Different Kinds of Saw Blades

Think of saw blades like knives.  You can do everything with a Swiss army knife.  However a machete makes cutting brush easier.  A chef knife, boning knife and paring knife make cooking easier. And so on.

A combination saw blade is like a Swiss army knife.  If you are serious about the quality of your cuts you will be much happier with a specific blade.  A rip blade is faster, for example.  A plywood blade will typically give cleaner cuts and so on.

A combination blade may have an ATB (alternate top bevel) grind.  You may get a cleaner cut with an ATBR (added Raker), a High ATB, or an ATAF (Alternate Top, Alternate Face).

There are maybe two dozen classes of saw blades divided by type of machine, material being cut and other application specific functions.  There are maybe ten types of saw tip grinds.  There are maybe a eight or ten types of carbide and advanced material tips (Cermet 2 and Super C for example) used.  That is over a thousand kinds of blades
