Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Captainrick Cuts steel like hot butter!
I looked at all the bi-metal cutting blades at Home Depot and finally decided on the Milwaukee brand. My main purpose for these blades was to cut 4, 4x4 1/4 inch steel posts and my hope was that I wouldn't use all 5 blades to get the job accomplished. Much to my amazement the first blade cut through the steel like it was hot butter. The first blade cute though the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th post with no trouble at all. I can honestly say that the first blade is still sharp enough to tackle 4 more steel posts. The other 4 blades are still in their nice plastic case ready for action. These blades are incredible and they are the best product I've bought in many years!

I needed to cut an old cast iron water pipe. I read up on the best method, which was renting a breaker. The reason is that saw blades are so slow and I would need several blades. So I tried these and got ready for a slow and miserable job. But I was done in a few minutes, and the original blade I used is still ready for more.

I needed to cut a 4" pipe with a 1/4" thick wall to length, to mount a custom bbq on. Really thought I would need a cutting torch but not owning one I decided to try these out. They worked great! Once you get it started it easily cut thru the entire pipe, cutting both sides the length of the blade. I made two cuts with one blade, it was pretty worn out after that but it did the job.

I have bought these before and liked them then, this time it was no different. I purchased them to cut an 8" I-beam down, and they did the job without issue. Very sharp and fast cutting with good blade life.

Conveniently packaged in a reusable container, to keep the extra blades from floating around the tool box, these blades cut though steel like cheese. They cut true, not bending or veering off of the cutting line, even when being pushed hard. Especially useful with a variable speed saw, to permit finding the "sweet spot" where the blade moves through the workpiece with little effort. When cutting across the two sides of a piece of channel, the blade cut true on both sides, with no tendency to bind or bend. After multiple test cuts, the blade cut the same on the last cut as on the first one, leaving a clean cut edge. Even when "pushing" the blade (too fast and too hard) there was no scoring or burning and no noticeable damage to the teeth.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Franztini My 'go to' blades!
These long blades are my go to for everything from notching lumber to cutting through nails. They are great blades, For tighter/ackward places, the 12" blade by the same manufacture are awesome as well. The 12" gives you a little bit more flexibility in those tight spaces. As with all blades none last as long as you would like but I've reused them many times. I recommend these blades, and the 10 pack is a great value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vovo A good product
Not often do I need to cut metal. So I tried a blade on a couple of different pieces I had around the house. It proved to be durable, precise and efficient. The blade grabbed quickly on my mark and did not skip around.
I had another project in mind to try it out, but that project has been delayed. However, from my tests I am confident that these will perform well.
The blade I used is still sharp and available for more projects. So I cannot speak to how long it remains sharp.

Bought Torch blades to cut a 4" iron drain pipe. The pipe was from the 1920s and was standard weight of about 10lbs per foot. I had to make three cuts and the first two were relatively quick and easy. Used one blade for each cut. The third cut was much harder to make. It had an area about 1.5 inches across that the blades just would not cut. I finished it off by breaking it.
I think the torch blades were not the problem and even a diamond blade would not have made that cut. I tried a shorter diamond blade that I'd been using for smaller pipe and it did nothing.
I'd recommend using the torch blades for this application but hope you don't have pipe like the third cut I had to make. By the way, I'd cut the same pipe about 4 ft away and had no trouble.
