Designed specifically to cut dry, furniture-grade, soft and hardwoods, our hand saws are made from hefty .035 inch thick, durable SK85 spring steel that has a Rockwell hardness between 55-60The thick saw plate makes our hand saws quite stiff which provides for easy and kink-free sawing and the steel retains its edge longer than other varieties, but still easily hand sharpened. 

The teeth are cut using a CNC diamond saw, filed rip with 7 teeth per inch (TPI), and have a minimal .003 inch set per side. This makes for a highly consistent and sharp tooth line that slices cleanly and precisely through long-grain wood fibers while the minimal set keeps the saw laser straight in the cut.  

Our closed handle design harkens back to the Disston D-7 saws of yesteryear, but with our own unique modifications. Our handles have memory enhancing carved finger recesses for a perfect and repeatable fit.

Four brass split nuts and bolts secure the handle to the blade at a hang angle of 16 degrees which keeps your wrist aligned with your forearm for better and more comfortable body mechanics while sawing.  We make our handles from ebony Swanstone, a resin-composite material reinforced for durability and weight.

A beautiful and great working saw

Big jump up from an Amazon special spear & Jackson rip saw. Rob’s saw cuts straight and sharp out of the box.

Finally I’ve been wanting one for awhile and it is what I need. Perfect size and handles nicely

George Barnes
Beautiful cuts.

I bought both a rip and a crosscut and it was a great decision. Both saws perform better than I expected and made for little work cleaning up with a plane even in Tiger maple. I'm looking forward to trying some of your joinery saws.
