Back in the summer of 1987 master craftsman Tage Frid showed me his ingenious method of finishing the saw cuts on the pin board of a half-blind dovetail joint.   I couldn't believe how well and fast his method worked - it was like magic! Neil, a student from South Africa, suggested I make Tage's idea into a tool.  That inspired my Kerf X-10 (extend the saw cut - get it?).  If you cut half-blind dovetails you will love this tool!

  • Kerf X-10: 3/4 size completes the saw cut in half blind dovetails.

  • Waste removal is faster than paring and more accurate.

  • Works in soft and hardwoods.

  • The Kerf X-10: 3/4 size works in saws kerfs in the .019 inch to .021 inch width range, such as our 3/4 dovetail saw.

  • Handle is made of Cherry.

  • Blade is affixed to the ¼ inch x ¾ inch brass back with peened copper pins.

  • Brass back has a  1-1/2 inch x ¼ inch x ¼ inch tenon epoxied into the handle.

  • Working edge of the blade is squared to the sides and ready for use.

  • Overall length is 7 inch, blade length 2 ¾ inch, depth ¾ inch.

Great Dovetail Tool

I have the original Kerf tool and purchased the 3/4 tool to use with a thinner saw blade. It works like a charm. Saves a lot of time.
