bandsaw blade timberwolf or highland ww - Juss1 - 07-03-2019

Looking to get a 3/8" bs blade for a 14" bs.  To be used only for curves.  Have larger bs for rips and resaw.  I've heard really good reviews about timberwolf and highland ww brand blades.  Which do you guys suggest.  Also what tpi.  I was leaning towards 6 but should I go higher?

I've been pleased with T-wolf, no experience with Highland.
T-wolf will recommend the best blade for your application so you don't have to guess. They also keep track of what you order and what saw it was for. Saves you from having to remember, big brother in a good way.

Those are the same blade from different outlets.

Any blade made from silicon steel. Lower tension,sharper,lasts longer. Plus a carbide tipped blade for re sawing.

I used both Timberwolf and Highland (woodslicer) blades for years (they are good blades) but since trying a lennox, its a no brainer. Love working with Bandsaw Blades Direct. Super responsive when you need something in a pinch.
