In the automotive sector, it is not uncommon to see two brands belonging to the same manufacturer targeting different market segments while sharing many similar processes and components (Honda/Acura, Nissan/Infiniti, Toyota/Lexus, etc.).
The same analogy also exists in cutting tools with Diablo®/Freud. While the Freud brand is rather associated with industrial uses, i.e. thicker carbide, wider kerf and more elaborate choice, the Diablo® brand is aimed mainly at contractors and remodelers as well as small workshops.
One thing is for sure, with Diablo®, you are sure to get your money's worth.

Diablo's general purpose blade is ideal for cutting oak, pine, plywood, pressure treated lumber and beams. An excellent choice for table & miter saws, Diablo's blade leaves a smooth cut in a variety of applications, reducing the need to change blades between tasks. Use it for rip cuts with a smoother finish than dedicated ripping blades, or make quality crosscuts in solid wood or plywood. Great for both sliding and “chop” style miter saws as well as table saws.
- TiCo™ Hi-Density carbide specifically designed for each application to increase performance
- Perma-SHIELD® Non-stick Coating protects from heat, gumming, & corrosion
- Super thin laser cut kerf for fast, durable, and clean cuts
- Tri-metal shock resistant brazing allows carbide tips to withstand extreme impact for maximum durability
- Hardened Steel Body – warrants a longer life and sharper cutting edge.
