This large saw is used mostly in forestry work and the crosscutting of large logs, but in recent years it has been purchased by people aiming to cut their own firewood in a more traditional fashion. The saw is made from British CS80 steel with a Rockwell hardness of 44-46 and a thickness of 1.5mm to provide the superior stiffness required when cutting on long strokes. The blade’s tooth pattern is the Special Great American specifically designed with gullets to allow waste wood to be cleared while cutting. The handles are solid beech (the auxiliary handle included can be used for a two-man version if needed), and the teeth can be re-sharpened with a large triangular file.
