Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by patioguy Turbo Diamond Blade cuts Concrete Blocks with ease!
I am doing a sand and paving stone patio addition, and needed a blade that could cut the patio paving stones. This blade was the answer, it easily fitted on my circular saw, and then worked effortlessly and quickly to cut the 8 x 16 inch edging blocks. I also cut a rounded area in one paving stone to fit around a gutter drain pipe by drilling some holes in the curve, then cutting slots into each hole from the edge, finally breaking the individual strips thus formed by prying with a screwdriver.
I never expected so easy a solution to the fitting problem.
I am very happy with this blade and recommend it highly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DITdidItrythat Worked for me on Unilock wall and pavers
I bought this to use for cutting Unilock wall block for a DIY wall project. I bought it and used it with the Ryobi 13amp 7 1/4 saw. I actually figured this would be a one time use and at $55 total it was still less than renting a stone saw and it gave me flexibility on the time I took to complete the job. So being a "throw away" saw didn't feel so bad.
Not only did it complete my project with ease, I loaned it to a friend who used it to make all the edge cuts on a 20X20 Unilock paver patio. Probably 100+ paver cuts.
It's not a $100 diamond blade nut it works better than I would have thought. It did lose that "hot knife through butter" feel after a while, but never enough to make me consider a replacement, for a DIY'er this should be more than sufficient and at a much lower price than some others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HobbyGuy Diamond Blade Cutting Granite Counter Top
I had to make two straight cuts on a piece of granite counter top which were 16 and 22 inches in length. I placed masking tape on the cut line to help mark the cut and to reduce chip outs. I also made a fence out out scrap wood to help guide the handsaw. I made three cuts on each line each line, .5 inch depth, 1 inch depth, and the remainder. While I was cutting my wife followed along the cutline with a small amount of water spray from a garden tank sprayer. This action created a slurry of wet stone dust versus creating a dust storm. It also helpted to keep the blade cooler.
The end result was a straight cut with a small amount of chip outs. I was quoted a charge of $80 to have the stone cut professionally so I felt that it was well worth the work.
Also don't forget to wear eye (face shield is good) and hearing protection in case the unexpected happens. We did not have problems with the cutting process.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PicRic Cuts Asphalt Easily
I needed to cut across an asphalt driveway to complete the installation of an invisible dog fence. This circular saw blade was recommended to me and it worked fine. I was able to slice through the asphalt easily and work my way across about 10' of driveway. The job did not take very long, probably less than 20 minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jorge BEST TIME SAVING PURCHASE THIS YEAR
I am installing Hardie board siding and have purchased Diablo Hardie blades prior to this ,and they spark and burn and smell like burnt fireworks and take a long tome to cut the material. One day I saw this blade and said why not it can't be worse, results in the best blade I have bought for Hardie board cutting and the price was good. The only problem is the arbor slips , so I knocked it out and bought a diamond arbor.

I needed to cut three pieces of concrete block. This was a relatively inexpensive solution that worked well. Now I will have it in my tool shed for future needs.
