Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cutworm Awesome Blade
I used this blade last weekend to trim door jambs when installing ceramic tile for my daughter. It made nice smooth cuts and made the tile installation look professional. Additionally I tiled around a fireplace and trimmed the bottom of the mantel so the tile could slip underneath the mantel. It cut smoothly and quickly. Being carbide it does cost a little more but having to stop working to go get a new blade because yours just went up in smoke is costly in time and effort. I made about 10 cuts with this blade - mostly maple - and it still looks and feels new. I would have used 2 steel blades cutting this amount of maple. It's awesome.

The Bosch 1-3/4 in. Carbide Plunge Blade is worth a the few extra pennies it costs vs the non-Carbide models. The manufacturer states that this Carbide blade has a lifespan 30x that of a standard non-Carbid blade. I have used this particular blade with my Bosch oscillating tool to cut drywall, sheer off the excess threaded bolts from a toilet install, and plunge cut into plywood subfloor. The blade continues to impress and cut through material as if it were brand new. I had never used one of the Carbide blades due to the increased cost... now, I doubt I will ever buy anything else as this blade has already done the work of 3 non-Carbide blades and is still rocking it. I highly recommend this plunge blade.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fxp1 One tough blade
The Bosch 1-3/4 in. Carbide Plunge Blade is a welcome addition to my other multi-tool blades. I used it with my Porter-Cable multi-tool and the tool's adapter for other blade manufacturers. The blade is wider compared to standard blades and is carbide that has those fine teeth which I've learned is plenty tough and will be around for a while cutting through metals. Its an excellent choice for old wood where you might run into a buried nail. Because of its width its closer to the half circle blade which is not as precise in starting a cut. Because of the angularity of the edge on this Bosch blade it can be better controlled and then will cut along once started. Prior to this I've had to change out blades after first starting the cut with a standard plunge blade. This is not my first Bosch blade and they have given me great service.

This is an ideal blade for cutting the bottom section of door trim at the threshold when you are installing laminate flooring, among other things. Paring a slice of the trim away, allows the laminate to slide under, making for an attractive installation. If you have ever performed this task with a hand-saw, you will be amazed at how much more easily the job can be completed in just a couple of minutes without breaking a sweat by using a vibrating tool equipped with the proper blade (see picture).
I had been using the stock blade that came with my Dremel power tool, and was only able to saw through about 4 door trim locations before the blade started to dull and burn wood. At that point, it became a chore to muscle the saw through the wood. I consumed 2 of those blades before trying this Bosch carbide blade. Although I had only 4 more trim locations to complete, after using this blade, the blade still looks new. The Bosch blade sliced through the wood with greater ease and precision than did the Dremel stock blades I had been using when they were new.
I don’t have any remaining trim to complete, so I cannot comment on the long-term durability of the blade, but my sense from having used it, is that it will probably last many times longer than a conventional blade, making it a better value over the long run.
Please note that I needed to purchase a Bosch multi-tool blade adapter in order to use this blade on my Dremel tool (no, a Dremel adapter will not work to fit a Bosch blade on a Dremel tool, you need to buy an adapter that is made by the same company that makes the blade or other attachment). However the cost of both brand’s adapters were under $1 and in-stock at my local HD. The Bosch adapter causes the Bosch blade to mount slightly offset on my Dremel tool (see picture), but I was still able to use the tool effectively.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PJCC Excellent Cut, but most dangerous blade I've ever used as a DIYer.
I received a Bosch branded Blade, pictured. It attached easily to my multitool and the package says it fits all multifools. Use safety glasses, clean up metal shavings to prevent injury to anything small, animals or human.
This was ordered because I had an emergency safety situation that I had to take care of myself. My water main was buried under the roots of an Oak Tree, the cover no longer fits, a child had fallen into it. It is known to me that my entire neighborhood has complained about mutiple water safety issues and the county I live in ignores them. I had to figure out how to cut metal to raise the face plate safely slightly above the box.
Two pieces of metal had to be cut. The aluminum was easy to cut, I did not just use it to plunge through the metal but I used it to cut a frame to go around the water lit. I then used a heavier sheet of metal that will sit on top of the box so a window had to be cut in that metal to keep it open to view the meter. I used very thin sheet metal.
When making the cut the blade would fall through the metal and not pull out again. The top of the blade has a ridge. The ridge and tapered blade provided resistance to it being pulled back out of the metal. The vibrating metal made it hard to turn the multitool off at the same time I was cutting, hence dangerous.
The precautions on the package were limited to general safety. I found the blade hard to control once it went through the heavier metal.
I've cut metal to redo computers and also as a metal scrapper. Metal art is also something I do for art projects, I like both the compact size and easy cut. I would not recommend using this for any projects until you find an online tutorial dealing with safety issues.
