The Pax 1776 Saw, Thomas Flinn's finest saw and a must have for all woodworking enthusiasts. NOW WITH AN ADDED DIFFERENCE! Made with a heavily folded brass back roll marked with "Pax 1776 Sheffield England", it is made as a celebration piece commemorating the start of Pax saws and are made today to the same high standards they were two hundred years ago. The folded brass back means the blade is held under tension offering excellent rigidity and balance. The weight of the brass back aids the fine cutting ability of this saw. The traditional open handle is made from English Elm and is hand finished with Danish Oil to offer the perfect comfort and grip. This saw is the ultimate in beauty and also in it's unrivalled performance. These saws are all tested before despatch. This is now available as a variable pitch version (10") with the teeth on the blade starting at 20tpi and gradually getting larger up to around 10tpi at the end of the blade. This type of saw allows easy starting of cuts and faster cuts due to the coarser teeth towards the end of the blade. Available in both rip and crosscut versions.
