Default Metal bandsaw blade question

Has anybody ordered and used blades from WorldWide Saw. They seem to be very reasonable.
For a 1/2",M42, bi-metal, 15 ft, they want $48.70 plus shipping. I just wonder about the quality.

Nope, never heard of them but the price doesn't sound out of line.
I pay $18-$20 for 65 1/2" bimetal 1/2" blades locally for my little saw.

The same supplier offers one inch 137 inch blades for my Johnson at $58, last time I asked.

If you have to wonder about the quality, don't buy it. Spend a little more for a Lenox, Starrett, or Wikus and enjoy quality.
