My main purpose is to cut thin stock. I am trying to get pieces at a net of 1/8” thick. The thicker the blade, the more waste there is. Using a circular saw may help.

I can appreciate that. But you have to calculate the savings versus the cost of the blade. That Infinity blade is $160. It is 1/16” kerf versus the 3/32” of a regular thin-kerf blade. You’re saving 1/32” per pass. Do the math to determine the breakeven point.
