Have any of you guy’s used or purchased the Tenryu Gold Medal saw balde for table saws ?? Saw one
review that said he liked it better than the Forrest Woodworker II. Any feedback would be appreciated.
Also, picked up my new Rikon 14” bandsaw today from local dealer. I will try and post pictures of the
assembly, etc. as I unpack and set it up.

I bought my Tenryu Gold 2 1/2 years ago, of course a blade is only as good as a saw. I have yet to resharpen the blade and it still cuts walnut, maple and hickory like butter, very little burn and still as true as the day I got it. I have processed about 2000 bd ft in that time and I am sure all of it went through the table saw at least once or twice.

I have no way to compare it to other blades, I was using the cheapo Craftsman that came with my first used table saw so that is not even close to the higher end blades. I won’t even hesitate when it comes time to buy a new blade.

I think thewoodwhisperer had an episode where he was talking about the Tenryu blade, and had good things to say about it – but he’s still sticking with his Forrest WWII. From his experience, and also FWW blade comparison it seems like it’s a good blade, but not as good as the WWII. but that might have been a different Tenryu blade (they were comparing all the General/Hybrid saw blades

I have one and love it. It makes glue line quality cuts. I have it in for sharpening after a year and a half of use. I caught a brad and chipped a tooth. But this is one fine blade.

I use to work for Tenryu many years ago. They build a very high quality product. You’ll be amazed. If you’d like to try their quality without spending a lot, try one of their 7.25 for circular saws – very impressive!!
