Default Bandsaw Blade?

I'm just getting into wood carving Caricatures and need a new blade for my Bandsaw. What TPI and size would you recommend for doing pattern cutouts?

I like the Timber Wolf 3/16, 4 teeth Per inch /skip tooth blade. Olsen have good blades also but I lean towards the TimberWolf for bandsaw and Flying Dutchman for scroll saws.

I agree with Kenny on the size and teeth per inch, I might add, try this in the silicone blade, they are a little more expensive, but well worth the money.

Totally agree , 3/16 4 tooth skip is the way to go . Spend a few extra bucks for a quality blade and you won't be sorry .

contact Suffolk Machinery Corp. - Timber Wolf Band Saw Blades they sell the best blade imo...the "wolf" brand, not only that but they have very knowledgeable techs on hand that can help you get exactly what you need.....just tell them what you are after and they will talk to you about what kind of cutting you do..........great site!

Bill, Your right... I cant find the Timberwolf in a 3/16 4 tooth skiptooth but it looks like the Olsen gets very good reviews also, that might be the way to go. THANKS for all the input.

Mark, do keep in mind the size of the blocks you will be cutting when choosing your size.

Anthony, I have only cut 2" and 3" blocks so far. I'm trying to do a couple pieces from Mike Shipley's The Country Bear & his friends and Country Folk books... I wish could find someone that sells the cutouts. I have the books but I'm having problems with my band saw.
