    Review: Handsaws

    Review Archive




    Introduction

    Although circular saws and jigsaws are now being used for many DIY cutting operations, the handsaw still remains an essential piece of kit. Most modern handsaws have hardpoint teeth requiring no sharpening or setting. The smoothness of the cut is dictated by the number of teeth per inch (TPI) the blade has; the more teeth per inch the smoother the cut.

    In the past three different saws were needed for different cutting operations: a cross-cut saw was needed to cut across the grain; a ripsaw to cut with the grain; and a panel saw was required for cutting large sheet materials. Thankfully most modern handsaws are designed to perform all three functions.
