We have been talking quite a bit about the new Dewalt FlexVolt tools, and will soon turn your attention to some of the new FlexVolt power tool accessories that are coming out – mainly saw blades, angle grinder cutting wheels and flap discs, and hole saws.
When looking to see which Dewalt FlexVolt accessories were on the way to market, I came across a new 7-1/4″ demolition circular saw blade that’s part of the 2X Long Life lineup.
The new Dewalt DWA31724D saw blade is designed for framing applications, and also for use in demolition applications where you might encounter nails in the wood you’re cutting.
As you might have experienced, hitting a nail with a saw blade that’s strictly designed for cutting wood can have nasty consequences, the least being broken saw teeth.
- 7-1/4″ with 24T and 5/8″ (16 mm) arbor
- 24T for fast cutting
- Premium carbide teeth for longer life and extended use
- Face ground tooth profile for lower cutting force
- Reinforced shoulder design
- Body slot technology for smoother cuts
- Diamond arbor knock-out
- Laser-cut plate
The DEWALT DWA31724D 7-1/4″ Demolition Saw Blade features a reinforced shoulder design for impact resistance. The premium carbide teeth are designed for longer life and extended use. This blade also offers a laser-cut plate with patented body slots. Designed for use in demolition and framing.

This isn’t the only demo or nail-cutting framing blade by Dewalt – the DW3191 blade is a nail-cutting construction blade ($12 via Amazon), and there are of course demo blades from other brands as well, such as Diablo ($16-17 via Amazon). But if this new Dewalt blade makes good on its 2X Long Life claim, it could be more economical over time.
If you saw this on the shelf at your local supplier, would you buy it over your favored framing blade? Do you have a favorite brand of demo circular saw blade?
