When I designed my saws I wanted a handle material that was comfortable, durable, the proper weight to perfectly balance my saws, and affordable. Swanstone, a composite material reinforced with glass for durability, was the answer. Still, I had folks who wanted my saws with handles crafted out of unique species of select woods. So...
After teaching thousands of students to cut dovetails by hand and dealing with the problems they had when using traditional dovetail saws, I decided to design and build a saw to solve these problems.
My saw has the fit, balance, and cutting action that allow you to saw right to your pin and tail layout lines.

Using my "drop down technique", results in accurate setting of the board thickness.
The blade comes sharp, designed to sever th...
