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. It is made from British CS80 steel with a Rockwell hardness of 44-46 and a thickness of 1.5mm to provide the superior stiffness needed to cut long strokes. The blade’s tooth pattern is a Peg Tooth formation at 1 TPI, hand set, and cut with the pull/push stroke in each direction. The two handles are solid beech, and the teeth can be re-sharpened with a large triangular file.
- 2 large beech handles
- Peg Tooth 1 TPI pattern for use on logs, etc.
- Can be re-sharpened using a large triangular file
- British CS80 Steel, 1.5mm thick blade
