Do you know what blade stock Nevada Carbide uses?

The benefit of carbide is two-fold, they will produce a better finish off the saw (most important with veneer cutting) and will last 20-25 times as long as a carbon blade and can be easily sharpened 4-5 times at a cost of about $50. So if you use them enough they are far more economical than carbon blades. They are also easier to find in variable pitch grinds which reduce harmonic vibrations which is part of the increase in finish quality They do require roughly twice the tension of a carbon steel blade so you have to be careful in matching them with the saw.
