New and improved November 2017!
The Pax 1776 Saw, Thomas Flinns finest saw and a must have for all woodworking enthusiasts and is our flagship saw. Made with a heavily folded brass back roll marked with "Pax 1776 Sheffield England", it is made as a celebration piece commemorating the start of Pax saws and are made today to the same high standards they were two hundred years ago. The folded brass back means the blade is held under tension offering excellent rigidity and balance. The weight of the brass back aids the fine cutting ability of this saw. The traditional open handle is made from Walnut and has solid brass split nut and medallion. It is hand finished with Danish Oil to offer the perfect comfort and grip. This saw is the ultimate in beauty and also in its unrivalled performance. These saws are all tested before despatch.
Available in lengths 8", 10" (Standard) and 12" with 20tpi, in either Rip (for cutting with the grain) or Crosscut (for cutting across the grain) formation.
Blade depths are as follows:
8" Blade length = Blade depth 2"
10" Blade length = Blade depth 2"
12" Blade length = Blade depth 2 1/2"
