At one time the Diablo blades were made in Italy from the same materials, on the same machines, and to the same standards as the Freud Industrial line….they just had less carbide and offered fewer choices. Not sure if that’s still true, as I’ve heard some claims that at least some of the Diablo line is now made in China.

The Irwin Marples, CMT ITK Plus, Tenryu Rapid Cut, and DeWalt Precision Trim series are all decent value for performance and price. I would not recommend the Avanti or Avanti Pro blades for fine woodworking…just not enough better than a stock OEM blade to bother with.
