Not great
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We used this to do a little outdoor project and it really wasn't a great blade. This issue was the dust would get in the blade crevices, so it did not cut nicely at all. This was after cutting one piece of wood, and as you can see it got beat up. I wouldn't recommend this blade. It did the job, but poorly.

    Works like a charm!
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just bought a house that had an old deck out back. Nails were coming out and I was able to get them out any other way. This was so easy to cut the nails down and prevent someone from getting hurt. It took no effort on my part other than putting the blade where I wanted it to go. Great product. Now on to tackle the front porch!

      Best saw blade I've ever had!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sawzall The Ax Carbide Blade is the absolute best blade I have ever used! It is very well made. I love the fact that it can cut through multiple materials, which is such a time saver in my line of work. And the fact that it is still going strong after being used multiple days speaks volumes for how amazing this blade really is.

        Must have for demolition!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Milwaukee’s “The Ax” reciprocating saw blade lives up to the quality and performance you’ve come to expect from Milwaukee. This versatile blade is built to power through many different types of construction materials which prevents the user from having to constantly change blades. The blade feels stronger than other blades I’ve used and it didn’t feel like it was going to warp or break when using it. I’ve had a couple other brands of blades that have gotten pinched and warped or snapped when trying to plunge cut but, this blade powers through. All blades have a breaking/warping point but, this blade is stronger thus, less likely to fail. As a lifelong woodworker and currently in the middle of renovating our home, I’ve used a lot of blades and this one is top notch. The carbide teeth power through nail embedded wood as well as concrete board and shingles. The teeth are shaped in a way that adds to their strength and doesn’t affect its ability to perform. I’ve used other blades (meant for nail embedded wood) that will break or dull teeth when hitting nails but, the carbide teeth on “The Ax” didn’t break or dull and it continued to cut quickly and efficiently. The unique tip is perfect for making fast and smooth plunge cuts without a lot of kickback. This is by far the best blade I’ve used and is a must have for demolition/renovation projects. Overall, the quality, versatility and durability of “The Ax” is what you’ve come to expect from Milwaukee. If you’re looking for the best demolition/renovation blade on the market, then grab your “Ax” and get to chopping!

          These blades are magic.
          I know the intention of these blades is nail embedded wood. They passed that test, so I pushed it. They cut 4” cast iron pipe fast (Same blade but longer). I used to go through 4 specialty blades for that task. Yesterday I cut a cast iron tub in half with this blade fairly quickly. It was already dull from months of use. Your choice, 1 Milwaukee AX carbide blade for a few more bucks, or 75 blades from their competitors

          This blade is a beast! I already had the non carbide version of this blade so I can definitely say the carbide version rips through whatever. I definitely think having a high powered saw to use with this blade would be very beneficial. Because it just seemed to want to chew through everything. But I'm using a fuel Sawzall so it's all good to go!

          The 9 inch 5 TPI AX Carbide Teeth Demo Nail Embedded Wood Cutting SAWZALL blades by Milwaukee are absolutely amazing and are well worth the investment. I have really put them to the test of the past couple of months and they have not failed one bit. I have used these blades to cut pallets, cut up some aged deadwood branches as well as on small demolition projects. Nothing stopped these blades. They are about 50% thicker than most blades out there. This helps reduce the chance of bending you blades and adds to the overall durability. Additionally, the “Fang Tip” helps the blade plunge quicker, which will also reduce kickbacks as well as0 the chance of bending the blade. In picture No. 2 you’ll be able to see the thickness of the blade in comparison to another manufacturer. In picture No. 3 you’ll see what the blade looks like after a days worth of use. It is still in great shape, the teeth are intact and sharp and ready for more action.

          Spend a little more and get a blade that will survive the harshest demands. Resurfaced a 25 year old 2x6 treated deck with composite. The undercarriage was still sound so decided to save some bucks by leaving in place.I did have to cut old rusted nails and screws to remove decking which was time consuming but these blades held up to many cuts. Most of the cuts were flat and blade got hot but held up.After all the decking was removed I than cut all the decking to smaller pieces with the same blade without a problem. Milwaukee has set a new standard with these blades. Worth the couple extra bucks.

          The Milwaukee 6 in. 5 TPI AX Carbide Teeth reciprocating saw blade is a versatile blade. I picked up these blades up for demo work around the house but my first use was cutting through several small hardwood stumps in the front yard. The aggressive 6 in. 5 TPI AX Carbide Teeth cut through the small stumps quickly. To cut the stumps, I made several angled cuts into stump combined with a horizontal cut to remove the piece of wood. The carbide teeth cut through the wood with speed and steady progress. The blade design cleared the saw dust with each stroke. Other blades I’ve used would bog down. The blade is referred to as” The Ax with Carbide Teeth” and I agree. I didn’t cut through nails in this use but the tooth design is similar to the Milwaukee blade call “The Torch” so I’m sure nails would not be a problem. I like this blade as a good all-around demolition blade. It cut through wet, dense hardwood with no issues. When required, the “Fang Tip” will provide fast plunging on thin sheet wood. Great multi-purpose demo blade.

          I have used a number of different blades to do Demo work but none have lasted like this style of blade. They last a long time when you are using them and when they hit a nail, its like a hot knife through butter and it just keeps going. The way the blades teeth are set it cuts thru the wood and drywall so much faster that other blades. I like that they are carbide tipped because they cut thru almost anything I have come up against in demoing so many different types of stuff. I also like that they are not wimpy and bend at the first nail or hard material you are cutting. These are some strong blades and I highly recommend them over some of the other brand names out there. They are worth the investment.
