Every hand-tool woodworker needs a minimum of three backsaws: Dovetail, Tenon, and Crosscut Saws. I designed and manufacture two different crosscut saws; my Joinery Crosscut and my Bench Crosscut to meet this requirement. 

Both of my crosscut saws are specialized for crosscutting applications.  My Bench Crosscut Saw is designed for general crosscutting while my Joinery Crosscut Saw is designed for making finished, ready-to-glue joinery cuts.

I designed my Bench Crosscut Saw with a hefty .025" thick blade, aggressive 13 tpi teeth filed crosscut, and a minimal .002 inch set per side.  The teeth, formed with a diamond-saw, slice cleanly and precisely through cross-grain wood fibers.  

The minimal set creates a small kerf that guides the saw straight in the crosscut while the shallow 2 inch depth of blade  (tooth-line to brass back) helps with stability while sawing to a line. The pistol grip handle conforms to your hand for a perfect, repeatable fit every time.

We offer limited edition saws with handles in variety of unique species of select woods.  

    Product Details:

    • Size. Overall length (Toe to handle tip): 15-7/8 inches.  Blade length (Toe to heal): 11 inches.  Depth of blade under the back: 2 inches.

    • Weight: 570 grams (20.1 oz). 

    • Blade. Made from .025 thick, spring steel.

    • Tooth Geometry. Filed crosscut at 13 teeth per inch (TPI) and a 0 degree tooth rake.

    • Set. Unlike most saw manufacturers who stamp out their saw teeth, leaving "dimples" in the blade, we individually cut out each of our saw teeth with a diamond saw.  This allows us to maintain a very slight set of only .002 inch (per side), since we don't introduce that "dimple" onto the blade.  This slight set produces a narrow .029 inch kerf that eliminates slop allowing the saw blade to accurately track in the saw kerf resulting in dead straight saw cuts with smooth ready to glue surfaces.

    • Brass Back: The brass back is 1/4″ thick x 15/16″ wide and is secured to the blade with peened and flushed copper pins.  Not only does the brass look wonderful  it imparts extra weight to the saw providing you a better balanced saw.  This enables  the saw to do the cutting work and helps you "feel" perpendicular.

    • Handle. Each of our "pistol grip" handles have memory enhancing carved finger recesses for a perfect and comfortable fit. A pair of brass split nuts secures the handle to the blade and the brass back.  Our crosscut saws are available in ebony Swanstone, a resin-composite material reinforced with glass for durability.  

    • Handle Size & Determining your Size: Our handles come in two sizes: Regular and Large.  Please refer to the picture above showing how to measure your hand and determine what size handle is correct for you size hand.

    Great Saw!

    The fourth in my collection of RC saws. Works fantastic as advertised, and if your sawing technique is solid, you can get almost as good a finished cut as with the Joinery Crosscut. This one plows through stock for a quick clean cut.
