud and Forrest. If they’re too pricey, I think Freud makes the Diablo blades at Home Depot. Not sure about the Avanti blades.

If you’re talking about table saw or miter saw blades, at the end of this blog, each of the most common saw blades grinds are shown with a description of what they’re strengths and weaknesses.
