Technically, the number of teeth per length in a saw blade correlates to
the _thickness_ of the material, not its hardness.  The classic rule is "6
teeth in the thickness"

What a very hard wood like ebony needs is a slow blade speed, more in the
metal cutting range (a few hundred feet per minute) than the wood cutting
one (of a few thousand).

That typically means a fundamentally different design for a power saw, with
an extra reduction stage.
