yes. It cuts better than my other blades (CMT, Dimar, Festool) and seems to last a long time between sharpenings. Mind you, I just found a new local supplier that swears their blades are equal to the best out there at 2/3 the price… I’ll try them out and see. Generally speaking it seems that you get what you pay for. I bought a couple of cheap blades and well, they cut like cheap blades. Also, way less carbide which meant only 1-2 sharpenings. I only use the Forrest on the 7 1/2" saw which is only used for finishing cuts so that helps it last a long time! lol

I’m really liking my two saw on one bench set up. Rough or big stuff on the 12" beast and then the fine stuff on the mini saw
