Best Pro Tile Saw Blade

Hey Guys,

After about four years and countless tiles cut on the DeWalt blade that was OEM with my DeWalt saw, it's time to replace.

What is the consensus on the best blade? I would say 90% of my work lately is porcelain tile, so want a blade that eliminates the little chips on the cut.

Thanks!

Many good one's out there. On a cost/performance scale, I like the Ramondi T3 Razor. Reinforced hub so it's quite stiff. Downside is that it won't plunge cut quite as deeply.

The Pearl P4 with turbo mesh cuts clean and smooth.

I'll second the T3. Best one I've ever used.

This is a decent one: Haven't had any problems with it. Wore one out, on a second one.

My last 3 blades have been the Pearl P4. I'm sure there are other good blades but Dal tile keeps the Pearl in stock so for me convenience is another reason I keep buying the Pearl.

Is the P4 good for Marble as well? IF not what all is recommended?
