The President’s Pick
Signature Series Concrete Blade contains the highest diamond concentration and quality for its application. Designed for professionals who seek a high-quality blade at a lower diamond cost. This tool provides aggressive cutting, especially when encountering rebar and hard aggregates like granite.
The Signature Concrete Blade is designed for a variety of saws: low HP slab, high speed and masonry saws.
Name Game: We introduced Star Diamond to the national stage through an exhibition at the World of Concrete. In those early days, we were one of 15 diamond blade suppliers exhibiting at the WOC. One of my associates suggested that Star should have a president’s choice blade, so I took his advice and introduced the Signature Series diamond blade line that year.

How to Use:
- Make sure that you have chosen the proper blade for the application.
- Assure that the saw blade flange, shaft and guard are in good condition. Check your manufacturer’s user guide for safety precautions.
- Mount the blade in the proper rotation. Check for an arrow on the saw blade or look at the diamond segment to determine the direction. The diamond in the matrix appears as a “comet” with a diamond head and a “tail” following behind. The direction of the blade follows the “comet”.
- When cutting through a slab, make sure that you clear the blade from the cut before the slab shifts. If not, you could pinch the blade between the slabs immediately inhibiting the blade and possibly tearing away segments.
- To remove the blade, cut it free from the slab using another blade instead of pulling it out or risk bending the core.
Tips & Tricks:
Make sure that you vacuum and clear any dust that is left in the crack to prevent unwanted adhesion.
Never force the blade to cut, allow the weight of the saw be the cutting pressure. Always keep the RPMs of the saw constant.
Start by making a very shallow ½” cut to establish a base guide.
If the blade becomes dull, cut a concrete block to re-dress the blade.
Anything that is extremely abrasive or fine should be cut with a material specific blade.
