5/8” arbor
about 6-1/4” diameter
very aggressive teeth
no markings
I found it in a stack of blades given to me several years ago.

It looks to me like an old rusty blade.

The diamond knock out looks like it’s a blade for a circular saw to me.

Look at the arbor on this saw

You’ve narrowed it down to a rusty circular saw blade, clearly at the top of your game! I hope you didn’t need youtube to figure it out. :)

In all seriousness though, I don’t care about the knock out. I take it that you believe this is a regular wood cutting blade. The teeth on this are larger than a normal blade this size with a very forward rake. It would be quite aggressive if used on wood. I was wondering if it was for some other material.

This is a CV (ChroomVanadium) blade for wood used before TC tipped sawblades where on te market or to expensive. Also sawmills have used this type of sawblad despite that for a long time TC sawblades where on the market. This for the iron in the wood. And also hobyists have used CV sawblades for a long time after TC was intoduced simply because a TC blade was te expensive. CV blades are easy to sharpen. The aggrisive teeth where commen for this type of sawblade. If you make a TC sawblade with the same geometry the tooth will be damaged very quickly. Jigsaws, wood chisels and so on are still often equipped with CV tools/steel.

“What kind of saw blade is this?” I thought that was a pretty broad bush. I didn’t know just what you were after.

Dutchy gave you an excellent answer it would seem. Much better than I could have even if I had known what you were after.

I’d use it for a rip blade on my skill saw. I can resharpen it quickly and re-set the teeth with a hammer over a block of steel. I still have a few laying around but pitched most of them now that I use a lot of carbide blades and they are pretty cheap…. but the cheap carbide blades are throw aways and this one i can resharpen.

Looks like the blades I used to see when I was a kid in my Dad’s circular saw he used on job sites. If I had to guess I’d say it was for cutting construction lumber that couldn’t be cut in a single pass. Those big gullets would be needed in a blind cut.

It’s definitely high quality no matter what.
A cheap blade would not have had a hole to hang it from. :)

I have a RAS and the blade looks a lot like that. Probably from that era.

I have never seen such an aggressive tooth in a blade this small but I searched again today, adding “vintage” to the search string and found one. Jim is right, it is a rip blade.

?
