Will saw blades marked "cordless circular saw" work on a corded saw? I have a 6 1/2" Skill saw, corded, and some new saw blades marked for cordless saws. Can I use them or should I take them back and exchange. Thanks for your help.

I have never seen blades marked that way.
What are the RPM's of the corded vs. the cordless unit. Compare them to the limit on the blade. If they're within specs, I see no reason not to use them.

Your answer was right on ! My 6 1/2" corded saw runs at 5,500 RPM. Most corded saws run at 5,000, with some as high as 6,100 RPM. Cordless saws run 1,000 to 3,500 RPM. Stamp on the blade states that it is good to 7,000 RPM. The blades are DeWalt and stamped "Fits 6 1/2" cordless saws". Thank you for your answer. I can use them. The sales receipt states "Cordless saw blade".

H-m-m-m-m! I've never heard of that either. Next thing you known they will be labelling the saw blades with "left side" and "right side" in addition to the direction arrow.:)

The sales receipt has no bearing on the blade use. Stamped on the blade is a different story.
