Purchased this blade at the request of my stone mechanic extraordinaire (aka "Tile Guy") to cut black granite 12" X 12" pieces into 3" wide strips on his very expensive Ridgid wet saw. The second we installed it, it wobbled terribly, and my guy drove to Home Depot and bought a Dewalt one for a few dollars more. Disappointing. Also, my tile guy is not a wacko. His work has been featured in Architectural Digest, and he's won awards at Coverings (Google this) many times, so what he's saying about the blade is legit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZ37 A must have for porcelain tile
In a recent kitchen remodel I installed 18” x 18” porcelain tiles with stone trim. The average diamond blade leaves unsightly chips along the cut edge of porcelain but gives a clean cut on stone. I had bought this special blade specifically for the porcelain tile cuts and I am happy that I did. The cuts were the cleanest I have ever seen having only micro-chips along the edge, almost unnoticeable. I had prepared for this as well having bought an Archer #200 grit dry diamond polishing pad. Just a few passes with the pad at medium speed on my drill and the edge looked and felt like a factory finish. I highly recommend this blade for super clean cuts.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JackinNH Great blade with no splintering
This is a really nice blade for the nicer pocelain tile. I had my normal diamond blade but it was causing a ton of chipping and splintering on the porcelain and also my glass tile blocks but when I switched over to this blade I got great cuts without the problems from the older blade. Now with that said it's possible the other blade was just a little older but I don't remember it cutting quite this nice even when new.

Cutting ceramic tile for my countertops was a breeze. I own a tile cutter, but this blade runs circles around it.
This QEP Black Widow Diamond Blade did not wobble or chip my tile as I laid it out for cutting. I am not sure how it was designed, but I found it to be the answer for my saw. Most DIYers use a 10 inch blade vs a 12 inch, so it meets our needs. After reading about the blade I thought I would give it a try. So glad I did. Home Depot struck a winner with this one.:

Nothing makes a job go "smoother" than a nice new blade. This one works GREAT!! You can tell when it is time for a new blade when you start to see small chips on the surface as you are cutting your tile. If you are seeing BIG chips then you should have already replaced your blade. Be sure you are using the correct blade for the material you will be cutting. This blade is designed for porcelain, marble, granite and ceramic tile. If you will be cutting pavers, you will want a blade designed specifically for pavers. Also, make sure you get the correct diameter blade for your saw.
Changing your blade should be simple.
1 Unplug your saw
2 remove the safety shield
3 remove the large nut and washers holding the blade in place (be sure to check the direction of the threads. This may have left-handed threads)
4 Install the new blade making sure you have it on the proper way so the rotation is correct (if necessary)
5 re-install the nut and washers
6 re-install the safety shield
7 plug in your saw

Purchased this blade to cut 24 " ceramic tiles with my wet saw. The cuts produced less chips than my previous Dewalt blade. The blade sharpness also seemed to last longer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ClaireS Needed to cut some pathway bricks!
The cut was perfect! I only had to go one pass to get a nice clean cut on the red bricks that are lining the flowerbed path. We were able to cut 20 bricks and the blade was still not dull!
