Crescent Circular Saw Blades

Crescent NailSlicer, FineCut, and SteelSlicer Blades Cut to the Chase

Pros need their circular saw blades to be strong, sharp, reliable, and efficient. But, according to Crescent, plenty of trade professionals will settle for imprecise blades that wear down quickly or warp under extreme use. Crescent NailSlicer, FineCut, and SteelSlicer Circular Saw Blades are designed for a variety of specific uses we outline below.

What is Crescent Saying About the Precision Circular Saw Blades?

It’s surprising how often professionals in the trades who have such high expectations for themselves just put up with inferior saw blades that break or lose their edge far too soon. We took it as a challenge, and our new blades deliver in every way they didn’t think possible.

Crescent offers 57 Circular Saw Blades over 10 different categories, including framing, finishing, metal, demolition, and more. Of particular interest are the Crescent NailSlicer, FineCut, and SteelSlicer Circular Saw Blades.

Crescent NailSlicer Framing Blades

The Crescent NailSlicer Framing Blades are designed for framers, general contractors and construction workers, residential builders, and more. They feature the High Impact carbide teeth and Active Shield blade coating that Crescent claims will extend the blade’s lifespan by 70%, even when working with nail-embedded wood, OSB, LVL, and shingles. Laser-cut expansion slots reduce blade warping, while the alternating tooth bevel provides greater cutting efficiency with less kickback.

Crescent FineCut Finishing Saw Blades

Crescent designed the FineCut Finishing Blades for woodworkers, trim carpenters, and flooring installers. With Precision alternating-bevel carbide teeth, Crescent claims that these blades offer 40% smoother cutting with less splintering and tear-out. They also feature laser-cut expansion slots that prevent burning the finishes of your workpieces, and anti-vibration slots make for smoother cutting with less noise. We’ve been told that these blades offer 10x the life that competitors’ blades offer as well.

Crescent SteelSlicer Saw Blades

Designed for iron workers, metal workers, and commercial electricians, the Crescent SteelSlicer blades offer Heat Defense cermet teeth to stand up to the rigors of metal cutting. The Active Shield coating provides 40% cooler cuts, while the laser-cut vibration slots provide smoother cuts with greater accuracy.
