Biggest difference is the size & quality of the carbide and also the geometry & quality of the sharpening. So for your $40 or so with the Freud you are getting bigger/higher quality carbide teeth and better sharpening geometry. The Freud can be resharpened a couple of times at least but there’s probably not enough carbide on the stock blade.
