I believe the diamonds in the tile saw blades are larger grit (per size of blade) and there seems to be less of it (basically brute blades - chippy on hard things like agate).

Thanks Don.

The 303C and new 301 blades (and I assume all MK/BD blades with an arrow) have the diamonds oriented to cut in one direction.  They may cut either way but will cut better in proper direction.
If reversed for a few cuts do anything to freshen the diamonds, John?...then reversed to "arrow direction" again.
