Cutting a 4x4 with an 8 1/4" circular saw

Can you cleanly cut a 4x4 in ONE PASS with an 8 1/4" circular saw blade ?

It's a test!

4x4 post is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 but the blade is going to have some portion that cant cut due to shaft or shield clearance, so the answer is probably no, I know my 10" miter saw will!

Sure that's not 7-1/4 not 8?
Still the answer is no.

I always use a 7.25" skilsaw along with a speed square. If you make 3 passes using the speed square the cut should come out perfect. [turning the 4x4 after each cut]
