“I have been teaching woodworkers to cut the mortise and tenon joint for years, the biggest problem I have witnessed was their inablilty to saw accurately, more often than not it's the saw not the sawyer.”
I not only make these saws, I also test each one so you can enjoy it “box to bench”.
Unique features of Rob’s tenon saw include;
start the kerf easily with the Super Fine 20 tpi starting tip, then gain the speed you need for heavy cuts with the 12 tpi blade - we eased the angle of the cutting face a few degrees to reduce the grabbing that accompanies larger saw teeth
our very slight .002” (per side) set makes for dead straight saw cuts and smooth ready to glue surfaces - the blade is 12 inches long and offers 2 ¾ depth of cut and is .025” thick for a little extra stiffness.
the extra weight of this saw provides better balance and helps reduce sawing vibration
balanced and durable “ebony resin” composite handle featuring memory enhancing carved finger recesses. For an additional charge, large handles available on request
in “old world” style, the saw comes packed in a sturdy pine crate made here in our shop
peened and flushed copper pins help secure the blade to the brass back
a pair of brass split nuts secure the handle to the blade and also to the brass back
