Larry
I used cooks excel blades (20 of them).  I am now using thier super sharp 8 degree blades.  I like them better and as I also use a dremal to sharpen while the blade is on the mill.  I find it easier to sharpen the super sharp blades then I did the exels.  I bought the silver not the black.
These are the only two blades I have ever used and so can't say I have tested them against other brands.
Cheers

Here is the log I was sawing when I tried to cut the log stop off LOL I also ruined my last blade. I was surprised how far it cut into the log stop all 1/4 steel with a Cooks 10 degree blade

Started the rebuild on the 20 hp Kohler Command backup engine I picked up it looks nasty on the outside but it only has a hundred hours on it sat outside it's whole life but inside is like brand new. My friend ran it on his stump grinder and ran straight pipes and no muffler and it burned up the oil rings and started smoking. I am just waiting on the rings and gaskets to come in and it will replace the 16 hp engine that is on the saw mill now, boy Kohler parts are pricey. LOL I also got a new tool today
