Product Description

Amazon.com

The MK Diamond 158434 MK-225 Hot Dog Diamond Blade is a premium-grade, thin-rim diamond blade built for wet cutting marble, porcelain, vitreous, and ceramic tile. Designed with innovative tenison slots, the MK-225 prevents dishing and blade wobble for precise cuts and improved safety. The blade's stiffened slot and ultra-thin kerf allow the MK-225 to cut with less drag and resistance than any other tile blade. This decreased resistance means longer blade life and increased cutting efficiency -- up to 10 percent faster than other porcelain blades. The MK-225 measures 7-by-0.05-by-5/8-inches (Diameter-by-Width-by-Arbor) and is not intended for use on metal, plastics, wood, or any other non-masonry materials.

Product Description

MK225 Hot Dog continuous rim. Premium grade thin rim blades for porcelain and vitreous tile. Must be used with wet cutting machine. 5/8'' arbor, .050 wide.

I ordered these based upon the recommendation of my tile supplier for a 2000 SF porcelain tile project (they didn't have my size in stock). Now I can't see using any other blade for porcelain at this point. They lasted a whole lot longer than I expected them to at this price point.

Just one thing to be aware of; for the first 30-40LF or so this blade is VERY aggressive cutting until the rim settles in, try to avoid any critical edge cuts at first. After it settles in it strikes a great balance between longevity, cut speed and cut quality.

I read just about everything i could trying to find out what the best blade was, and if the premium blades were worth the premium price.
The decision was basically between this and the QEP Black widow which had the second best ratings for the price...

So due to a bit of inexperience I thought i had worn this blade out and then bought the black widow anyway. So i have first hand experience with both.

Up front i will say the blade you buy may end up being irrelevant depending on several other factors. Including the quality saw your using, how well it is aligned, a good blade wont fix the problems of a bad machine...
Or depending on the kind of cuts you are making, if your cutting up your own mosaics that need fine edges vs just cutting end pieces that will be covered up anyway... Or the material your cutting a hard porcelain vs a soft ceramic.

That said, what i found...
The hot dog is made in korea is manufactured better to a higher tolerance.
The blade is more flat measuring less that 10mil overall run out.
Where the QEP was about double that and showed a visible wobble side to side which i tried, but couldn't easily fix.
A flat blade helps the finished cut quality. The hotdog could cut down to near a 1 mm strip, where the QEP would wobble and vibrate enough to break off a piece twice as thick...
So if you need to make very thin cuts, you want the hotdog.
Others have stated their hotdog blades are too thin and will tend to wander, but i believe that is more of a function of the saw they are using and unknowingly letting the hotdog blade wear unevenly that will cause a consistently worsening cut drift.
What no one states is that if their wander is consistently to one side or the other...

I've cut alot of tile in my life. Once I purchased this blade my cuts are more accurate, faster cutting and this blade really lasts. I've cut everything with this blade without any hesitation, including granite and travertine.

This blade is worth the money for faster, good quality tile cuts even through porcelain tiles. Amazon's price was about 30% less than the local tile store!

This is a decent blade BUT the kerf (thickness of the blade) is substantially thinner than standard. My admittedly low end wet saw has a fixed blade, which requires the user to feed the tile through the blade (not like a radial arm saw where the blade is hung and moves). The cantilevered splash guard that is above the blade is supported by a metal arm. Unfortunately, the blade is thinner than the arm, and the semi-cut tile won't push past the arm. Also, since this is a very thin blade, it tends to walk a bit if you put even a little side pressure on the tile other than directly into the blade cutting angle. I'm pretty sure this would be an outstanding blade for a high-end saw, but doesn't work well for my setup.

Blade works great put it on a ridgid 7" wet saw and it cuts very well - no chips so far. Used to cut ceramic and porcelain tile. As far as granite I will update.

Replaced the stock blade with this one. Well worth the purchase. Wish I had gotten this one early in the tile/granite job so I could comment on the durability. However so far so good.
