..they can be bent to that shape without trouble. I have one of the aforementioned 700mm saws, as well as a couple of shorter saws.

Even spring of it's sandwiched and then twisted (like a blacksmith will twist hot steel to make a spiral) over some distance will have memory, so I think this is a simple matter of holding the ends of the blade correctly and then turning it past 90 degrees to a point that it's past its elastic limit and retains 90 degrees. Should be very forgiving at spring temper.

I'll order a couple of the inexpensive carbon steel blades (vs. the turbo whatever and a half) and bend them.
