I am trying build a good general purpose bow saw but I have not found a source for blades in the 1” wide X 18”-24” in rip tooth. Does anyone have a source they can share

I use a butcher-saw blade on my bowsaw and refiled
the teeth for ripping. You could spend hours searching
in vain for a good ripping blade. I recommend you file
one yourself.

Thanks for ideas. I will look for a butcher-saw or 1” band saw. I did check Tools for Woodworking they have a great looking Gramercy saw but I do not find a rip blades. Thanks for the ideas. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah.
