I’m sorry to keep asking questions!

I have read the reviews of the woodslicer blades and they seem to be awesome as a resawing blade. I’m needing a good all purpose blade as I’m not thrilled with the one that came with my Grizzly 14” Ultimate Bandsaw (3/8”).

I hate to just throw money at different blades trying to find one that works as an all purpose blade.

You will be much happier with the woodslicer compared to the junk stock blade.
Timberwolf blades are good too.

Will they work as an all purpose blade or just as a resawing blade? I live about 30 mins from Highland. I should probably just go visit them

They are really just a resaw blade, though when I was reading around deciding which blades to pop for I came across a number of threads in various forums where users said they were happy using the blades for general duties, including gentle curve cuts.
I have just got the Kerfmaster blades from Spectrum Supply which I was advised are made from the same band stock as the Woodslicers but are a fair bit cheaper. Haven’t had chance to try one out yet as needed to get a finer blade on the saw today but I have a 3/8”, I will put it on my saw tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

I use timberwolf blades for general purpose work.
Woodslicers are more for resawing.
Highland probably has a good general purpose blade too.

I use Carter Accuright blades for general cutting … save the Woodslicer for resawing.

I listened to the chair builder Hal Taylor and bought a diamond blade 3/8” 3tpi. The blade works great, have resawn the capacity of my bandsaw at 12 inches with a beautiful cut and 2”radius curves in 8/4 red oak for dresser feet. I would not use another blade now
