9" 14 Teeth per Inch Sawzall Blade (Package of 5) Ice hardened blades are cryogenically treated to minimize soft metal (austenite) and create more hard metal (marten site). The result is a metal cutting blade that is more consistently hard throughout, for up to 50% longer life than standard blades. Features: 9" Long x 3/4" Wide x .035" Thick 14 Teeth per Inch 1/2" Shank Pack of 5 Ice Hardened for Up to 50% More Life Bi-Metal Construction Since its founding in 1924, Milwaukee has focused on a single vision: To produce the best heavy-duty electric power tools and accessories available to the professional user. Today, the Milwaukee name stands for the highest quality, durable and reliable professional tools money can buy.
The Milwaukee 48-00-4091 Ice Edge Sawzall blade is specifically designed to handle the toughest metal-cutting applications for HVAC, automotive, plumbing, ship building, salvage and more. This next-generation blade features a bi-metal construction with 8-percent cobalt, making the Ice Edge a flexible alternative to other reciprocating blades.

Milwaukee's cryogenic heat-treat process induces a permanent change in the microstructure of the high-speed steel cutting edge, and because it penetrates to the full depth of the blade, this treatment improves the hardness, wear-resistance, and dimensional stability of the blade.
Advantages over TiN (Titanium) Blades
- Cryogenic heat treatment offers a permanent change to blade properties: With TiN coating, the wear rate is accelerated by high temperatures generated during cutting. The Ice Edge blades are less susceptible to high-temperature damage than TiN blades.
- Ice Edge blades receive uniform treatment: TiN coatings are deposited by the PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) method. PVD does not produce a strong bond with the HSS edge wire since PVD is a low-temperature process. Thus, TiN coating easily wears out. It is also difficult to get the uniform coating on the teeth with the PVD process--given the complexity and small size of the teeth--so the full benefit of the TiN coating is not realized on reciprocating blades. Unlike TiN coating processes, the Ice Edge blade treatment results in a uniform, permanent change to the entire blade structure.
This completely redesigned reciprocating blade optimizes metal cutting with precision-ground teeth, a radiused back face that increases tooth strength, and many other must-have features.
