Bad Axe Saws – Smooth & Easy

  We had a great time last weekend at The Hand Tool Event at Melbourne Guild of Fine Woodworking. Lots of presentations, demos, tools & sausage sizzle, a complete weekend! One of our customers asked about the Bad Axe saws, we offered for him to try a carcass saw on a piece of hardwood. He made two straight cuts, turned around and said “I’ll have one thanks!”. This has happened before, the ease of cutting, the straightness of the cut, the balance of the tool, make a great impression on the woodworker.
