Best 10 Inch Blade for Cutting Plywood

When it comes to cutting plywood, a 10-inch blade with a high tooth count is ideal for achieving smooth and precise cuts.

Tooth count: Look for a blade with a high tooth count, ideally 60 or above, for smoother cuts. Blades with a lower tooth count can cause splintering and tear-outs.

Blade type: A carbide-tipped blade will last longer and stay sharper than a regular steel blade. You can also consider a triple-chip grind (TCG) or an alternate top bevel (ATB) blade for better results.

Blade thickness: Thicker blades are sturdier and can handle tougher cuts, but they may also cause more kerf (material waste). A blade with a thickness between 0.1 and 0.125 inches should be suitable for cutting plywood.

If you want to cut materials like hardwood, the Forrest WW10407125 Woodworker II 10-Inch 40 Tooth ATB .125 Kerf Saw Blade with 5/8-Inch Arboris ideal for intricate designs and art applications. The blade is also designed with reverse teeth for clean, sharp edges on top and bottom surfaces with a sand-free finish.


I bought this after reading all the positive reviews because I literally have a ton of hard maple to rip and am building lots of cabinets requiring furniture-grade ply. I want accurate cuts with no tear-out.

The carbide tips feel and look of premium quality. The blade is noticeably heavier than my other 4 blades. The heft of the blade compared to others probably accounts for half of the ripping power this blade offers due to its rotational mass. It would slice your finger off with no problem.

Overall I have used it for 2 days of cutting so far and definitely notice a difference over the other premium blades that I had bought before spending the money on this.

I am using a crosscut sled to cut my cabinet bottoms and stretchers to the exact length. When using this I am getting torn out on the bottom of the plywood. I did not get this tear out with my other 60-tooth blade.

It is noticeable. However, when not using the cross-cutting sled and ripping the same plywood it saws flawlessly through the wood. My feed rate has increased without a doubt.

It leaves a good edge on the maple and is certainly a better cut than the 24-tooth blade I was using before. Is it the all-in-one blade??? I would have to say no.

I am not all that satisfied with the crosscut on the ply. It does the job just fine on hardwoods though. So all in all, if you are using this for hardwoods it is exceptional. If you are ripping, this blade is perfect. My only beef is that the crosscut on the plywood is not where I need it to be.

I will use my 60 teeth for this. Overall I believe it is a great addition to my shop and it will be in the saw 75 percent of the time. I am surprised more people do not have this issue. And yes, it is a zero clearance kerf on the sled. (convert into a review)

These blades are a great buy for a home DIYer. I haven’t used them for the job site yet, but my home projects have shown little tare with smooth cross cuts on the miter and table saws.

A little warning for that perfectionist, Yellow paint will stay on your work for the first few cuts. When paint wares off the carbide teeth those yellow ends will go away. I most likely wouldn’t use them to rip any wood, but in a pinch, I’m sure you could get the job done with these blades.

I prefer a blade with a deeper gullet and with fewer teeth for ripping. The hook angle is +7deg, I didn’t see this in the description so I hope that will help someone out there.

This blade excels as a sliding miter saw for trim carpentry applications. It produces cuts that are glue-ready and wastes a minimum of material. It will handle heavier materials, though with some effort. I have used it on 2x for framing and even the occasional PT, and it does fine, albeit rather slowly, as one would expect from an 80t blade. It does fairly well on plywood. But what it really shines at is crosscuts in fairly thin material, like 1x boards and moldings. The cuts are just gorgeous and blowouts are minimal, even with fairly delicate finger-joint pine millwork. It is manufactured in Thailand.
