ONE TOUGH BLADE: Is This The World’s Toughest Circ Saw Blade?

The world of circular saw blades is like poker. The longer the hand goes on, the higher the stakes get. The made-in-Italy Diablo Tracking Point blade is a perfect example.  It’s the latest offering in an old tool category, and it’s the fastest, toughest, straightest cutting circ saw blade I’ve used so far. There are some great saw blades out there from many brands, but Diablo has upped the ante with this one, both for crosscuts and rip cutting. What makes the difference? Metallurgy, tooth shape and polymer-filled vent slots. This thing might as well be a metal blade seeing how it plows through deck screws. Click below to watch the video and see for yourself.

The Tracking Point name comes from a unique tooth profile. While most of the teeth have alternating bevels, every third tooth comes to a wide-angle point in the middle. It’s this unique tooth that keeps the saw tracking straight. In tests I ran ripping 2x lumber, Tracking Point was faster than I’ve seen and more resistant to vibration and binding. The blade also stood up amazingly well to embedded deck screws. Diablo makes other carbide blades specifically for cutting solid steel, so they obviously know how to handle metal.
