Dorchester 14" 13tpi Tenon Saw

Roberts & Lee Dorchester backsaws are a pleasure to work with, the teeth are set and sharpened by hand and cut smoothly with very little effort. The walnut handle is finished with Danish oil.

This 13tpi saw is designed for ripping along the grain to cut the cheeks of tenons and bridle joints. If you do have to dovetail thicker boards for chests, benches or tables it's nice to be able to bring out something with a bit more power than a fine delicate dovetail saw. The 14" blade gives a nice long efficient stroke and is supported by a folded brass spine, it is happiest on material up to an inch in thickness but will cope with occasional thicker material.

Backsaws use gravity and the weight of the spine to perform efficiently, they are far more accurate and easier to use if the wood is oriented and the saw kept vertical.

Blade depth: 3 inches

I am so pleased I bought it. What a difference good Quality makes. It cuts like the hot knife through butter. Well balanced. A real joy to work with. I am looking forward to lots of use in the years to come.
