What kind of blade should I use. Fine or coarse?
What??? you want to stay on topic??

I'd say a finer tooth blade, maybe even a metal cutting hacksaw style. You're likely to get some melting anyway, and the coarse saw marks are harder to clean up. I've cut similar stuff on a tablesaw and tried to 'iron out' the kerf marks but didn't really have any luck with that. A fine cheese-grate type rasp might do a decent job of post-cut cleanup.

Don't forget to disinfect the blade before cutting the raw meat template...
