Bought this saw at traditionalwoodworker.com. Did a lot of research and they had the best price. After playing with old Disston saws for a few years this is a real eye opener. This saw seemed more rigid and cut lots better. I stayed out in the shop and cut a few more pieces of lumber just because I enjoyed it so much. Highly recommend.

I agree that this is a great saw. I’ve had mine for a few years and it has become my tool or choice for initially cross-cutting my rough lumber. My last project used some of a massive 16/4 cherry board over 10’ long. If I didn’t have this saw, I probably would have resorted to a chain saw.

The taper ground is a very important feature of this saw.
