These saws have American black walnut handles and carry the solid silver medallions and brass screws and nuts. They're fancy saws that like to be wined and dined and treated well. These saws look great and will last you a lifetime.
These are made to the same exacting standards as the workshop saws, but like to get out and about a bit more. As a result they have beech handles and brass medallions, to cope with the scrapes that life throws at them.
All my saws are custom made to your requirements, any length, depth and thickness of plate. Typically most rip saws will be 26-28" long and 8.5" deep at the handle, while most cross cut saws will be 24-26" long and 7.5" deep at the handle.
If you have any specific requirements please contact me to discuss your options.
The blades are all made from CS95 spring steel, hardened and tempered to take and maintain a sharp edge, without being too brittle and risk snapping when setting.
I taper grind all of my saws, making them thinner along their back edge. This has three benefits.
- It makes the saw lighter and moves the weight to the tooth line, this improves control of the saw when cutting.
- It makes the saw less likely to jam in the saw cut.
- It reduced the amount of set required, less set = thinner cut = less effort.
