Forrest Mfg.'s 20-tooth, 10" Woodworker II saw blades make rip cuts in hardwoods without leaving burn or scorch marks, according to the company.

“There is a substantial demand for these blades,” company vice president Jay Forest said in a statement. “They are perfect for use on cherry, maple, oak, hickory, mahogany, and various exotics, as well as on other types of hard, dense wood. These circular saw blades consume the wood quickly to provide fast-feed cuts along the grain. They have fewer teeth than other Woodworker II blades so there is less buildup of heat as the blade cuts through the wood. This substantially reduces the need for sanding because of burning or scorching.”

The blades have a 5/8” bore and are available with a standard 1/8” kerf or with an optional 3/32” kerf. Both blades have a list price of $77.
