If you are doing any sort of demolition job where you need to cut through metal as well as wood you can't beat a demolition blade. Cheap blades are generally very thin and are only carbon steel - demoltion blades are thicker, have a more aggressive tooth form and have either HSS teeth or carbide teeth. The Milwaukee "Wrecker" or the even heavier Ax blades in HSS are particularly durable and outperform anything I've had from Hilti, deWalt or Bosch. Being thicker they are stiffer which confers some advantages in that they are more difficut to bend or break in the first instance. The Ax TCT blades are even better but you need to handle with a little bit of care as once you bend one they often won't always unbend without damaging or losing teeth! These are not cheap options, but they are very durable
