Bad Axe Saws

Bad Axe Saws

Handcrafted in the town of La Crosse on the banks of the beautiful upper reaches of the Mississippi river, the lavish investment of time in the manufacture of Bad Axe saws is evident with every stroke.

Bad Axe saws are made in the American tradition for accurate, fast cutting backsaws with low hang angles and aggressive pitches. Every Bad Axe saw is individually hand filed and hammer set. Before they leave Bad Axe Tool Works, each saw is individually tested by cutting to the full depth of the saw plate in black locust wood to check that it has been tuned to perfection.

The overall standard of fit and finish is beautiful. From the polished sawplate with individually hand filed teeth, to the comfortable neatly installed handle, they are almost as impressive to look at as they are to use.
