The Avanti Pro 7-1/4 in. x 18-Tooth Fast-Framing Circular Saw Blade is designed specifically for professional contractors. It produces clean cuts in softwood, pressure-treated beams and oriented-strand board (OSB). It has a thin-kerf edge and friction-reducing rim coating to resist binding and drag. The durable-construction carbide reinforcement extends the life of this blade up to twice that of standard steel blades.
