I was just Googling. I wonder if Starrett brand ar the king of hacksaw
blades! :c)

But, does your regular hobbyist buy them? I suppose some do.

I'm just cutting mild steel.

Might get a couple of Starrett blades. About 6.50 inc. shipping.

I just bought a pack of 10 Eclipse blades and they are great. Still on my
first one and no sign of it slowing down yet.

We are currently working our way through a 100 box of Starrett blades
but I still think the Eclipse are best.Or,at least they were the last
time I bought them.
ISTR that they are now Chinese owned and probably manufactured there
too.

Personally I'll never buy Starrett hacksaw blades again, after a batch
I had a few years ago that shed teeth like they were made of glassI.
I may have just got a bad batch, but they were defintely OEM Starrett
and not chinese copies, but since then I used Bacho (Bahco-Sandvik?)
or Eclipse blades with no problems.

I tend to just use Bi-metal blades, rather than the all-hard HSS
blades.

Scrapman dropped me a box of 100 in the other day, forgot the name,
never heard of them before but made in England and donkeys years old
by the box.
I'll try one this afternoon now this post has jogged my memory.

Lennox make good saw blades, hand and machine. Starrett is junk in my
book.

OK these blades are made by Balfors in Sheffield, marked up as
Tungsten steel, if anyone offers you some - run away.
Brand new blade this afternoon, cut two M6 machine screws and
struggled to cut thru the second. Blade now totally shagged. Proves it
wasn't just the Chinese that could make rubbish, seems we also had our
own efforts at it as well. <g>

The best blades I have seen were progressive teeth (can not remember
brand) but the teeth were fine in front and course at back.
You can still get them but they are extremely expensive.
