Backsaws

12-inch Gent’s Saws

The 12-inch Blue Spruce Gent’s Saw features a 14 ppi hybrid tooth pattern adept at both cross cuts and rips. Combining state-of-the-art CNC grinding equipment with Cubic Boron Nitride grinding wheels, Blue Spruce produces a flawless toothline that will undoubtedly exceed your expectations. Supporting that toothline is a spine unlike any other. Our steel spines go through a proprietary process to relieve any stress in the material and flatten them to industry-leading tolerance. This perfectly straight, stable spine allows us to mill the slot for the blade to a precision fit, keeping the blade tension consistent and your cuts right on track. 

The chisel-style handle provides a hand position that many beginners find more intuitive than pistol-grip handles.  But even the most experienced hand tool users will find the Gent’s Saw convenient for certain detail work. Blue Spruce offers your choice of resin-infused figured Maple or Cocobolo for the handle of your Gent’s Saw.

    The Blue Spruce Backsaw Holster
    Fine-joinery backsaw blades are usually quite thin, and they can be prone to gaining 'memory' for stresses that have been placed on the blade when being stored. But with our specially designed holster, never have to worry about storing your cherished Blue Spruce Backsaw. The steel, carbide black powder coated holster cradles the spine of the saw, allowing the blade to rest without any stress whatsoever. We put our holster to the test, inserting and removing a single backsaw over 3,500 times. There was no hint of the coating failing, and not a scratch on the saw's spine or blade. While the holster is designed around our line of backsaws, we also tested it with a variety of backsaws, from 150+ years ago to various modern makers and in all shapes and sizes—they all fit. However, we can only guarantee fit with Blue Spruce Toolworks backsaws. The holster can be mounted in a horizontal or vertical position to suit your needs. It can be placed on a wall, under a shelf, diagonally on a workbench leg, or even underneath your workbench top.

    Note that we make your products to order and lead times can be up to 6-8 weeks. We will make every effort to get your items to you as soon as possible.
