Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZHawg Quality blade for quicker demo work!
The DIABLO DEMO DEMON by Freud is a dynamite reciprocating saw blade for demolition. I used it instead of a circular saw to cut a pressure-treated 4X4 and it cut right on the line with almost no deviance! These 4X4’s were split and then repaired by using number 9 deck screws to fasten some 2X stock on each side. These blades cut right through these sections and barely burped when it cut through the screw!
I tested the plunge ability by cutting through a piece of T-111. The specially designed “finger” on the tip of the blade easily cut a slice through the sheet stock so that the blade could continue its cut through. The other day I had to plunge cut through some T-111 the other day with another reciprocating saw blade without this feature. It as difficult to plunge, and needless to say it did NOT cut as well as the Diablo blade!
Using quality blades makes for quicker and easier work. These blades will make your demo work a LOT easier.

Just finished taking out a framed wall of 2x6's that had enough nails and screws to fill a 5 gallon bucket. (I'm obviously exaggerating, but seriously, it was a lot) I'm quite pleased with how these blades worked out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cb88 Stays sharp and takes abuse.
I used this for cutting up old lumber and pallets for recycling in my woodshop. Cuts through nails without complaint. Did not even feel a difference when it cut through the nails, it just scratched up the paint job, no dulling of the blades.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mikkel1955 It lasts and lasts.
I did manage to wear out one of these blades while doing demo on my sun porch. I discovered some rotted wood while doing some other work, and ended up taking out most of the walls. I hit a lot of nails in the process. While they did slow down the cutting, this blade was able to cut through them without problems. It also worked great on cutting out pieces of a 4"x4". It does not go through drywall screws though. I guess they are too hard. They sure wear down a blade when you try. For most demo work, this blade will work great. If you are going to hit a lot of hardened screws, get the carbide tipped version.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OMW Could be "tougher"
The product claims it's made for "nail embedded wood", but I find that the teeth of these blades wear out far too quickly. I am a home builder and remodeler and I am not too pleased by these blades.
