My neighbor has an Ultra Thin Kerf Forrest 40T 10" WWII blade that he's offered to sell me for $50 which comes with the Forrest dampener/stiffener. The blade looks to be in excellent condition and appears to be a good price if you compare it to the price on a new UTK w/ dampener. My delima is that I recently paid $32 for a custom riving knife for my R4511 TS that is 0.09" in thickness, probably too thick to safely use with the UTK blade (5/64"). I can get a custom R4511 riving knife that will work w/ the UTK blade for another $32. My question, do you think it's a good buy and worth it for having a WWII UTK blade or should I just buy the regular thin kerf blade that will already work with my riving knife. I've always heard great things about the Forrest WWII blade but wasn't sure how people feel about the ultra thin kerf version. My neighbor just used it without any type of splitter. Thanks
