Hi Mark. I understand that Europeans use mainly knives for their marquetry because their standard veneers are thinner and easier to cut with a knife, while the American standard has been thicker veneers, making it more comfortable to use saws. I’m not sure this is still the case, but that’s how the difference started. Of course the French have been using saws for a long time, but I think this is mainly due to them sawing several layers at once in packets on the Chevalet.
