The only sensible way to cut G10 is with a carbide tip - it eats
high-speed steel due to the glass.
For the odd few cuts a coarse metal or fine wood jigsaw blade would do
it but not last long. The carbide-dust coated blades sold for tile
cutting would be better. A suitably fine-toothed TCT circular saw
would probably also be good, if a little scary!
