The Crown Reversible Offset Saw is best suited for cutting close to flat surfaces without interference from the saw back or your hand, such as when trimming a dowels or tenons flush with the surface. It gets into more difficult spots where most other saws cannot. The 250mm-long high carbon-steel resharpenable blade is reversible for both right handed and left handed cuts, measuring just 0.5mm thick. The teeth are set and filed traditionally for a lifetime of crosscutting use with 15tpi. It has a solid brass back with a beautiful Rosewood handle that fits comfortably in hand.
