Hand Saw

In woodworking and carpentry, hand saws, also known as "panel saws", are used to cut pieces of wood into different shapes. This is usually done in order to join the pieces together and carve a wooden object. They usually operate by having a series of sharp points of some substance that is harder than the wood being cut. The hand saw is a bit like a tenon saw, but with one flat, sharp edge.

Handsaws have been around for thousands of years. Egyptian hieroglyphics exist depicting ancient woodworkers sawing boards into pieces. Ancient bow saws have been found in Japan. The cut patterns on ancient boards may be observed sometimes to bear the unique cutting marks left by saw blades, particularly if the wood was not 'smoothed up' by some method. As for preservation of handsaws, twenty-four saws from eighteenth-century England are known to survive.[1]

Sometimes cultures developed two main types of saw teeth: the cross cut saw teeth and the rip saw teeth. These cut into the wood using different mechanisms. Wood is composed of many long cells running length-ways. Thus, crosscut saws have sawteeth that are usually shaped, often with a metal file, in such a way that they form a series of tiny knifelike edges. The wood cells are contacted by the knife-edge of the tooth and cut. Rip saws, on the other hand, are usually shaped so that they form a series of tiny chisel-like edges. The wood cells are contacted by the chisel and 'ripped' apart from the bundle of other cells. It is common that people do not recognize the difference and use saws both ways. However, a rip saw is much faster than a cross-cut saw when cutting with the grain but leaves a very rough cut, often with splinters on the surface, and has more difficulty maintaining a straight cut when cutting across the grain. The cross-cut saw can cut in any direction but is much slower than needs be when cutting with the grain.

Our customers love our strong utility saws and our selection of Silky saws. Silky handsaws are designed from specialized Japanese steel and have specially designed tapered blades to help keep the blade moving through the entire cut without binding and sticking. The Zubat is one of the most widely used handsaws by arborists worldwide and for good reason too! So, the hype is definitely real with this one.

The hack saw was created to cut through metal, and due to its thin blade, it works well to cut through thin materials such as plastic or metal pipes. For very occasional use, it could also be used as a multi-purpose saw for cutting through wood, but this could damage the blade. This saw holds a fine-toothed blade under tension across a C-frame, typically with between 18 and 32 teeth per inch. The hack saw is one of the most common types of saws and is an essential hand tool for small DIY jobs around the home.

This saw is used for making rough cuts of wood, for example, trimming branches or cutting lumber, and is designed to cut across the grain of the wood (i.e., perpendicular to the grain). These saws have large teeth and a relatively thick blade to make it sturdy against rough wood. Crosscut saws can be for use by one person, or for two people simultaneously. The two-person crosscut saws have a handle at either end and are also sometimes called a lumberjack saw. These are great for cutting backyard planks to size, and might also be handy on camping trips.

A bow cut saw is a modern type of crosscut saw. It is a medium-sized hand tool that is most commonly used outdoors for pruning trees and cutting logs. A bow cut saw has crosscut teeth that are able to remove sawdust while being pushed in and out. Their blades are fairly long and narrow, making them suitable for cutting thick sections of wood. They can also be used to make curved cuts.

A rip cut saw is one of the most common types of saws that anyone who works with wood will own, and probably the saw that gets used the most often as it is versatile and suitable for a number of jobs. A rip cut saw is designed to cut wood parallel to the grain. It has few teeth per inch compared to most other hand saws, though each tooth is very sharp to remove chips of wood as it works, almost like a collection of chisels working together all at once.

These saws are specifically designed for use in the garden, as a quick and easy means of pruning trees and large shrubs. They have a single curved handle attached to a curved blade, and can easily access even hard to reach branches hidden amongst dense-growing trees. Pruning saws have many more teeth per inch than similar-sized saws, making them an excellent tool for smaller pruning jobs when a chainsaw would be unnecessary.

Power saws are saws that are powered by rechargeable batteries, electricity, or gas motors to make cuts. These can be stationary tools or portable tools. They are great for efficiency and precision and help to complete cutting jobs much more quickly than hand saw equivalents. The drawback of these is that they can be quite costly, though if you buy a reliable option, it should see you through many years of cutting. While many of these power saws are simple to use, some may be complex and dangerous to operate, and special training might need to be taken before you proceed with working with power saws.

