Hi Jordan, cutting metal over 1/2" thick I would normally use like Milwaukee 14 in. x 90 Carbide Teeth Metal Cutting Circular Saw Blade. But have not tried Milwaukee 9 in. 7 TPI Torch Carbide Teeth Metal Cutting SAWZALL Reciprocating Saw Blade as they are a very good thick metal blade.

Blade is painted. Paint can come off. Food service likely has special requirements. So no.

Broke after first 10 minutes of use
I was cutting a suspension bolt off my car like previous reviewers. It made progress getting through the hard material until the blade broke off at the base, leaving me with a still unfinshed cutting job.

won't cut my 2" cast iron pipe
My experiance w/ this blade and cast iron pipe (circa 1976). the blade barely makes dent in the 2" cast iron pipe ... gets so hot that the heat will damage the blade. Using a professional Milwaukee Saz-All. see images ... that small 3/16' cut on the cracked pipe took ~ 4 minutes to cut .... Diablo ... if you have questions please reach out to me...

The saw blade works really well, has a touch of trouble starting to dig into the cut for a few seconds but once it gets in there it cuts through well enough. Used on a 20 volt dewalt reciprocating sawzall and take a minute to get through my yard's old (1930s?) Clothesline T posts. Images and videos attached.

Cuts a 4" cast iron pipe without a problem
After reading mixed reviews on this blade I bought one tonight. I cut through a 4" cast iron sewer pipe relatively easily. I say relatively because if you are expecting it to cut like you are cutting wood you will be disappointed. When cutting metal with a blade with teeth, just like drilling a harder metal, speed and a ton of pressure are not what you need. I started slow with moderate pressure and got the cut started in about 30 seconds. About 2 minutes later I was through the pipe. If you stand on your saw and have it going as fast as it will go, I would imagine you would be unhappy with this blade because it probably won't perform well. I only had one cut to make so I probably pushed it harder than I would have if I needed the blade again. I have tried standard metal blades, the fancy diamond grit blades, and now this carbide tooth blade, and I am happiest with the carbide.

Seemed to work great on thinner steel. I was using a batter powered sawsall with plenty of power. Probably a stronger sawsall with more spm would do better. Does not cut aluminum well at all. Bi metal blades cut better. The softness of the aluminum gums up the carbide teeth.

Absolutely the best SAWZALL blade!!!!!
I have chopped up many many vehicles and I have been a carpenter for over 25 years!!! I have used thousands upon thousands of SAWZALL blades,,and these Diablo blades are awsome!!!!! Hands down!!! I went thru 14 different blades cutting one bolt on a control arm and switched to a Diablo blade and it literally cut thru it in less than 30 seconds!!!!! I'm still amazed!! Thank you for making these blades!!!!

Expectations exceeded! Awesome blade and works as advertised (better, technically). I used these blades to cut off a cast iron pipe sticking out of the concrete floor in my basement. The knuckle joining a fitting to the pipe was right at the floor level, so I was basically cutting through double the thickness; over an inch of cast iron. I was a little worried these blades would do the job, and thought I might have to rent a band type pipe cutter. But the Steel Demon got the job done! It was a burly 20-30 minutes of cutting. As you can imagine, the toughest part was getting the cut started (sawing at a tangent to the pipe surface). I bought the 3 pack, and switched blades periodically to keep the heat down. Not sure I had to do that. But figured it was a good precaution against burning through the blades. By the end of the task, the blades don't show much wear, so can do plenty more. This was above and beyond the metal thickness specified by Diablo (up to 9/16") but the blades handled it with no problems. I also used this blade to cut a small corner (about 1/4-inch) of a steel beam that was sticking past the concrete (not supporting any load at that point) and out of the drywall (don't ask - past owner/builder of my home made some really questionable choices). The Steel Demon cut through it like a regular Sawzall blade through a piece of wood! The manufacturer video included in the product photos look pretty unreal, cutting through thick steel like it was butter (that cliché may be overused - but it applies here!). There is no tricks here. The Steel Demon really does cut through metal that fast, no joke! I would highly recommend this blade for your heavy duty steel cutting needs.

Far exceeded my expectations! I had 28 concrete nails to cut from a sill plate. I tried the Milwaukee torch brand 1st as it was cheaper, but that blade crapped out after 1 nail. The Diablo cut the nails like a hot knife thru butter! 1 blade made it thru 20 nails and would have made it thru the rest had it not broke at the base the teeth still looked good.

This is my new favorite blade for cutting cast iron drain pipe! After years of using diamond grit blades, i recently tried on of these carbide-tipped 8 TPI reciprocating saw blades for the first time. This blade cuts through cast iron pipe like no other. The next time I buy, i will likely opt for one of the longer versions of this blade, which make it easier to cut 4 inch cast iron pipe without the blade bumping the inside of the pipe. This is blade is now my first choice for cutting cast iron.
