This is idiotic. How could anyone believe such a stupid thing? Just buy an ordinary American blade and flip it around! Anyone who tells you different is just trying to rip you off.
The teeth will be pointing backwards, but that's fine. Just remember to feed from the back of the table saw, from the motor side for a contractor saw, cabinet and hybrids are even easier. (You'll probably have to chuck out the blade guard if you can find it, unless you have one of those ones suspended from above by a long arm. Those are easy to turn around.)

-------------------------------------- Many years ago NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) adopted the following:
"Distribution" devices such as transformers shall be rated at 120 Volts and multiples there of while "Utilitazition" devices such as motors shall be rated at 115 Volts and multiples there of.
The 5 volt difference was provided to allow for line losses.
The 110/220 Volt rating predates the above back to the days of Edison.
