Topic tags/keywords: question denali saw blades

I noticed these blades on Amazon and they are not a brand that I am familiar with.

They seem very deeply discounted so I was attacted to the price if the quality is there.

Has anyone here experinces with them?

Hi Bob;

I’ve never heard if them as a saw blade, but they make a nice car!

Outstanding prices – I would’nt mind the 12” for my RAS, unfortunately Amazon do not ship tools overseas.

Lee, they also make a great big mountain. (mckinnley) <g>
Used to be a beacon for the indians to travel trhough the pass up in the Alaska country.
In those days you couldn’t get there by Denali.

Ask one of your buddies in the U.S. to ship it to you. UPS will get it to you pretty fast as will fedex.

Don’t know the brand. Just guessing based on the price I’d say the blade is a poor quality blade made in China and sold under many private labels. Similar to Harbor freights blades. I up side of buying blades like these is that they are cheap so you do feel too bad when you trash one. On the other hand, you won’t get nearly as smooth a cut or life out of the blade as you would with a Freud or Forrest.

Dave, it’s odd that Amazon would list them as having a retail of up to $129.00???
They could be “shlock” but not what one would expect from Amazon
Who knows today.
I have a couple of those China blades and theyare o.k. for milling rough lumber.
I don’t feel as guilty when I hit a nail here and there either. <g>

I was looking at their clamps a wihle back. The reviews didn’t look so great. Maybe the blades are a different storry, but they do make other products so maybe that will help in your research.

I checked the website too and couple of the reviews were not too charitable.
I suspect that they (denali) are a marketing group that makes deals with China, India etc for low end tools.
The ones I am most familiar with here are Princess Auto and for woodworking Samona .
You do get what you pay for but there are times when that is all you need.
A pro couldn’t use this stuff as the half life is too short.
An amateur could have the benefits for several years.
As most, if not all, circular saw blades are laser cut on mid grade steel and tipped with M2 carbide I have a hard time justifiying $125.00 for a 12” CMS blade unless I am doing Crown molding for a living.
I also can’t see why an extra 2” of mid grade steel could make the blade twice as expensive as a comparable 10” .

I’m going to bite the bullet for $25.00 at Amazon and will review it when it comes.
