Pax Saws

Pax Saws

Made in Sheffield, Pax saws are Thomas Flinn's flagship range. The tenon saws and dovetail saws have handmade maple handles finished with Danish Oil, the teeth are sharpened by hand and a test cut is performed with each saw.

All Thomas Flinn Pax saws have polished folded brass backs that provide the perfect degree of tension in the blade. Unlike a slotted and glued saw back, folded brass back saws allow the blade to be reseated by tapping the back against a solid surface to correct minor distortions in the saw plate.
