That blade is too thick to be just used for scoring. The special cut and the rust suggests that its a wet cutter for solid surface cutting.

Maybe… but if you follow the link I gave above, it shows an 8” blade almost identical, with the same 3/8” kerf width, specifically for the task mentioned. And it is described as “Carbide Tipped V-groover for scoring and folding applications” (and is way expensive!! :)

Rust just indicates it hasn’t been used for a long while. I’ve had TS blades that were as rusty or rustier still installed on the saw when purchased, and certainly not used in a wet environment. Nothing that a little evapo-rust or electrolysis won’t take care of though.
