I was just in my local dealer a few weeks ago buying new Dewalt knives for the 735. I asked about better knives and was told that Dimar makes some. I havn’t checked them out yet, but I was told they are significantly better for not too much more money. Might be worth a check.

I agree with cutnrun about the quality I get from the Dewalt knives, it’s very good, but the problem is they just don’t last long, especially when cutting very hard wood.

Maybe the (very pricey) carbide knives from Infinity are worth it?
