Every hand-tool woodworker needs a minimum of three backsaws: Dovetail, Tenon, and Crosscut Saws. I designed and manufacture two different professional Crosscut Saws: my Joinery Crosscut and my Bench Crosscut to meet this requirement. 

Both of my crosscut saws are specialized for crosscutting applications.  My Joinery Crosscut Saw is designed for making finished, ready-to-glue joinery cuts.  My Bench Crosscut Saw is designed for general crosscutting tasks.

I designed my Joinery Crosscut Saw with a thin .020 inch blade,  fine 15 tpi teeth filed crosscut, and a minimal .002 inch set per side.  The teeth, formed with a diamond-saw, slice cleanly and precisely through cross-grain wood fibers.  

The minimal set creates a small kerf that guides the saw straight in the crosscut while the shallow 1-5/8 inch depth of blade  (tooth-line to brass back) helps with stability while sawing to a line. The pistol grip handle conforms to your hand for a perfect, repeatable fit every time.

The shallow depth of blade  (tooth-line to brass back) helps stability while sawing to a line. The pistol grip handle conforms to your hand for a perfect, repeatable fit every time.

We offer limited edition saws with handles made from a variety of unique species of select woods.  

Product Details:

  • Size: Overall length (Toe to handle tip): 15-1/8 inches.  Blade length (Toe to heal): 10 inches.  Depth of blade under the back: 1-5/8 inches.

  • Weight: 18-20 ounces. 

  • Blade: Made from .020" thick, spring steel.

  • Tooth Geometry: Filed crosscut at 15 teeth per inch (TPI) and a 0 degree tooth rake.

  • Set: Unlike most saw manufacturers who stamp out their saw teeth, leaving "dimples" in the blade, we individually cut out each of our saw teeth with a diamond saw.  This allows us to maintain a very slight set of only .002 inch (per side), since we don't introduce that "dimple" onto the blade.  This slight set produces a narrow .024 inch kerf that eliminates slop allowing the saw blade to accurately track in the saw kerf resulting in dead straight saw cuts with smooth ready to glue surfaces.

  • Brass Back: The brass back is 1/4″ thick x 7/8″ wide and is secured to the blade with peened and flushed copper pins.  Not only does the brass look wonderful  it imparts extra weight to the saw providing you a better balanced saw.  This enables  the saw to do the cutting work and helps you "feel" perpendicular.

  • Handle: Each of our "pistol grip" handles have memory enhancing carved finger recesses for a perfect and comfortable fit. A pair of brass split nuts secures the handle to the blade and the brass back.  Our crosscut saw handles are made of ebony Swanstone, a resin-composite material reinforced with glass for durability.  

  • Handle Size & Determining your Size: Our handles come in two sizes: Regular and Large.  Please refer to the picture above showing how to measure your hand and determine what size handle is correct for you size hand.

My Favorite Saw

From the very first cut, this became my favorite saw. Clean, straight, fine and feels amazing in the hand. I'm a novice woodworker, and I didn't convince myself to go for the purchase until I had a significant project on my hands where I knew I'd use it. I'd been using a decent Japanese pull saw, which could get the job done, but the difference of using the Joinery Crosscut was amazing. The fit to hand, the easy of holding the angle and keeping the cut true, and the ability for the saw to maintain such a straight cut once the kerf is started. Not only does this saw get the job done, but it feels incredible -- second only to pulling perfect shavings from a hand plane. Well designed and worth every hard-earned penny!

Excellent saw

I love the weight of the saw and the natural gravity of it to just want to parallel and cut. The handle fits my hand perfectly, I should've bought the bigger one, but more of an excuse to continue to buy these awesome saws.

Do what is promised to do

This is a review of the dovetail and the joinery crosscut saws. 1) In light of the current difficulties to get certain tools at all (summer/autumn 2021), purchase and delivery went very well. 2) Both saws make it easy to start a cut. I am finding myself using the starter teeth less and less, but I always start the cut with them. 3) The saws come sharp. Stayed sharp so far, but they are only a couple of weeks in. 4) For me, this is a reverse trip coming from the Gyokucho #370 and #372 to western style saws for fine work. The RC saws are good tools.

Joinery Crosscut Saw

I recently bought this to go with Rob’s superb Dovetail Saw. Have just started putting it to use, so far on 3/8” thick stock which it glides through very smoothly. The heft and balance help to make square cuts easier and the quality of the saw (attention to detail in it’s design and manufacture) is self evident. The 24 thou kerf leaves a very cleanly cut surface and overall it’s a pleasure to use. This is a high quality item, and worth the cost if you can stretch to it.
