Knew Concepts lever tension swivel blade saws are designed to swing the rear of the frame out of the way. The ability to set the frame into a "neutral corner" gives you the ability to saw into areas that were never possible before. It swivels 45° to the right or to the left and has a lock at the "straight ahead" position.
It is a wonderful precision instrument but it is not bombproof - don't force it or try to bend it.
Knew Concepts recommend Pegas Swiss made sawblades and each saw is supplied complete with a Pegas No.11 skip tooth blade. This is a good blade for cutting wood up to 12mm or ½ inch thick.
Given the extensive range of blades that are available for different thicknesses of wood, metal and other materials, your Knew Concepts saw is a very versatile piece of kit.
Knew Concepts saws accept all plain ended 5 inch scroll saw blades up to 1.5mm deep.
Please see our Pegas section for a selection of the more popular Pegas saw blades
Supplied with anodised aluminium locking screws and natural sugar maple handle.

VERY practical when it comes to fit a blade, rotate it or apply and release tension. Strikingly low weight, not everyone will like it. Frame is very stiff and will tension the blade more than what could be achieved with an ordinary saw. Mouting system a bit limiting on the choice of blades.
I purchased this saw based on a video I saw of it in use. I am very pleased with it and whilst it is not cheap, typically the best never is. It is very light, but very strong and it is able to apply great tension to the blade. Buy with the confidence that you are buying a saw that will outlast you.
Wonderful balance. Easy and quick blade location and tension. Very stiff and keeps the tension when sawing allowing quick and very accurate cutting. It has transformed how I cut out the waste between tails and pins.
