Fret saw blades

By best, what do you mean, Kurt?   Blade selection is based on teeth per inch and ensuring at least 3 teeth on cut at all times.   I tend to use Sawbird's blades or Olson's... depending.  

 

Side note:  Some blades for the scroll saw are reversed tooth at the bottom of the blade to reduce the chances of tear out.

I was referring to tooth combinations, skip, reverse, etc. I was wondering if a particular type gave better control with hardwoods to enable better precision. I have usually used Olson in the past but on a power scroll saw, not by hand.

Kurt,

 

I'm still sorting things out myself.  I've found that if I can use it in my scroll saw, it'll work in the jewelers and fret frames.
