Working with your hands in creating fine furniture is not a thing of the past. The old adage of “what you put into your work, is what you get out of it”, still holds true today. Rob Cosman is the epitome of this statement. Teaching handcut joinery is a small yet essential part of woodworking when using dovetail construction. Experience is the other piece that comes in time. When you first start in any venue of woodworking, you sometimes need an expert to help you along. Rob Cosman, Your Hand Tool Coach has been inspiring new and experienced woodworkers with fine woodworking techniques for many years. His insight, wisdom and patience goes beyond perfection. If you have attended any of his classes, shows, or workshops, you know what I am talking about. He captures the audience right from the start as he really gets into what he does best… sharing and teaching.
I picked up this saw after using somebody else's 20 TPI saw which I liked. It's fairly sharp out of the package. Sharp enough that I'm not going to mess with it. It has a nice thin kerf and cuts smooth with little to no fringe on the out side of the cut. It feels good in the hand and is easy to control. I'm using it primarily for dovetails and have not found any negatives so far. I cleaned the lacquer off the blade with some acetone first. I highly recommend doing so if you get this saw. This saw is a winner.
Good little saw, but poorly advertised.
This is a quality saw for the price. It saws a fine cut with little resistance. But it's a crosscut saw, making it unsuitable for nearly all dovetail applications. I'm not sure why woodcraft doesn't specify why kind of saw this is. If you're looking for a small, sharp crosscut saw that is not only effective but also attractive, this one's for you. If you're looking to cut dovetails, buy a different saw.
Good Saw, Good Price
Got it based on the reviews and haven't been disappointed. Honed it for a smaller kerf although it worked fine before. Handles dovetails with ease.
Sharp and very thin blade
A Surpurb Saw.Woodcraft is the best
Nothing more to say.....it's a great saw at a very reasonable price. Thanks Woodcraft!!! You too Lynx !! I have had no problems with it, nor with other products I've purchased from Woodcraft. In my opinion, Woodcraft has quality products, reasonable prices [...] Ok, I said more anyway.
This well made and fairly priced tool with proper care should last many years. Good steel well made. A pleasure to use. I wish that WOODCRAFT would only carry tools of this quality or better.
I have only used this saw for a month or so but it does exactly what I bought it for. It makes very smooth, precise cuts. I added no cons because they were obvious when I bought the saw. It will be difficult to sharpen when the time comes and a saw of this size has limited uses. I certainly intend to buy the Lynx 26" crosscut saw and possibly a mortising saw as well.
The most used tool in the shop
With thin blade, I use this saw all the time when I need to crosscut small part, thin stock and very delicate trims. It also performs well for cutting joinery.
