Best Cold Saw Blades for Cutting Stainless Steel

We often get calls from customers who want their HSS cold saw blades to stay sharp longer when cutting stainless steel or similar materials that are hard on blades.

There are M2 HSS drill bits and there are HSS drill bits that contain cobalt. The bit (or blade in our case) that contains cobalt will always stay sharp longer than it would without cobalt. M35 blades are made from M35 tool steel containing...
