Today I finally got the chance to try out Roeland his new made dovetail-saw…..What an amazing piece !!! Besides custom-made planes Roeland also builds saw and other tools. This saw is build totally by hand.

This saw is priced at 120 euro’s…I think that is great value for money.

You can find his planes on facebook ” Brekelplanes “

That doesn’t seem like a bad price to pay for a high quality dovetail saw (although I’m not sure on the whole euro thing. That’s metric right? So you double it and add 32 to get dollars?) But how comfortable is that handle? It looks like the edges are squared off, or is that a trick of the light?

Justjoe, I think the price is 163 us- dollar.

The handle is rounded over, not square !

If you want this saw also than send me message and I’ll forward it to Roeland himself.

Beautiful saw Rick. When I come to Europe again. I will make a plan to visit him and pick out a nice German tool.

Interesting handle. I wouldn’t think it would be correct ergonomically

What a whimsical design! It really is nice, but I wonder what the benefit is to having the handle so high in relation to the saw plate. Wouldn’t it be harder to see where you want to cut?
