Gee, I don’t know about that Mike.

I’m sure it will make a nice foundation for a decorative wall clock to hang in your shop.

Yes, you can bend it back… but don’t expect it to perform as it did before you bent it. Use it while you are waiting for your new blade to arrive, and on stuff where an imperfect cut doesn’t matter, like on roughing blanks and rough cutting patterns/dimensional stock.

Cheers,
Brad

Doh! Now I see. It’s a band saw blade! I missed that part. I thought I was looking at the edge of a table saw blade.

I’m ashamed.

You can try two crescent wrenches. Pliers are OK too but are more likely to marr the blade.
