Let's look at this thing logically. Why would Forrest, a
premium sawblade manufacturor with an excellent
reputation, selling their saw blades at a premium price,
license their blade designs and specifications to anyone
who will use it to compete with them at one third
Forrest blade prices, AND allow the Forrest name
and reputation to be associated with the resulting saw
blades? Forrest's market is the US, not Europe so
having a manufacturing site in Germany in order to
eliminate import duty doesn't seem worth it. This
doesn't make sense.
As far as I know, Forrest saw blades are made in the USA, not
Germany. As far as I know, Forrest does not license their
blade design or specs.
Have two Forrest WWII 10" blades that are both 40 tooth.
I don't think they make a 10" 36 tooth blade. Bought both
blades at a "show price" of $89 US, the "normal price"
normall being from $99 - $110 US.
Forrest blades come with a $5 off Forrest rehsarpening
coupon. Did these blades have such a coupon?
If it's a Forrest blade "Forrest" should be somewhere
on the blade.
Sounds like a salesperson wanting to make a sale.
