An all-around bandsaw blade

Review Summary

The Diemaster 2 blade is rated for mild steel. This means that pushing wood through the blade really isn't going to phase it much. It remains sharp long after other traditional wood cutting blades I've used would have needed to be replaced. It's also a great thing to have a metal cutting blade on the bandsaw for times when, say, you need to cut a piano hinge to length.
You don't have to worry about destroying your blade in the process. The Diemaster comes in 3, 4 and 6 TPI configurations for wood, in addition to the high tooth count models that are more traditional for metal work. I have owned and used Timberwolf, Woodslicer and Olson blades. The Lenox Diemaster 2 leaves them all in the dust for longevity and performance when resawing. It's got the best performance of any blade I've used to date.
