This week I discuss handsaws a little and share with you my thought on the PAX line of handsaws. There are a few places to find these saws. Here are a few links. Not all suppliers have the same saws. So, I advise you to check them all out. Have fun.

The Best Things
One thing that I missed in the video that I must mention has to do with the tooth line of the PAX saws. They are breasted.
This means that the tooth line has a curve to it, like the belly seen on two man cross cut saws. The idea is that a breasted saw will have less friction in the cut by allowing the teeth to clear the cut faster. It is difficult to feel a major change in the performance of a breasted vs. flat tooth line, but I can say that the PAX saws do flow through the cut very well. So, maybe it does help out.
