Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cmill Good price
For the price, these blades really can't be beat. I was replacing all of the faucets around the house and used these blades to cut through some metal fittings that needed shortened. They work great when new, but dull a bit quicker than I expected. They keep a straight line when cutting, and have not noticed any bending while working with them. Well worth the price.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by joelav22 Starts strong, but finishes fast
I bought these blades to cut up some 3/16 O1 tool steel (free machining). Initially I was impressed. As advertised initial sharpness was great. However not do long into the cut I noticed my hacksaw start to wander from the line quite a bit. Upon inspection I had some nice round teeth. It took 3 of these blades to cut through 12" of the O1 tool steel.
I tried these out based on the description, but I am going to stick to my previous brand that I had much better results with.
I would recommend these blades for brass however. They cut really cleanly through a 2" solid round bar of 360 free machining brass - much cleaner than the blades I prefer for steel. There was little wear on the blade after the cut.
So while the description says they are ideal for tool steel, there are far better (and more economical) options out there.
