    SO glad you upped that thread!
    I thought it was just me, I do a lot of piercing of quite thick silver and find the blades go blunt really quickly ( Vallorbe from Cooksons).
    Suttons have them in the old style packaging so I may order some from there and see how they are.

    wouldn't be so bad with Euro findings if they didn't automatically add £8.50 postage, even small things.

    Hi Wallace,

    There's hardly a working day goes by without my sawframe being used and I've been handed sawblades to try from various shops in "The Jewellery Quarter " personally I didn't like any of them, I've also noticed that the same blade performs differently when changing sawframes.

    The blades I use are "Dart" round back manufactured in Germany purchased in Ipswich.

    Okay "Dart" sawblades. .... I gave Mick & Nick a call today 01473657070 in Ipswich nick@asic-sa.com company name E.M.C
    I told them I was going to put the information on this site and they said "no problem" I also asked about the post and packaging
    they said it was free in the British Isles.

    My heads on the block ! they work for me hopefully they will be good for you (don't forget to use beeswax for lubrication on your blade)
