I am in the market for a flat tooth rip saw blade that is the standard 1/8”. I am looking for a quality blade to make spline cuts in mitered picture frame for support and appearance. I need a blade to make a nice square groove for a tight fit for the spline with minimal or no seam. i have looked into the freud LM72R, but not sure of the “extra large flat tooth design.” It seems to be over 1/8”. Any suggestions or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

I’ve got a Freud LM7M010 which is a great flat top blade and it’s exactly 1/8”. I bought it specificly for cutting splines and I highly recommend it.

The LM72 is 1/8” (0.125”). So is the Infinity 010-024 (on sale for $46).
