Check out this short video review of the Stanley Fat Max 20-331 Flush-Cut Saw.
I noticed this saw during a recent trip to Woodcraft and purchased it in hopes that it could cut 1” through leg tenons on the inside face of a curved seat blank. It worked quite well. The blade has enough flex to follow the gentle curve of the seat blank without leave any marks on surface of the blank. The teeth are quite sharp and cut through the ash leg tenons with minimal effort. I’m not sure of the quality of the steel, but it cut through 8 tenons with no problems tonight. The teeth remind me of a Japanese dovetail saw and could bend if not treated with some care, but the saw’s capabilities hinge on its thin profile. This saw will see a lot of use in my chair projects and easily earns 5 stars.
