Pax Traditional Hand Saw Set of 3
Pax handsaws are for those looking to buy one handsaw that will eventually be passed down to the grandchildren. These saws can be resharpened using a precision file (sold separately) to ensure that this saw could be the last saw you ever need to buy.
Many woodworkers find a need for 3 types of handsaw; rip for rip cutting, standard for general use and panel for breaking down panels. To meet this need we have curated two sets of the long and short traditional hand saws.
Thomas Flinn, a manufacturer in Sheffield, produces what are probably the finest of all traditional saws made to the European design. "A cut above the rest" is the firm's motto, and with it they put on the market solid-brass-backed saws, most painstakingly manufactured. Their "Pax" range of saws, which takes its name from a trademark launched in 1776 and revived by Thomas Flinn, is here presented. These saws are not only an absolute must for anyone who wants to have a first class cut, they are a joy to behold.
PAX handsaws are one of the finest handsaws available today. Using the history and tradition of PAX, these saws are still made to original specifications. Handcrafted from the finest alloy steel these saws are taper ground and breasted (meaning less teeth are in contact with the wood and therefore less friction) and are precisely set and sharpened by hand to ensure the best possible cut without binding. The handle is made from the finest walnut.
