Keep on toolmaking series this is a bowsaw very light inspired by the best toolmakers such as Gramercy or Eccentric or Glenn Drake, possitively I was wondering for a different handles which will improve performance and ergonomics. I realized classic backsaws have different tote angles and I thought it would be a good idea to test something like that since I have always like to push rather than pulling the teeth´s stroke even the blade I have include is japanese !!!!!!!!
I have used hard maple, zebrawood and mopane wood, I have to say as well I like more to use a cord than a wire with wingnut to put tension into the blade