A jigsaw is a handheld power tool that can make both straight and curved cuts. It has a downward pointing blade that is guided along by an upper handle and can come in both corded and cordless varieties. They are lightweight and easy to handle, as well as being fairly quiet, and are most suitable for cutting out patterns in thin materials such as plywood. Thicker blades are available to be purchased for jigsaws to allow them to cut through metal, tile, or ceramic, but these are not typically included as standard. Jigsaws are a versatile tool that will see heavy use in home woodworking households.

Pole saws consist of a telescopic pole with a chainsaw attached to the opposite end to the handle. These saws are designed for pruning and trimming hedges and trees of tall heights, without having to use a ladder. Pole saws can be battery powered and, therefore, cordless, electric powered, or powered by a gas engine.

These saws have a small blade attached to a drill-style handle. They are handheld saws that are powered by rechargeable batteries or corded electric. They are versatile enough to be used on a variety of projects, from construction, home DIY, or crafting. They are an alternative to handheld keyhole saws and are particularly useful for cutting drywall, paneling, or patterns.

This saw resembles a cross between a table saw and a circular saw. It has a round blade attached to a handle which is pulled down by the user to cut their materials underneath, but it also attaches to a track so that it glides along the rails to give perfect straight cuts every time with minimal effort.

Our customers rave about how sharp and fast-cutting Silky hand saw blades are. The key is in the unique tooth designs which have evolved out of more than 20 years of product development. The fine pruning saws are unbeatable for detail work. Large Silkys can replace chainsaws for small to medium-sized cuts in the tree. Silky hand saws cut faster, stay sharp longer, and grip better than traditional saws.

4 cutting angles along the length of the blade leave a clean, smooth surface. Cuts on the pull-stoke for maximum control and ergonomic advantage. Mono-constructed blade runs all the way through the handle, eliminating stress and breakage. Comes with custom scabbard that has D-ring and strap slots to enable attachment to leg, belt, or tool board/curtain.

The handle of the Sugoi is big and roomy, with cushioned rubber grip. This saw will not only cut fast, but you'll be comfortable and less fatigued while you do it. The Sugoi 330mm is a fantastic evolution of the original Sugoi.

Silky's curved Tsurugi is a wonder of saw technology. The thin blade will fit in tight crotches without trouble or damage to nearby limbs, yet it sports the same large pruning teeth that have made Silky saws like the Sugoi popular for their aggressive cutting. The design of the Tsurugi is minimalist, with no screws, bolts, or other parts to keep the handle together. Rather the handle is a two-part molded rubber handle which fits perfectly and securely around the full tang for balanced saw with a comfort grip and no added bulk.

The scabbard for the Tsurugi is the best saw scabbard we've yet seen. The lightweight aluminum body protects the saw, and eight internal rollers make sure the blade glides into place and then the handle 'locks' into place as the two nubs on the rubber handle pass through the rollers.

The Tsurugi comes to the market as perhaps the lightest-weight, best-balanced "big saw" ever produced, having no handle screws, nuts or extraneous hardware to get in the way. The comfortable 2-part rubber grip is held together by an ingenious integration with the blade tang. The Tsurugi comes in a unique aluminum scabbard that can be attached to the belt or leg, and has eight rollers protecting the entryway.

The Gomtaro is a beautifully balanced straight saw. Excellent for pruning in the formative years of a tree's life. Mono-construction with a molded hand grip, the Gomtaro is ideal for all pruning tasks.

Is your DIY project list growing long? Cut it down to size with the best handsaws available today. Our experts bought and tested the best 9 models available to the test, so you don't have to. "Buy it right or buy it twice" has never been more applicable than when purchasing tools, as the number of options and the range in quality continues to increase. Our carpentry experts created a methodical test plan to evaluate each model we bought. The key areas of performance are the ones you care about most, such as speed and efficiency, cut quality, accuracy, and blade durability. We got our hands on many different handsaws, so you only have to purchase one.

The IRWIN Coarse Cut ProTouch is a compact, well-balanced, all-around saw built for speed. If you're only looking for one handsaw in your toolkit, this is it. The Easy Start front teeth on this model put a cut above everything else and earned it our favor overall. It's insanely simple to build an initial groove, and once started, you can fluidly transition to full strokes. The combination of wood and ergonomically molded rubber in the handle provides the weight and sturdiness you want while still being comfortable to hold over several cuts. The tri-ground teeth slice through wood with ease, and the deep gullets in the blade allow sawdust to escape, so it is less likely to bind mid-cut. 041b061a72
